What does it mean - You are left holding the knife?
" He runs to his wife and you're left holding the knife" it is from the song about the summer love affair

ok, thank you
I can only think of this: they are having dinner in a romantic restaurant (it's a summer affair, i.e. the beginning of a relationship, even if it is to be short-lived) . At a certain point, probably during the main course, the man just gets up and "runs back to his wife", so the girl is literally left "holding the knife" (that's right before she drops o it to the table/floor in disbelief and despair and starts)
I know it sounds a bit far-fetched, but it's mthe only possibility I could think of
