Carpenters – Hurting Each Other lyrics

No one in the world

Ever had a love as sweet as my love

For nowhere in the world

Could there be a boy as true as you love

All my love

I give gladly to you

All your love

You give gladly to me

Tell me why then

Oh why should it be that

(*) We go on hurting each other

We go on hurting each other

Making each other cry

Hurting each other

Without ever knowing why

Closer than the leaves

On a weepin' willow baby we are

Closer dear are we

Than the simple letters "A" and "B" are

All my life

I could love only you

All your life

You could love only me

Tell me why then

Oh why should it be that

Repeat (*)

(**) Can't we stop hurting each other

Gotta stop hurting each other

Making each other cry

Breaking each other's heart

Tearing each other apart

Repeat (**)
