Gloria Estefan: Cuts Both Ways

This morning I was listening to Gloria Estefan and I decided to post the lyrics of of “Cuts Both Ways,” a song I particularly like. You can find the lyrics and an interesting commentary and interpretation on Estefan and her music here:

Cuts both ways
Our love is like a knife
That cuts both ways
It’s driven deep into my heart each time
That I realise
How it cuts both ways
Can’t be together
Cannot live apart
We’re heading straight for a broken heart
But I can’t stop

`Cause I feel too much to let you go
I’m hurting you and it’s hard I know
To stay and fight for what we’ve got
Knowing it’ll never be good enough
`Cause you and I are dangerous
We want too much and life ain’t that way
Don’t ask me for more
Don’t be a fool
Haven’t we already broken every rule

It cuts both ways
We’re in too deep for sorry alibis
Can’t have regrets or even question why
We can’t say goodbye
Because it cuts both ways
No more illusions of the love we make
No sacrifice would ever be too great
If you would just stay
