You know we really only wanna 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"

'Cos 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
Better than I know myself
I open up and give you everything
Then you, you say, "Okay, what else?"
And when I run away, you always cry
You always overreact
But I don't know if you know how you really feel
But you better know before I get back

'Cos only you know and I know
The things we mean to say
Only you know and I know
The things we mean to say

You told me
You told me
Please try to remember
Before I walk away
Remember
It's not good enough tellin' me the way it was yesterday

'Cos only you know and I know
You know and I know
You know and I know
The things we mean to say
You know and I know
The things we mean to say

Don't you know?
You gotta be cool
Will you cool behind?
And I asked her
"What you see in me?"
Only love in your eyes

You know and I know
The things we mean to say, oh
Only you know and I know
Only you know and I know
Only you know and I know
...
