"Infidelity" as written by and Martin Kent Deborah Ann Dyer....
Lost infidelity
We've never said a word
So black, and white you see
It's all the lies we've heard

In my mind nothing makes sense
I'm nothing you can't have
Cracked up to disagree
It's all we've ever had

You, only you, only you
Only you can't be the one
Only you, only you
Only you can't be the one

Your secret smile so quaint
In memories foretold
Laughing so viciously
Your conscience has been sold

In my face there's no more joy
I'm all that I should be, be, be
Cracked infidelity
That's all you are too me

You, only you, only you
Only you can't be the one
Only you, only you
Only you can't be the one
Be the one
Be the one
Be the one
Oh

We don't talk anymore
We don't talk anymore
We don't care anymore
We don't care

You, only you, only you
Only you can't be the one
Only you, only you
Only you can't be the one
Only you, only you
Only you can't be the one
Only you, only you
Only you can't be the one

    General CommentSeems to me to be about that stage in a relationship, when it is just about to fall apart. 'They' haven't talked in a while, and all communication / trust / love as disintegrated. She seems to be just waiting for the end to come.

    General Commenthmm.. i see it as the description of an impossible relationship. it isn't approved by the outside world, and the you-person is indoctrinated ('so black and white you see, it's all the lies you've heard', 'you're conscience has been sold'). because skin is a lesbian, i suppose it'a a lesbian relationship she's talking about. if you read it this way, it makes sense, doesn't it?

    the i-character and you-character are lesbian, and can't have a relationship because it isn't although they

    General CommentMapleLeaf, I think you're right half the way, but isn't it more like she offers herself to the other girl who doesn't want her. Perhaps because she's raised to be straight?
