When I ask those questions, baby
It's just to get them out of my head
Cause they turn around inside it
Then they spill off to our bed
Do I really want to know?
Do I really want to know your life?
Would I have to let you go?
Could I listen to my heart if my head stops to think twice?

When I've been a good boy
When I've been a bad boy
I have too much fun
But baby so did everyone
I've never been an angel
But things are gonna change, change, change
So do you really want to know?
Do you really want to know my life?
Would you have to let me go?
Could you listen to your heart if your head stopped to think twice?

If you knew every woman
And I knew every man
We never would have made it past holding hands
I guess the saying is no longer true
That what you don't know can hurt you
I guess there is just no question, baby
You know what you're doing in bed
If I want your touch
Should I know too much
Some things are better left unsaid
So do I really want to know?
Do I really want to know your life?
Would I have to let you go?
Could I listen to my heart if my head starts to think twice?

(Tell me baby, Cause one thing to guess is one thing to know,
And don't you think that maybe baby I've got secrets of my own?)

If I knew every woman
And you knew every man
We never would have made it past holding hands
I used to say it but it's no longer true
Cause what you don't know can really hurt you (Can kill you baby)

And even as we speak
The world is full of lovers
Night after night, week after week
Trusting to luck and a pocket full of rubbers
