Oh
Mm oh
Oh yeah

How come sometimes we go so well 2gether
And then other times we go apart?
How can U find a way 2 make it better
When there's this pain so deep n my heart?
I dont know

Loving U only brings me pain
Whenever I'm with U
Thru it and all others U remain
And I, oh I don't know what I should do

Our love has never been a bed of roses
Our personalities always clash
Thru all the tears and such and temperamental poses
Ur kisses say our love will last
Why? I don't know

Loving U only brings me pain
Whenever I'm with U
Thru it and all others U remain
I, oh I don't know what I should do

I know sometimes the sea's really stormy
But by now U must know that I am strong
And even though sometimes U might less than adore me
Somehow I know we must go on

I liken our love 2 a gentle fire
If I get 2 close then I'll get burned
But just close enough and I'll b warm as a little baby
How come U just can't give me what I earn?
I don't know

Loving U only brings me pain
Whenever I'm with U
Thru it and all others U remain
And I, oh I, oh I don't know what I should do

Loving U only brings me pain
Our love, our love is like a gentle fire
Thru it and all others U remain (Here we go)
2 a person I just might get burned by my desire
Mmm
Oh
All the smoke is gone and clear
Can it b U'll still b here?
Ow!
