It's a thin line, it's 5 o'clock in the morning
And I'm just getting in, I knock on the door
A voice sweet and low says, who is it?
She opens up the door and lets me in
Never do she once say, sir, where have you been?
No, she says, are you hungry? 
Are you hungry, honey? Did you eat yet?
Let me hang up your coat, your coat, your coat
And the woman tells me, pass me your hat too
All the time she smiles, never once raises her voice 
It's 5 o'clock in the morning

1-It's a thin line between love and hate..

2-The sweetest woman in the world
  Can be the meanest woman in the world
  If you make her that way, you keep on hurting her
  She keeps being quiet
  She might be holding something inside
  That really really hurt you one day

Here I am laying in the hospital
Bandaged from feet to head
Ya see I'm in the state of shock
Just that much from being dead
I didn't think my woman could do something like this to me
I didn't think she had the nerve, so here I am 
I guess action speaks louder than words
(repeat 1, 2, 1)

It's a thin line, between love and hate
It's a thin line...
