We know you 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 just say, "Okay what else?"

And when I run away you always cry
You always over-react
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

Just try to remember
Now I'm the one you love
You told me, ooh try to remember
I'm the one you're always thinking of

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

Yes, only you know and I know
Things we mean to say
Only you know and I know
Things we mean to say

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