Baby you understand me now
If sometimes you see that I'm mad
Don't cha know no one alive can always be an angel?
When everything goes wrong, you see some bad

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

You know sometimes baby I'm so carefree
With a joy that's hard to hide
And then sometimes it seems again that all I have is worry
And then you're bound to see my other side

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

If I seem edgy I want you to know
I never mean to take it out on you
Life has its problems and God knows I have more than my share
But that's one thing I never mean to do

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

Oh, don't let me be
No, no, no, no, no, no, no
Don't let me be misunderstood
I don't mean to hurt you, nah
But sometimes I'm so edgy
And it have nothing to do with you
I promise it doesn't, it's just me
But I do, I love you
So don't let me be, don't let me be
Oh don't let me be, oh don't let me be
Oh, no, no, no
Don't let me be
Oh baby you understand me now
Oh baby you understand me now, understand me now
Oh baby now
Don't let me be baby
Oh yeah, yeah no
Oh don't you let me be, don't you let me be
