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 lord...

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
wanna shiver........
