Lyrics
Baby, I know pain is as natural as the rain
I just thought it didn't rain in California
Baby, I know love isn't what I thought it was
'Cause I've never known a love like this before ya

Baby, I know dreams tend to crumble at extremes
I just thought our dream would last a little bit longer
There's a time when every man draws a line down in the sand
We're surviving, we're still living, are we stronger?

You've been cheatin' on, cheatin' on me
I've been cheatin' on, cheatin' on you
You've been cheatin' on me
But I've been cheatin' through this life
And all its suffering
Oh Christ
Am I good for nothing?

Baby, I know hate is always waiting at the gate
I just thought we'd lock the gate when we left in the morning
When I was told that war is how we landed on these shores
I just thought the drums of war beat louder warnings

You've been cheatin' on, cheatin' on me
I've been cheatin' on, cheatin' on you
You've been cheatin' on me
But I've been cheatin' through this life
(Cheatin' on, cheatin' on me)
(I've been cheatin' on, cheatin' on you)
And all its suffering (cheatin' on me)
(I've been cheatin' through)
Oh Christ
(Cheatin' on, cheatin' on me)
(I've been cheatin' on, cheatin' on you)
Am I good for nothing? (cheatin' on me)
(I've been cheatin' through)

Baby, I know death probably hasn't happened yet
'Cause I don't remember living life before this
And, darling, our disease is the same one as the trees
Unaware that they've been living in a forest

You've been cheatin' on, cheatin' on me
I've been cheatin' on, cheatin' on you
You've been cheatin' on me
But I've been cheatin' through this life
(You've been cheatin' on, cheatin' on me)
(I've been cheatin' on, cheatin' on you)
And all its suffering (you've been cheatin' on me)
(I've been cheatin' through)
Oh Christ (you've been cheatin' on, cheatin' on me)
(I've been cheatin' on, cheatin' on you)
Am I good for nothing? (You've been cheatin' on me)
(I've been cheatin' through)

This life (you've been cheatin' on, cheatin' on me)
(I've been cheatin' on, cheatin' on you)
And all its suffering (you've been cheatin' on me)
(I've been cheatin' through)
Oh Christ (you've been cheatin' on, cheatin' on me)
(I've been cheatin' on, cheatin' on you)
Am I good for nothing?
