Is it cheating if I call you sweetheart?
Is it cheating if you call me your man?
I’m retrieving wayward glances from your wandering eye,
And pretending not to know you’re there.

I imagine the sound of your voice
I imagine the smell of your skin
I imagine me with you, the way that he is
And wonder how it would have been

In the morning the tears on my pillow
Will dry in the sun in my room
And they’ll go off to heaven, but I’ll stay down here
Far from you as the Earth and the moon

Is it cheating if I call you sweetheart?
Is it cheating if you call me your man?
I’m receiving wayward glances with my wandering eye,
And pretending not to know you care.

Many years go by while we keep blinking eyes
Making promises, keeping a few
Try to call, Try to write
But that one single night was the one night I could have had you

Come dance beside me
Grab your partner and I’ll grab mine
Hold him close there in your sweet arms
But think of me darling tonight

With this ring on my finger I was promised away
With this ring I was chained to a cell
So I sing of a sweetheart gone so many yesterdays
So I sing through this singular hell.

Is it cheating if I call you sweetheart?
Is it cheating if you call me your man?
I’m retrieving wayward glances from your wandering eye,
Pretending not to know you’re there.

Yeah I’m retrieving wayward glances with my wandering eye,
And pretending not to know you care.
