Poison Lovers Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

I was almost out of here
I nearly left this time
I saw you in my rear view mirror
And I pulled up on a dime
But nothin' ventured, nothin' lost
You can't say we didn't try
That is unless you weigh the cost
Of every tear we cried

But why do we do this to each other
I guess we were always poison lovers

If you could look me in the eye
And tell me what you see
Maybe you can tell me why
I let you torture me
I know that your lips are soft
And they sing the sweetest songs
But I've been listenin' long enough
My heart has turned to stone

Why do we do this to each other
Yes we were always poison lovers

Another time, another place
Another wind to blame
I'll cover every track and trace
I'll find you just the same
And even if we made our peace
And went our separate ways
You'd go west and I'd go east
And we'd meet here in this place

Why do we do this to each other
Yes we were always poison lovers

Why do we do this to each other
Yes we were always poison lovers
