Altar of Love - Ben Harper feat Ellen Harper

She was his high school sweetheart, 'til death do them part
Wife of so many years, been through blood sweat and tears
She raises his kids, while he went out and did
All of those things a successful man does

He always works late, determines his own fate
He's found his true match, he's found his soul mate
Sorry he says, sorry he feels
Can't help himself he fell head over heels

And now she's another wife and a mother
Sacrificed on the alter of love
She's just another wife and a mother
Earning her righteous place up above

Beautiful stranger, she's so enthralled
She hangs on every word, makes him feel like god
Pleads with his dear wife, but she's heard it all twice
With stars in his eyes, it's true love! he cries

And now she's another, wife and a mother
Sacrificed on the alter of love
She's just another wife and a mother
Earning her righteous place up above
