We Really Shouldn't Be Doing This
by George Strait



We really shouldn't be doing this and we both know why.
Just being close enough to think like this, enough to make you need to lie.
This kinda talk will lead us to somewhere,
We're gettin' way too close to going there
The farther off the better to resist, we really shouldn't be doing this.
Only an isolated incident, but the acquaintance left me stunned.
The first attraction was the hardest hit I thought I'd ever overcome.

This kinda situation has to pass, this chance encounter has to be the last.
To take it farther we would be remiss, we really shouldn't be doing this.
We'd each be hurting somebody else if we don't say our good-byes real fast.
Won't even think about a farewell kiss, we really shouldn't be doing this.

Well...
We really shouldn't be doing this and we both know why.
Just being close enough to think like this, enough to make me have to lie.
This kinda talk will lead us to somewhere,
We're gettin' way too close to going there
The farther off the better to resist, we really shouldn't be doing this.

This kinda situation has to pass, this chance encounter has to be the last.
To take it further we would be remiss, we really shouldn't be doing this.
Won't even think about a good-bye kiss, we really shouldn't be doing this.
