My intentions are good, my hearts in the right place now
You see I wanna be good to you, baby but sometimes I just don't know how
And the hand of fate, reaches out once more
And pulls me though that gate, like one hundred times before

Ooh, there are the nights, when things just work out right
No one could be as close as you and me
Then it all breaks down and we can't find that common ground
That's not the way, the way it oughta be, baby, oh, oh

Why do we laugh, why do we cry? Why do we feel this pain inside?
Only heaven knows, only heaven knows
In this game of hit and miss, how long can we go on like this?
Only heaven knows, only heaven knows

But if we threw it all away, it's something we'd regret someday
Oh, heaven knows
Why do we do these foolish things?
Only heaven knows

My intentions are good, my actions are hard to explain
I get misunderstood sometimes, there's nobody but me to blame
I've gotta speak my mind and deal with the situation
Open the lines, the lines of communication

Ooh there are the nights, we really get it right
Makin' love, endlessly
And then there are the days, we go our separate ways
As though there's nothin' left of you and me, baby, oh no
Nothin' left of you and me

Why do we laugh, why do we cry? Why do we feel this pain inside?
Only heaven knows, only heaven knows
In this game of hit and miss, how long can we go on like this?
Only heaven knows, only heaven knows

But if we threw it all away, it's something we'd regret someday
Oh, heaven knows

Why do we laugh, why do we cry?
Only heaven knows, only heaven knows
Why do we feel this pain inside?
Only heaven knows, only heaven knows

But if we threw it all away, it's something we'd regret someday, oh
Why do we do these foolish things?
Only heaven knows, only heaven knows

You see, I wanna be good to you, baby
Heaven knows
Why do we feel this pain inside?
You see I wanna be good to you, baby
Heaven knows, oh yeah
Heaven knows, heaven knows
