"If She Would Have Been Faithful" as written by Stephen Alan Kipner and Randy Goodrum....
I was thinking about her, visiting the past
Reconstructing details with old photographs
I was studying the faces with an objective point of view
Suddenly remembering doesn't haunt me
I'll follow the sun
And now the time has come, and so, my love, I must go
And though I lose a friend, in the end you will know oh
One day you'll find that I have gone
But tomorrow might rain so I'll follow the sun
All the time you couldn't tell me that one day I'd be glad
That something that I thought was love was misinterpreted

But they were doing me a favor, a blessing in disguise
If she would've been faithful, if she could have been true
Then I would've been cheated, I would never know real love
I would've missed out on you
I watch you sleeping, your body touching me
There's no doubt about it, this is where I want to be
You know it's so ironic, I had to lose to win
I want to thank her, if she would've been faithful
If she could have been true
Then I would've been cheated, I would never know real love
I would've missed out on you
It's a paradox full of contradiction, how I got from there to here
It defies a logical explanation
If she would've been faithful, if she could have been true
Then I would've been cheated, I would never know real love
I would've missed out on you
If she would've been faithful, if she could have been true
Then I would've been cheated, I would never know real love
I would've missed out on you

    General CommentI love this song! It sounds great, but the lyrics are insane. It's like someone wrote lyrics with a thesaurus. Its a paradox full of contradictions? Yeah, that's a paradox all right. It does defy a logical explanation. But that's what makes it great!

    General CommentObviously, this song is saying that if his ex-love hadn't cheated on him, he wouldn't have found his new long. "I had to lose to win" -- it was probably really hard to lose the other woman, but now he's glad cause if he hadn't ever lost, he wouldn't have won with the woman he's with now, who apparently is MUCH better than the last girl.

    General CommentDP, you are SO right... I remember hearing this song when I was 11 and wondering why they tried to hard to force such big words into the song, it makes it so ridiculous!!
