(pat bunch/doug crider)

I don't know why we act like that
You hurt me, I only hurt you back
I can't believe how carelessly we say those things
That put our love in danger

You wouldn't say that to a stranger we hurt the ones we love
When we say those words in anger, do we ever make it up
We say what we don't mean and then we say we're sorry later
But you wouldn't say that to a stranger

Last night there was over in the air
Today it's gone just like it was never there
And I don't know where those hateful words come from
It goes against our nature

You wouldn't say that to a stranger we hurt the ones we love
When we say those words in anger, do we ever make it up
We say what we don't mean and then we say we're sorry later
But you wouldn't say that to a stranger

Let's pretend that we just met
And we said nothing we regret

We say what we don't mean and then we say we're sorry later
But you wouldn't say that to a stranger
