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
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
