Unfaithful Lyrics

Story of my life searching for the right but it keeps avoiding me. Sorrow in my soul, but seems that wrong really loves my company. He's more than a man and this is more than love the reason that the sky is blue
The clouds are rolling in cause...

    What is more obvious than this song? :-)

    Its not controversial, puzzling, and it does not invite multiple interpretations (RiRi,my top favorite artist, is NOT Lady GaGa (my other queen of music!)

    The song? Its about a young woman who cheats on her husband constantly, and she knows he knows. He is just too sweet to either confront her or divorce, so he lets her destroy his spirit. Her regret and willingness to change is poured out in the song. She wants to be faithful to him once more. Does she? We never actually know. The music video isn't encouraging. It shows that she keeps "lying" (remember that both of them know that he knows she's cheating!) to him.

    Go RihannaNavy! (I adore her spunk, talent, and exotic Caribbean flair!)

    Thanks! :)

    I'm sorry but she's telling her lover she can't do this anymore cause she won't leave her husband ... the boyfriend is the one she's cheating on ... and every time she leaves him to go back home it's killing him ...

    We can obviously tell she's a prostitute, but we don't know the exact reason. We don't know whether she's a prostitute because her husband cant provide for her in bed. We never know the real reason. She wants to let him go, but she can't because she knows how much it'll hurt him so much more than physical pain, which is why she mentions about murder. She loves her husband, but she just can't stay loyal for idk what

    She is singing about her life as a prostitute, she goes often for late night out (both know where) and for some reason he still loves her. He must've been also not very good man, maybe drug dealer.or shepherd of sluts..and fell in love with her in ,,weird,,(for normal people) relationship.but they need Money

    Dropping this in 2021, but I just discovered that this song may be the same like Beyonce's if I were a boy. Like Rihanna is trying to tell people who cheat how it makes their spouses feel, and asking them to have a little conscience

    Just another cheater! Also, how vain is she to think he would end his life over potentially losing her? And what a cunt to not bother changing if it were the case?

    Sometimes you fall incredibly
    Deeply in love with a woman
    And even though you can smell
    Another man has been there,
    she looks you in the eyes
    And lies to your face,she has never looked sexier to you
    You just got to have her now.

    In this song with strong passionate lyrics, Rihanna describes herself as a murderer( meaning: she's causing him pain which is slowly killing him). In this tale, Rihanna flipped the table by showing that women can cheat too, its not only a habit for men. but, he's too sweet to confront her, although she's putting him through so much pain. But she cant bear to leave him either, that will put her through too much pain. Thanks for reading!

    In an interview for the same publication Rihanna said about the lyrics, "I'm referred to as a murderer in that song. Meaning, I'm taking this guy's life by hurting him, cheating on him. He knows, and it makes him feel so bad." She continued, "We always put it out there that guys cheat, and finally someone put it in perspective: girls cheat too."-wikipedia

    She is cheating and wants to be with her lover but doesnt want to hurt her boyfriend. She knows that she has to either end the relationship between her & lover or between her & her boyfriend because she knows she cant keep making the same mistake. She knows it is killing her boyfriend inside

    It's about Rihanna going out and "sleeping" with other men, and she already has a boyfriend, and he knows she sleeps around, and she knows it hurts him but she knows it'll hurt him more if they break up.

    This interpretation has been marked as poor. view anyway

    This song talks about life, lust and relationships. She can't stay faithful to the man and he knows that she sleeps around. She feels bad whenever she goes out to another. However, neither of them can seem to break the relationship off with each other. So they're stuck between lines of lies and life.

    well, I think she feels bad that she is cheating on her lover because she has a hinch he somehow no's, she hates the fact shes seeing another man and is letting her lover suffer but she cant stand the thought of ending the relationship.
