Here we go again,
Hurting each other for no reason
Wondering why we keep repeating
the same mistakes.
Seems the more we give,
The more we're disillusioned
Baby, what is it we're doin?
Are we so scared of give and take?
Ohh...

CHORUS:
Why do we always hurt the ones we love?
(Why?)
Just when it seems we've fin'lly made a breakthrough
Why can't we fly between the eagle and the dove?
Why do we always hurt the ones we love?

Sometimes it seems
like the silence is between us
Get deeper than the meanest words,
Feel colder than the night
Everytime I feel as though
I'd finally gonna leave
It seems as though I just
cant praise a girl
Without you in my life woh...

BRIDGE:
And when you cry, I feel as though the tears are falling
from my eyes
Why do we do this to each other?
There so much we should be proud of
So many dreams that we have shared
I'd hate to think that we're arriving
Without you standing here.

-INSTRUMENTAL-

Tell me why... do we hurt the ones we love? (Why?)
When we've fin'lly made a breakthrough
why can't we fly between the eagle and the dove?
Why do we always hurt the ones we love...ohh...

    I really don't know why we hurt the ones we love always...maybe because the more we love the more we get hurt...maybe....

    Because we are not perfect, and our concept of love is pefect. That's why when two people fall in love, being imperfect, they tend to hurt each other, more often than not.

    When we fall in love there are only 2 consequences its either you get hurt or you get love back. Once we love someone we do our own way to feel him / her how much we love them.

    Probably because we know in our hearts that those who love us would always understand. I do not think anyone who really loves would actually deliberately hurt another's feelings. If they do, then that's not love.
