We know you really only want to hear
The things we like to say
But if I said to you please don't do it
You do it anyway
Sometimes I know, we gotta be cruel
Be cruel to be kind
When I ask you, what you see in me
You say our love is blind

'Cause only you know and I know
The things we mean to say
Only you know and I know
The things we mean to say

Whenever I think I know you better
Better than I know myself
I open up and give you everything
Then you say, okay what else
And when I run away you always cry
You always over react
But I don't know if you know how you really feel
But you better know before I get back

'Cause only you know and I know
The things we mean to say
Only you know and I know
The things we mean to say

Just try to remember
Now I'm the one you love
You told me, ooh try to remember
I'm the one you're always thinking of
You told me, please try to remember
Before I walk away
Remember
It's not good enough telling me the way it was yesterday

'Cause only you know and I know
The things we mean to say
Only you know and I know
The things we mean to say

Only you know and I know
The things we mean to say, yes
Only you know and I know
The things we mean to say

Only you know and I know
