sometimes when I lose my head
I can't make sense of what you said
but you don't mean it
or that's what you say
all the conversation seems to slip away

oh maybe you can say it better (you can say it better...better)
I can listen
people do it all the time, baby
we can make it better (we can make it better)
cause mincing words (mincing words) will never rhyme
they never rhyme

same excuses that go round and round
push them up just to knock them down
confuse the issue to shift the blame
and lose the picture like a puzzle game

you never notice if you're right or wrong (right or wrong)
it becomes a contest of the weak and the strong
(weak and the strong, baby)
there is no reason for you to pick a fight (no, no)
when we lose heart its time to shut out the light

mmmm hmmm

oh maybe you can say it better
(you can say it better...better)
I can listen
people do it all the time, baby
we can make it better (we can make it better)
cause mincing words (cause mincing words)
Will never rhyme
baby never rhyme
will never rhyme
