  • You hurt sometimes and sometimes you hurt me
    Then I defend words I don't mean
    We sit in silence
    And you start crying
    In all my pride I never wipe your tears
    That's when you call me insincere
    You leave me broken
    But I'm not hopeless
    Because I know that you'll always be my woman
    And I admit that I've been wrong
    So baby, what are we fighting for?
    I've run out of ways to say that I'm so sorry
    It's never too late, so let's start over
    Are we crazy?
    For falling back in love?
    Or can I hold you close tonight?
    I can sing your favorite song
    You know the one by Billy Joel
    I swear my dear, you'd kill me with a sigh
    You'd never mean to; you're too kind
    We all have reasons. Hell, I've got my own demons
    You're the only one who sees my million dreams
    Stays by my side when I can't breathe
    That's why it's painful when we act so resentful
    Oh, but you know that you'll always be my woman
    And I'll be your man until I die
    So baby, what are we fighting for?
    I've run out of ways to say that I'm so sorry
    It's never too late, so let's start over
    Are we crazy? For falling back in love?
    Or can I hold you close tonight?
    I can sing your favorite song
    You know the one by Billy Joel
    We're just people and people make mistakes
    I know it's harder to forgive when you're still in pain
    Oh, but I'll never -
    I never wanna make you change
    Remember, I'm always on your side
    No matter who's right, let's find a way
    Oh, I say, "baby - what are we fighting for?"
    I've run out of ways to say that I'm so sorry
    It's never too late, so let's start over
    Are we crazy? For falling back in love?
    Or can I hold you close tonight?
    I can sing your favorite song
