1. You Cheated by Tanya

Why can’t you love me the way you should?
I know you could
Instead, my heartache is what you’re choosing.
It’s me that you are losing.
I hate what you’ve done to me.
I was all that you ever wanted me to be.
I’m not blind, I can see.
I see your game.
I’m not insane; you are hurting me.
After everything I have done for you,
Everything I gave you, you turn around and cheat?
All the times and memories we have spent together,
You even said we’d be forever.
The bond we share
I never thought you would dare,
Dare to hurt me this way.
All the lies you say,
You made me sick.
She is who you want to pick.
You made me cry while you told a lie,
You made me want to die.
How could this be, you’re not here with me?
You are not that man I thought you were.
Now I know, now I’m sure…”Never hurt you,”
Is what you said.
Now I know you’re not a man of your word.
Made me feel crazy when I asked, “Why was your phone off?”
Yet I knew you were hurting me.
I knew I was right; you were out of my sight.
You really ruined my life.
How could you ask me to forgive you?
How many times can I?
You have lost my trust over what I call lust.
You chose to hurt me; it was a must.
I am beautiful, so I have to be brave,
Brave enough to move on.
I will be strong without you.
My life won’t be wrong.
I will forget you in time,
And no, no it’s not fine.
I’m glad that you’re not mine.
You used to be my greatest treasure, but now you’re never.
I hope you’re happy for what you did to me.
Right now you’re blind, but soon you will see…

2. Betrayer by Névé

I can see the pain in your eyes,
it’s right there,
reminding me of what I’ve done.
I am the betrayer,
I put this hurt on you,
you never deserved to feel this way.
I don’t have any excuses,
I can’t say it was a mistake,
because I knew exactly what I was doing.
The regret I feel chokes me,
I have no words I can say,
nothing that can erase what I’ve done.
I wish you’d hate me,
I wish you’d turn away,
I wish you’d say you never want to see me again.
Because sitting here,
watching you accept this,
is killing me.
I know you deserve better,
I know that better should have been me,
but it wasn’t.
I can say I’m sorry,
but even though I mean it,
they’re just empty words.
No one likes a cheater,
no one should.

3. You cheat, I cry by Author Unknown

You betrayed me
Me and your mother
Thought we will marry
Never said I was happy…

You played me
You played me like a doll
All those girls were probably better
Plastic stays longer after all

And I’m dying
Dying like Tadashi
Building up the walls and burning inside them
Feeling burned out
Numbness a sibling

Days aren’t as fun anymore
Your ring still stuck on my finger
You knocked on my door,
I pretend to play death
Only I wished that was true…

4. Bring Your Cheating Heart To Me by David Ehrgott

Eye knows you take a pretty picture
Traveling around the world
Hopping on planes and floating on air
Well, get a little closer girl

I nose somethings in the air
or just my imagination again
So let this dream I have of you begin
And get yourself right here around my bend again

And bring your cheating heart to me
Let it love and let it breathe
Yes, bring your cheating heart to me
And end this bleeding teasing me
Bring your cheating heart to me

She knows what she does when she leaves, it’s a sin
She knows what she wants and it’s more than a grin
She’s got a love and he ain’t leaving
But, I’ve got something worth believing

Bring your cheating heart to me
Let it love and let me breathe
Bring your cheating heart to me
And end this bleeding teasing me
Bring your cheating heart to me

I’ll throw down dollars for your dime
Just give what I’m asking for, one good lightning time
If you can read this note I wrote for you
Then you should know just what to

So do it!

Bring your cheating heart right here to me
Let it love and let it breathe, leave the misery
And bring your loving cheating heart to me
End this bleeding teasing me
And bring your cheating heart right here to me

5. Pretty Angel by Author Unknown

How pretty she was
A fact no one denies
With the face of an angel
And sympathetic eyes
Her soft gentle mouth
Its true nature it belies
For beyond the facade
She was the devil in disguise

How deceiving she was
Behind the angels disguise
Hidden beneath a mask
Were calculating eyes
Her soft gentle mouth
Could speak only lies
And beyond the façade
Lay the angels demise

6. You Had Me Loving You by Author Unknown

You had me loving you from day one
And I had you loving me when it begun
But somewhere along the way
Your cheating heart decided to stray
You had me loving you totally
And I thought I had you loving me
But now your heart resides elsewhere
And you have left me in utter despair
You are still the one that I adore
But you don’t love me anymore
You still have me loving you totally
But I no longer have you loving me

7. Once A Cheater by Frank Valenti

Once a cheater always a cheater is the known phrase
But the latter is just as true and you’ll come to find out one of these days
I’ve said the same thing too many times
About those of whom that have committed adulterous crimes
Until the opportunity presented itself to me It was time for myself to see
When I fell in love with a second girl
It spun my emotions in a whirl
I took the low road and had my way with the new

I didn’t realize until half way through
That the guilt had gotten to me so severely
That I couldn’t finish and made me feel eerily
Strange feelings coursing through my veins
I rolled over and silently lain
Laying there for what seemed like forever waiting
Finally she got up and left leaving me hating
Myself for committing such horrendous atrocity

8. Player, Cheater, Hearthbreaker by Marcquiese Burrell

Reputations say a lot about a person
Friends warned me of you
Assumed it was just a normal case of uncertainty
When in truth…They know you’ve been messing around
But, you always seem to have a cover up story when asked
Convinced myself more then once that, ‘You’re not as bad
as people make you seem’. Why lie to myself?

Guess I just wanted to believe in you
Why should I when, You’re caught flirting with
other people while I’m present
Yet, you don’t feel in anyway you’re disrespecting me
Must you put your needs first?
On several occasions I’ve asked you to stop

Still, you continue to have your fun
While I’m left disappointed in the process
I sometimes get the impression that you tell me
what I want to hear and not what you really feel
Even though I care for you a lot, I have a hard time trusting you

9. Cheating And Lies by Meagen Deitz

Would you care if we quit talking?
Would you care if I went walking?
I need to know how you feel
So I know how to deal.
I like it when you’re by my side.
I hate it when you try to hide
All the cheating and the lies
Bring me one step closer to saying goodbye.
I know the cheating is a fact
because I’ve caught you in the act.

I wish I had more trust in you,
but it’s kinda hard when I busted you.
Seems to me you wouldn’t care
even if I weren’t there.
I always wonder who you’re with,
hoping it’s not another chick.
I’m not saying I don’t believe you.

Too many people have told me to leave you,
but you are everything to me,
which is why I want you me to always be.
Believing you may be a mistake,
but it’s a risk I’m willing to take.
I really love you; always know I do,
and remember there will always be a me and you.

10. It’s His Fault by Amanda Gray

Why do you beat yourself up
because you had the courage to love,
gave all of yourself in hopes that he was the one?

Why do you beat yourself up
when it was his choice to be unfaithful,
his choice to hurt you?

Why do you beat yourself up,
knowing that you had done everything for him,
supported him, comforted him,
loved him more than you loved yourself?

Why, after his lies and deceit,
do you still love him and want him to love you?
Why, after the repeat of hurt and trust being lost,
do you think that he deserves a love as pure as yours?

Why do you beat yourself up
over what you could have done better
when you know deep down there was nothing?

What makes you search for answers as to why
when they will not change the past
nor mend your broken heart?

Why, when a man decides to cheat, do we blame ourselves?
Why does it make us question every little detail about who we are,
make us think that we are not worthy of love?

Why, when a man cheats, do we still long for him to change,
realize how wrong he was, and fall in love with us again?

Why do you beat yourself up,
when you deserve more,
when all that you have done is loved someone completely?

Give yourself time, and the pain will subside,
and the mourning will cease.
You will see that you are still you,
still wonderful, beautiful you

Nothing has changed except your experience in love
and your determination to share love with another.

As you can never truly love someone
until you learn to love yourself.
