"Cheated On Me" as written by and Gavin Degraw....
I'm love sick somewhere tonight
I'm love sick somewhere tonight

I don't need writing on the wall
I felt it for so long
Am I even on your mind
Or are you now in

[Chorus]
Someone else's eyes
Someone else's arms
Someone else's obvious moves
I'm a jealous guy
I hear people talk
And it isn't hard to believe
I think you cheated on me

I've been this love sick before
I've felt just like this before

There was another just like you
I loved her for so long
But I had poison on my mind
And I drove her into

[Chorus]

I've said I've had this stage before
But I left an open door
For this to walk into my life

And maybe I suspect too much
But this is hard for me to trust
When I'm all wound up inside
I just drive you often into

Someone else's eyes
Someone else's arms
Someone else's obvious moves
I'm a jealous guy
I hear people talk
And it isn't hard to believe
I was never easy to please
I think you cheated on me
You cheated on me
I think you cheated on me

    General CommentThis is a really deep song.
    You can tell by the heavy chords dragging in the beginning that he's "lovesick" -- it gives an idea of unrest.
    In the first verse he is just presenting the idea, that he knows she is unfaithful. He's putting it all on the table.

    The second verse I really love. I loved it the first time I heard it because I took it as a real self-defense mechanism that Gavin used.
    "I've been this lovesick before
    I've felt just like this before
    There was another just like you
    I loved it for so long"
    He is making sure she knows that she isn't the first one to break his heart, but he isn't trying to be emo about it, he's trying to assure her that just as he found a replacement for the last relationship he had, he can find a replacement for her. He is capable of doing it -- so to present the threat, it gives him a little power. It is kind of a typical male trait that I think is really interesting in the song.

    Perhaps in the bridge he is suggesting that he suspected her of cheating before, but he "left an open door" by not acting on it. He also doubts himself, because, remember - throughout the whole song he is merely pointing fingers, "i THINK you cheated on me"...he is never really blaming her, but presenting the idea so she can admit it herself. By the beginning of the song, til the end, he makes this transition from blaming her to blaming himself, "I drove you off and into someone else's arms".
