Story of my life,
Searching for the right,
But it keeps avoiding me.
Sorrow in my soul,
Because it seems that wrong,
Really loves my company.

He's more than a man,
And this is more than love,
The reason that the sky is blue.
The clouds are rolling in,
Because I'm gone again,
And to him I just can't be true.

And I know that he knows I'm unfaithful,
And it kills him inside,
To know that I am happy,
With some other guy.
I can see him dying.

I don't wanna do this anymore,
I don't wanna be the reason why,
Everytime I walk out the door,
I see him die a little more inside.
I don't wanna hurt him anymore,
I don't wanna take away his life.
I don't wanna be...
A murderer.

I feel it in the air,
As I'm doing my hair,
Preparing for another date.
A kiss upon my cheek,
As he reluctantly,
Asks if I'm gonna be out late.
I say I won't be long,
Just hanging with the girls,
A lie I didn't have to tell.
Because we both know,
Where I'm about to go,
And we know it very well.

'Cause I know that he knows I'm unfaithful,
And it kills him inside,
To know that I am happy,
With some other guy.
I can see him dying.

I don't wanna do this anymore,
I don't wanna be the reason why,
Everytime I walk out the door,
I see him die a little more inside.
I don't wanna hurt him anymore,
I don't wanna take away his life.
I don't wanna be...
A murderer.

Our love,
His trust,
I might as well take a gun and put it to his head,
Get it over with.
I don't wanna do this,
Anymore, ooooooh, anymore.

I don't wanna do this anymore,
I don't wanna be the reason why,
And everytime I walk out the door,
I see him die a little more inside
I don't wanna hurt him anymore,
I don't wanna take away his life.
I don't wanna be...
A murderer.

Oooh.
A murderer.
No, no, no.
Yeah, yeah, yeah.

    She has an honest boyfriend but she is the one who is unfaithful to him. She goes to dates with the other guy and tell him that she will hang out with her friends. She also knows that eventhough he knows she doesn't go with her friends, he pretends like he doesn't know it and lets her go. And these things kills him bit by bit and she feels like she is a murderer.

    I had a boyfriend before. He really loves me but I don't know why I can't love him back. I was not able to broke him up 'coz I know that he will be hurt but time comes that my conscience bother me for many times, so even if it hurts to say "I will set you.I did'nt deserve your love", I have to say it. I know that being unfaithful as pretending that you can love him back is more hurting than being honest as telling him the truth that you can't love him in return. . Yes its hurts! But we have to accept.

    Ang sakit ng katotohanan tlaga. We all have faults, mistakes and it's all because of maling akala. We thought we cud find what we'are looking for with some others, but at the far end, the one we left at home is really the one that we wish to have for the rest of our lives. Usually, we didn't realized everything until huli na ang lahat. And doon, regrets will come. Therefore, we should value the one we have ryt now before it's too late!

    The piano-driven ballad is about a woman who is in a relationship with a man, but is having an affair. "I'm referred to as a murderer in that song. Meaning, I'm taking this guy's life by hurting him, cheating on him. He knows, and it makes him feel so bad. It's killing him to know that another guy is making me happy…we always put it out there that guys cheat. And finally someone put it in perspective: Girls cheat too." [3] Rihanna said on an August 26, 2006 review that "Unfaithful" was birthed out of a relationship she outgrew when she was fourteen. She was quick to add though that the relationship was not physical.[4] For radio airplay, the word "gun" (in the line "Might as well take a gun and put it to his head, get it over with") in the song is edited out.

    Been there. Done that! To be with some other guy for more fun and kilig moment lang but truth is games doesn't last long. Sometimes girls pa ang mas nasasaktan. (biliss ng Karma! Haha)
    at the end of the day, I still realize dun paren ako bumabalik sa taong.
    Totoong mahal ako. Strong feeling of guilt can kill you esp kung alam mo he's still gon love you no matter what!
