Baby, you understand me now
Though sometimes you see that I am mad
No-one can always be an angel
When everything goes wrong, you'll see some bad

But I'm just a soul, who's intentions are good
Oh Lord, please don't let me be misunderstood

Sometimes I'm so care-free, with the joy that's hard to hide
Most of the time, I'm so full of worries
And then you're bound to see my other side

But I'm just a soul, who's intentions are good
Oh Lord please don't let me be misunderstood
Don't let me be misunderstood

If I seem edgy, I want you to know
I never mean to take it out on you, no
'Cos life has its problems
And I've got more than my share
That's one thing that I never wanna do
Cause I love you baby
I'm just human, I have faults like anyone
Sometimes I think I'll spend the rest of my life regretting
Some simple things that I have done

But I'm just a soul, who's intentions are good
Oh Lord please don't let me be misunderstood
Don't let me be misunderstood
Don't let me be
Don't let me be misunderstood
Don't let me be
Don't let me be misunderstood
