How can we be lovers if we can't be friends?
How can we start over when the fighting never ends?
Baby, how can we make love if we can't make amends?
How can we be lovers if we can't be, can't be friends?

Look at us now, look at us, baby
Still tryin' to work it out never get it right
We must be fools, we must be crazy
Whoa, Whoa, when there's no communication
Whoa, whoa, it's a no win situation

How can we be lovers if we can't be friends?
How can we start over when the fighting never ends?
Baby, how can we make love if we can't make amends?
Tell me how can we be lovers if can't be friends?

We lie awake, this wall between us
We're just not talkin', we got so much to say
Let's break these chains, our love can free us
Whoa, whoa, ain't it time we started trying
Whoa, whoa, gotta stop this love from dying

How can we be lovers if we can't be friends?
How can we start over when the fighting never ends?
Baby, how can we make love if we can't make amends?
Tell me how can we be lovers if can't be friends?

Baby, love is tough but we can make it
Baby, times are rough but we can make it
We can work it out

How can we be lovers if we can't be friends?
How can we start over if the fighting never ends?
Baby, how can we make love if we can't make amends?
Tell me how can we be lovers if can't be, can't be friends?

How can we be lovers if we can't be friends?
How can we start over if the fighting never ends?
Baby, how can we make love if we can't make amends?
Tell me how can we be lovers if can't be, can't be friends?
