A sad country song

"There’s a Bible on the dresser and a sign hung on the door and a woman in my arms who shouldn’t be. I’m to the point of no returning but I’ve been here before, this cheating life is nothing new to me. There’s someone to be considered so I call her on the phone and say the job is taking longer than I planned. I don’t have the heart to tell her that a stranger’s turned me on and I’m headed for the boken promise land.

Tonight, I’m crossing over and I’ll reach the cheating side and I’ll hate myself for coming here again. Where the streets are paved with misery and lives are built on lies... A place they call the broken promise land."
