Drivin' home this evenin'
Coulda sworn we had it all worked out
You had this boy believin'
Way beyond a shadow of a doubt

Then I heard it on the street
I heard you might have found somebody new, yeah
Well who is he baby
Who is he and tell me what he means to you, oh yeah

I took it for granted
But how was I to know
That you'd be lettin' go

[Chorus]
Now it cuts like a knife
But it feels so right
It cuts like a knife
Oh but it feels so right

There's times I've been mistaken
There's times I've thought I've been misunderstood
So wait a minute darlin'
Can't you see we did the best we could, oo we could

This wouldn't be the first time
That things have gone astray
Now you've thrown it all away

Now it cuts like a knife
Yeah but it feels so right
Oh it cuts like a knife
Yeah but it feels so right
Oh it cuts like a knife
But it feels so right, baby
(Na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na,na)
Oh it cuts like a knife, yeah

I took it all for granted
But how was I to know
That you'd be lettin' go
Now it cuts' like a knife
Yeah but it feels so right
Now it cuts like a knife
Yeah but it feels so right
(Na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na,na)
Oh it cuts like a knife
(Na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na,na)
But it feels so right
(Na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na,na)
Oh yeah
Cuts like a knife
Now give it to me now
(Na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na,na)
Yeah, yeah
Come one boys
Yeah
(Na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na,na)
Cuts like a knife, yeah, yeah
(Na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na,na)
Yeah, now it cuts like a knife, now
(Na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na,na)
Feels so right, yeah yeah
Feels so right, baby
(Na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na,na)
Now, now, feels so right
Now it cuts like a knife
(Na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na,na)
Yeah, feels so right
