"Faithful" as written by Mark Johnson, Dustin Stroud, David Keel and Clint Baker....
My daddy made no excuse
I believe my lies are truth
Why won't you eat what you are fed
When I touch myself I think of only you
And when I touch someone else

No one is faithful I am weak
I go astray
Forgive me for my ways

I hear voices and I can't stand to be alone
â??Cause emptiness is all I have ever known
Soiled by my lust I feel no shame
No longer forsaken when they call my name
Beautiful angels come to my bed
I am satisfied on their flesh I have fed

No one is faithful I am weak
I go astray
Forgive me for my ways

    General CommentI think, no I am sure, this is my all time favorite song. The words, piano, guitar...all come together perfectly. I am in awe every time I listen to it.

    But on to the song meaning...

    The first verse seems to be saying that she is used to cheating, its something she has grown up with and she has continued the family tradition. Her lover is the only one she really loves everyone else is well there for her pleasure but nothing else.

    The second verse is trying to explain why she cheats, out of fear of being alone or forgotten. I wonder if the line "I am satisfied on the flesh I have fed" means that is enough for her as in she doesn't need a real relationship or if it means she is only satisfied for the moment.

    And then the guitar and piano take over to help articulate any remorse that she left out of the verses.

    Love it!

    My Interpretation*She is explaining to her partner why she is "Unfaithful" and asking her partner for forgiveness.

    She was influenced by her father. Her father made no excuses for his "cheating" ways.

    Apparently, she's been lying to her partner, and want her partner to believe her. (accept her lies b/c she accepts her lies as the truth). She is pleading for her partner to believe her... (Why won't you eat what you are fed).

    She sexual desires her partner (When I touch myself I think of only you) but she is not faithful to her partner. She continues to justify her cheating by saying no one is faithful.

    Loneliness triggers her temptation for lust and she gives in by cheating on her partner.
    The angels represent the opportunity to for her to stop cheating but she ignores them b/c she is to far gone with lust. Giving into lust is how she deals with her emptiness.

    She repeats this cheating cycle over and over again; she feels no shame.

    She is seeking her partner to forgive her (forgive me for my ways).
