Stay, by Sugarland

A Powerful Cheating Song from the Mistresses Perspective

The song is not written from the perspective of the wife, but rather from the point of view of his mistress.

It begins with the Mistress singing about how she hates when his phone rings ...(lyrics) 'I've been laying here praying she won't call', because it's probably a call from home that will take him away from her...again.

She sings about how hard it is to love a man she has to share, and throughout the song asks him, 'baby why don't you stay'. However, the lyrics are actually a play on the words 'why don't you stay'. She begins to grow stronger, and by the end she's getting herself together and her confidence back...she then tells him that the next time he finds that he wants to leave her bed for hers...why don't you stay. 'I'm up off my knees, I'm so tired of being lonely, you can't give me what I need' (lyrics).

If you've never heard 'Stay by Sugarland', you have to take a few minutes out of your day to listen to it. It's also played acoustically, making it hauntingly beautiful.

...(lyrics) so the next time you find you wanna leave her bed for mine, why don't you stay...

(Lyrics) 'I Can't take it any longer, but my will is getting stronger, and I think I know just what I have to do'...

Enjoy The Ride

You'll find 'Stay' on Sugarland's album "Enjoy the Ride" - There are 11 terrific songs on this album including, Settlin and Want To. It was released in November 2006, and by 2007 had reached platinum status.

The Thunder Rolls, by Garth Brooks

(Lyrics) ...She's waitin' by the window when he pulls into the drive...

Pure story telling genius in this song! Unfortunately the actual video for the song isn't on Youtube, so I've included an alternative video below featuring the song lyrics. If you haven't seen the official video for this magnificent Garth Brook's song, it essentially tells the story of the lyrics in a mini-movie format.

The husband in these lyrics is a full on cheat, and the official video begins with him in bed with his mistress ... she wants him to stay, but he informs her 'he's a family man' (ha!!) - The scene then switches to his wife across town pacing the floor in her faded flannel gown...All of this unfolds during a symbolic thunderstorm ....

When the cheating husband pulls in the drive, she's glad to see him, thankful he's alive...but that sentiment ends quickly when she 'smells the other woman on him' ....It doesn't end happily, as she goes for her gun to commit a crime of passion!

Before He Cheats, by Carrie Underwood

The Classic 'Get Even' Cheating Country Song!

Oh she had enough of him...she dug her key into the side of his pretty little souped up 4 wheel drive, carved her name into his leather seats (lyrics)! This gal isn't taking him's over, with a big 'O' !

Before He Cheats has become an anthem for women who've found themselves in this song! Not sure how many have taken their anger out on his 'pretty little souped up four wheel drive' but I'm sure there's a few who would like to!

She's talking trash about the 'bleached blonde tramp' he's probably slow dancing with...and while he's shooting combos and she's sipping back a fruity little drink, the woman scorned took a Louisville slugger to both headlights,

slashed a hole in all 4 tires...(lyrics). Karma is a beyatch, and she's it's evil twin!

Look out boys, don't cheat on this type!...actually, safer just not to cheat at all!

You'll Find 'Before He Cheats' on Carrie Underwood's Album, 'Some Hearts'

Some Hearts

This is one of Carrie Underwood's best albums. It features 14 terrific songs including Before He Cheats, Wasted, Don't Forget to Remember Me, and Lessons Learned.

You'll Think of Me, by Keith Urban

A Song for the Heartbroken Men ....She's in Someone Else's Arms Now....

More than a cheating song, this is a song of heartbreak. She's in someone else's arms now and he sounds like he's trying to convince himself that one day 'she'll think of him'. Truth is, she probably will.

If you need a song about heartbreak from a breakup, that doesn't center on revenge and sarcasm, then this is your go-to tune. For the men who've had their hearts busted wide open because she's left him for another person, then again, these are the lyrics that emotionally describe the pain.

It's hard to imagine Keith Urban being left in a lurch, but certainly when he sings this, the listener almost feels sorry for him (But we know he's happily married of course!). Since it's quite somber, the song may be difficult to listen to if you're in an emotional pinch.

(Lyrics) '..Ever since you found yourself in someone else's arms I've been tryin' my best to get along...'
