  • Looks like we've been butting heads again, baby
    Lately seems like all we ever do
    Can't remember when things got so crazy
    All I know is I don't know what to do

    I guess we oughta stop and think it over
    Decide if what we want there's enough of
    It's tearing us apart, it cuts right through the heart
    It's an unintended consequence of love

    Remember how we fell into each other, baby
    Was all we could do to get up out of bed
    You used to say nobody loved you better
    I used to hang on every word you said

    What happened to those brave and tender lovers?
    How could we break the mighty promise of?
    I guess time wore us down, expectations run aground
    It's an unintended consequence of love

    Now baby, I'm the one that's taking chances
    I know we've got a love worth fighting for
    Let's drop them petty games and pick up dancing
    Get back to where we're wanting nothing more

    I'm calling on you, baby, now or never
    Let's dig in deep and get out of this rut
    We'll get back to what brought us both together, baby
    And find a way to resurrect our strut

    'Cause baby, you're my brave and tender lover
    I know we'll find the mighty promise of
    So come on, baby, back
    We'll get this love on track
    You're my one intended consequence of love
