Ain't it just like one of us
To pick up the phone
And call after a couple of
And say,
"How you been?
I been wonderin'
That maybe you've been thinkin' 'bout me."
And somewhere in the conversation,
An old familiar invitation always arrives,
An' I may hate myself in the morning,
But I'm gonna love you tonight.

Everyone's known someone
That they just can't help but want,
And even though we just can't make it work out,
Well the want-to lingers on.
So once again we wind up in each other's arms,
Pretending that it's right,
An' I may hate myself in the morning,
But I'm gonna love you tonight.

I know it's wrong,
But it ain't easy moving on.
So why can't two friends remember the good times once again?

Tomorrow when I wake up,
I'll be feeling a little guilty, an' a little sad,
Thinkin' how it used to be before everything went bad.
An' I guess that's what it is,
In lonely late night calls like this, that we try to find
An' I may hate myself in the morning,
But I'm gonna love you tonight.

I may hate myself in the morning,
But I'm gonna love you tonight.

    General CommentThis song is self explanitory - I enjoy it 'cause it is so true -we've all done it. call our ex and hook up, all the while knowing it will be wrong once it is done, but in the moment it feels right.

    General Commenti just heard this song like 20 mins ago. and it is a really nice song. i think just about everyone that has been in love can relate to it.

    General CommentWow..I have done this with one particular person and the line, "And even though they just can't make it work out, well the WANT TO lingers on." is soooo true. I sure wish we could have worked it out because he is someone I wanted it to be "forever" with.

    General CommentSSSOOOOOOOO true. All of it. Me and my ex went through this and are still feeling the after-math of it. Trust me- When you break up with ur boyfriend or girlfriend....dont choose to stay BEST FRIENDS until you get your life back on track...

    General CommentThis is a great song. I really like it. It's just about a woman who keeps going back to her ex, even though they don't belong together. Very country song.
