  • Whoever said that love is easy, must've never been in love,
    Sometimes its a landmine, one wrong step and it blows up,
    A word, a look, lights a hidden fuse.

    It's hard to see just what you have, when you're seeing red,
    And easy to do something that you know you will regret,
    Better stop, think, count to ten before I leave.

    One, I still wanna hate you,
    Two, three, I still wanna leave,
    Four, searching for that door,
    Five, then I look into your eyes,
    Six, take a deep breathe,
    Seven, take a step back,
    Eight, nine, I don't know why we even started this fight,
    By the time I get to ten, I'm right back in your arms again.

    Words thrown so callously like weapons when we fight,
    But when they cut too deep, I wanna leave it all behind,
    I have to count to ten, before I cross that line.

    One, I still wanna hate you,
    Two, three, I still wanna leave,
    Four, I'm searching for that door,
    Five, then I look into your eyes,
    Six, take a deep breathe,
    Seven, take a step back,
    Eight, nine, I don't know why, we even started this fight,
    By the time I get to ten, I'm right back in your arms again.

    You can lose what you're not thankful for,
    I don't want that to happen to you and me,
    Better count my blessings.

    One, you still move me,
    Two, three, you send chills right through me,
    Four, you keep me wanting more,
    Five, when I look into your eye,
    Six, you're my best friend,
    Seven, that'll never end,
    Eight, nine, I don't know why, but thank God it happens every time,
    By the time I get to ten,
    By the time I get to ten,
    I can see how blessed I've been.

    I choose you all over again. Writer/s: DAVE BERG, JEWEL KILCHER
