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

'Cause 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 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

'Cause 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 telling me the way it was yesterday

'Cause only you know and I know
Only you know and I know

Only you know and I know
The things we mean to say
Only you know and I know
The things we mean to say

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

Only you know and I know
The things we mean to say
Only you know and I know
The things we mean to say

Only you know and I know
Only you know and I know
Only you know and I know
