Now I lay me down to cheat
On the woman I love so
And if I die between these sheets
I pray to God she’ll never know

She’s the best thing in this life
Why she worships the ground that he walks on
She waits up for him at night and worries
Until he’s safely home
And she always believes his stories about overtime
And in 20 years beside him cheating never crossed her mind

Aw but it crossed his
Early last summer
In a person of a neighbor that she still calls her friend
And with a little push from drinking one too many one night in the fall he gave in
And now he wishes he could stop himself
But there’s no easy way
So he lays down with his lover
And silently he prays

Now I lay me down to cheat
On the woman I love so
And if I die between these sheets
I pray to God she’ll never know

In his heart and soul
He knew he was playing a game he could never win
But ya know, forbidden fruit is sweet
Why it was sweet enough to make him risk it all again
And now he’s giving up on looking for a way
To fight the feeling
So he prays this simple pray
And hope it makes it past the hotel ceiling

Now I lay me down to cheat
On the woman I love so
And if I die between these sheets
I pray to God she’ll never know

  1. my late husband was the love of my life, even though he “lived” this song. funny how these lyrics described a man you never knew. he was a hard working ironworker & the best father that I ever knew. Even though he cheated on me & I can count the times on 2 hands, I knew he loved me more than time can tell right to the end.
