It's 3 AM and I finally say
I'm sorry for acting that way
I didn't really mean to make you cry
Oh baby, sometimes I wonder why

[CHORUS]
Does it always have to come down
To you leaving
Before I'll say 'I love you'
Why do I always use the words
That cut the deepest
When I know how much it hurts you
Oh baby why, do I do that to you

I know I'd never let you walk away
So why do I push you 'til you break
And why are you always on the verge of good-bye
Before I'll show you how I really feel inside

[CHORUS]
Does it always have to come down
To you leaving
Before I'll say 'I love you'
Why do I always use the words
That cut the deepest
When I know how much it hurts you
Oh baby why, do I do that to you

Why do I always use the words that cut the deepest
When I know how much it hurts you
Oh baby why, do I do that to you
Why do I do that to you

    It means that he treats her badly and he knows how to get under skin however, when she is on the verge of leaving he wants to do everything he can to keep her around. That's why he tells her he loves her when she is so close to leaving him.

    He cannot control himself and is full of anger and unleashes it out on her. He then regrets it and sees how much he hurts her and a light bulb goes off in his head on what exactly he is doing. However, he is on a roller coaster and cannot get off because he just keeps doing it over and over again.

    i think it means a guy always tells his girl some bad things and then regrets sayin' it in the end, but he still loves her.
