Call me soon as your plane gets in
I'll tell you where to take the cab
Can't talk now in the middle of this crowd
But baby, I miss you so bad

I got a bottle of wine
Some stolen time
Key to a room where you can be all mine

Till it feels like cheating
Till it feels that good
Nobody's leaving
So let's get it understood
Oh you could be a stranger
It's been that long
There's something 'bout the danger of feeling like we're doing something wrong

Let's make the love that we needed
Till it feels like cheating

Don't say a word when you walk in
We ain't got time for that
Kiss me hard like we're about to sin
And there ain't no going back

For a while we'll be free, just you and me
Making promises life won't let us keep

Till it feels like cheating
Till it feels that good
Nobody's leaving
So let's get it understood
Oh you could be a stranger
It's been that long
There's something 'bout the danger of feeling like we're doing something wrong

Let's make the love that we needed
Till it feels like cheating

Keeping the spark going is an everyday fight
So I sent the kids to your mama
And baby, we got all night

Till it feels like cheating
Till it feels that good
Nobody's leaving
So let's get it understood
You could be a stranger
It's been that long
There's something 'bout the danger of feeling like we're doing something wrong

Let's make the love that we needed
Till it feels like cheating
Oh yeah, baby
Let's make the love that we needed
Till it feels like cheating

    I am the wife of a soldier and my husband has been gone for 5 months. This
    This song to me means exactly what i feel. "keeping the spark going is an everyday fight" "oh you could be a stranger it's been that long" this will be the song playing when i pick my soldier up! 18 year anniversary coming up and 4 children later. Yes, till it feels like cheating is my goal!

    So ... They're married and have kids but they have to pretend like they're "strangers" in order to keep the spark by acting like they're cheating ? That would just destroy the whole relationship for me and make me wonder about being cheated on. Some weird stuff float the boats of people.

    still, even with the twist toward the end, since when does cheating feeling good have a positive message? Lame lyrics to a great sounding song - I'm in the same position with my wife - but hell I want it to feel like shes been the single most fantastic love of my life that she has been, the one meant for me by fate, love, luck, whatever - the one I've experienced the best and worst with for years and years to come- not some crap about feeling like I'm cheating and making the excuse about life not letting us keep up and slack off the romance/excitement the rest of the time - ridiculous.
