Hurt people hurt people's how it begins
And I don't wanna cause you pain
This ain't the way that I thought we would live

When I start to feel like I'm in trouble again
I just keep it as friends 'cause I know how it ends
When I feel like I'll be the devil again
I'll sit back and pretend like we both never met

I found courage at 16 but lost it at 23
I'm not okay, I'm not okay
And I lost my self-esteem believing in a dream
I lost my faith, I lost my faith, oh-oh

Hurt people hurt people's how it begins
And I don't wanna cause you pain
This ain't the way that I thought we would live
You might think that I'm crazy
You might think you can save me
I wish it was that easy, oh-oh-oh
Hurt people hurt people, that's how it ends
And I don't wanna cause you pain

No, I don't wanna cause you pain
No, I don't wanna cause you pain

When the cracks appear and we fall in-between
Oh, you suddenly see this is far from your dreams
When the chaos comes and we're sleepless awake
I'm a slave to my ways
You deserve better days

I found courage at 16 and lost it when you had me
It's not okay, it's not okay
So don't lose your self-esteem believing in a dream
And lose your way, don't lose your faith, oh-oh

Hurt people hurt people's how it begins
And I don't wanna cause you pain
This ain't the way that I thought we would live
You might think that I'm crazy
You might think you can save me
I wish it was that easy, oh-oh-oh
Hurt people hurt people, that's how it ends
And I don't wanna cause you pain

No, I don't wanna cause you pain
No, I don't wanna cause you pain

Why won't you hear me when I say
You're way too good for me anyway?
Why won't you hear me when I say
You're way too good for me anyway?

Hurt people hurt people's how it begins
And I don't wanna cause you pain
This ain't the way that I thought we would live, ooh
You might think that I'm crazy (Crazy)
You might think you can save me (Save me)
I wish it was that easy (Easy), oh-oh-oh
Hurt people hurt people, that's how it ends
And I don't wanna cause you pain

No, I don't wanna cause you pain
No, I don't wanna cause you pain

Cause you pain
I don't wanna cause you pain
