Where did we go wrong? Is it really over?
Where does my heart belong, if it's not with you?
We held on to our pride when we left each other
But what good is pride tonight when we're all alone

Why did we give up on us so fast?
Isn't love supposed to last forever?

Oh, what were we thinking of?
Looking for something better
Reaching for more than love
What were we thinking of?

Too late we both discovered
We're lost without each other
What were we thinking of?

Tonight I stay awake wanting just to call you
Knowing my heart would break if you were not home
So, I never call and you will never answer
You know the saddest part of all is I know you're there

Why do we run from the arms of love
When we really need each other more than ever

Oh, what were we thinking of?
Looking for something better
Reaching for more than love
What were we thinking of?

Too late we both discovered
We're lost without each other
What were we thinking of?

Oh, both of us thought we'd find true love with another
Why were we so blind it was right here all the time

What were we thinking of?
Looking for something better
Reaching for more than love
What were we thinking of?

Too late we both discovered
We're lost without each other, no
What were we thinking of?

What were we thinking of?
Looking for something better
What were we thinking of?
What were we thinking of?

Ooh what were we thinking of?
What were we thinking of?
Reaching for more than love
What were we thinking of?
