Oooh ahh, i'm hurting, bad
Oooh ahh i'm hurting bad!
I did not see what i was supposed to see
Taking it easy when a friend told me i was in
Danger, so much danger.
Underestimating my woman, not taking her
Out, working too hard and now she's gone off
With a stranger, someone i don't even know.
I should have taken her out, every once and a
While, taken her to dinner on the finer side, shown
Her a life that was all worth while, now i guese i gotta
Walk an extra mile! i could beat myself! ahh yeah.
Now i'm gonna feel funny out there in the crowd
When my friends all ask me, where is your woman?
Long time i don't see. now i've got to think fast gotta
Use my head, give a good story and make sure they
Buy my version of the situation.
All the while i wouldn't lie i'm gonna do this once
See my reputation sinking in the distance, if they
Knew the truth that really existed...then my little sanity
Would be wasted! i could beat myself ahh yes..i could
Beat myself!!! ohh lord lord.
Oooh ooh i'm hurting, hurting inside
Oooh ooh i'm hurting
Now i really want to hear a little news now and
Then, this is not what i expect to hear from my
Friend i'm dissapointed. he should realize that its
Gonna destroy my position (remember i'm a name
Brand) now i've gotta see....i should have held her tight
Every once and a while, gotten it together on the finer style
Shown her a life that was all worth while, now it seems i gotta
Walk an extra mile....i could beat myself..ahh yes, i could beat myself
Ooh i'm hurting...
Ooooh i'm hurting,hurting inside
I don't know what i wanna tell you
But i wanna tell you something real, real good yes
Someting to make you
