When she says that she's prayin that she won't call cause it's just another call from home and he'll get it and be gone, tells me she is the other woman and finally gets the courage to stand up for herself in the end because she realized she deserves better than a man that won't leave his wife. Though I related this to my life when I was the wife being cheated on. Found my husband was living with another woman when we were seperated, telling me he was living with "Tom". We were still trying to work things out, seeing each other. When I found out he was living with her, I told him to listen to this song. That's how I ended it with him and filed for divorce that same day.
To me this song means- a woman and a man are soul mates and having an affair but he's married and won't leave his wife even though they are meant to be together. Then she tells him to stay with his wife even since him always gong back to her and it gets too hard. I think the moral is be careful who you fall in love with and love is hard and painful. Although they are not together and are not even having an affair it reminds me of Elliot and Olivia on Law and Order: Special Victims Unit because although they have never admitted their love and Elliot is married that is what their relationship is like- for me anyway.
I think of something totally different. My husband, who I have been married to for 4 years, has a mistress. We were high school lovers, everyone thought we would marry. We were always together, from the time we were barely 15 years old until the middle of our high school senior year. He always had this problem even back then, and now we are 48 years old. I knew better when I was a naive kid, and I walked away from him. He has the same mistress - it is his addiction to drugs and drinking. Twenty-five years later, I wanted to recapture that dream. I forgot to factor in the mistress and how I felt then and now. It has been hell and heaven rolled into these four years.

Well, seriously, like dr. Phil and every expert on the planet will tell you, if he cheats with you, he'll cheat on you. In my situation, the mistress thought she was his special side thing. What she didn't know (or care about), was that she was one of 5. I didn't findout about the others until years later if you're going to indulge a cheater, you deserve every ounce of anguish coming your way.
