"Cuts Like A Knife" as written by Bryan Adams and James Vallance....
Drivin' home this evening
I coulda sworn we had it all worked out
You had this boy believin'
Way beyond the shadow of a doubt, yeah

Well I heard it on the street
I heard you mighta found somebody new, yeah
Well who is he baby, who is he
And tell me what he means to you, oh yeah

I took it all for granted
But how was I to know
That you'd be letting go

Now it cuts like a knife
But it feels so right
Yeah, it cuts like a knife
Oh, but it feels so right

There's times I've been mistaken
There's times I thought I'd been misunderstood, ooo yeah
So wait a minute darlin'
Can't you see we did the best we could, ooo we could

Wouldn't be the first time
That things have gone astray
Now you've thrown it all away

Now it cuts like a knife
Yeah but it feels so right
Oh it cuts like a knife
Yeah but it feels so right
Oh it's cut like a knife
But it feels so right, baby
Oh it cuts like a knife, yeah

I took it all for granted
But how was I to know
That you'd be letting go

Now it cuts like a knife
Yeah but it feels so right, mmm
Now it cuts like a knife
Yeah, but it feels so right

Yeah
Oh it cuts like a knife
Oh oh
But it feels so right, baby
Oh yeah
It cuts like a knife
Now give it to me now
Oh yeah, come on boys, awh
Cuts like a knife, yeah yeah yeah
Na, it cuts like a knife now
It feels so right, yeah yeah
It feels so right, baby
Na na yeah, it feels so right
And it cuts like a knife

    General CommentI think its about someone loving another person but the other person never really loves them back. The other person leads them on, but just like in the past, they hurt the other person. "It cuts like a knife but it feels so right" this to me is saying that it hurts, but the pain is so familiar that it almost feels right.

    General CommentI think this song is about someone loving someone, but them not loving them back, so they break up and even though it hurts its the right thing to do. Maybe, maybe not.
