I came home early to see you
Couldn't wait to hold you
I've been away for so long

But as I walked through the doorway
My heart was shattered
To find that your not alone

When will I break
Into pieces
It's your mistake
I finally see that
Everything I thought was you was a lie
Now you left love dying
It's in the arms of a stranger

The days just seem so much longer
Now that I'm without you
It never seems to get better

I'll try to hold it together
And I can't wait for
The day that you fade from my memory

When will I break
Into pieces
It's your mistake
I finally see that
Everything I thought was you was a lie
Now you left love dying
It's in the arms of a stranger

In the arms of a stranger
In the arms of a stranger

When will I break
Into pieces
It's your mistake

Everything I thought was you was a lie
Now you left love dying
It's in the arms of a stranger

When will I break
Into pieces
It's your mistake
Everything I thought was you was a lie
Now you left love dying
It's in the arms of a stranger

When will I break
In the arms of a stranger
It's your mistake
Everything I thought was you was a lie
Now you left love dying
In the arms of a stranger

I came home early to see you
Couldn't wait to hold you
Your in the arms of a stranger

    He caught his wife cheating on him. I don't THINK it was a personal experience of Paul McCoy's... but I'm not sure.

    This song can be taken two different ways. One in the obvious of a guy coming home to his girl being unfaithful, and one of god coming home to his church unfaithful. We worship money, sex, drugs, jobs, our families, even the doctrine over our god, and he feels like we cheated on him.
