Help please with definitions or connotations or somesuch, eh?

The song "Faithful" by Eric Andersen has the following chorus:

You said lovin' you and leavin' you's
The hardest thing to do
To give my foot another chance
To try another shoe
But ever time I see someone
I'm always seeing you
Though I have not always been faithful
I always have been true

My question is: What is the distinction between "faithful" and "true"?

Can anybody help me out here? I'm sure those last two lines mean something, but I've just never been able to put my finger on it. I'd like to, because it's a beautiful tune, but I just can't. I do so like to understand things…

Thanking you in advance,
Da Fredcritter
