Common - Misunderstood lyrics

Your rating:

Baby, you understand me now

If sometimes you see that I'm mad

No one can always be an angel

When everything goes wrong you see some bad

Well I'm just a soul whose intentions are good

Oh Lord, please don't let me be misunderstood



Yeah, uh (Misunderstood)

We do this, for the people that walk that path

Tryna get to their dream, yeah, uh (oh)


He stood on the corner with the rest of them

Though he knew that this corner wasn't the best of him

Hard streets and a life that crested him

Dirt police domestic beefs that's festerin

He knew the President wadn't addressin him

Though dead presidents was undressin him

Two kids from hot sex no protection and

People don't see how AIDS is affectin 'em

It get hard to get the get the God question in

Can't find a job so you robbin and hustlin

He killed marks and sold dope for cousin 'em

Can't believe they would be the ones bucking him

He on the ground he could feel God touching him

He heard the sound of his moms sayin trust in him

At heaven's gate, saying please Lord let me in

Or send me back to tell my people to be better men




'Cause we are - Misunderstood

Misunderstood, Don't let me be misunderstood

I'm just human, oh



Uh, yeah

She dancin she dance she dance for them

Her body move but her mind was manic'n

Thinkin I don't know where they hands have been

Relationships with men have been so damagin

She thought back to when she was at Howard and

Dreams of doing scenes with Terrence Howard and

Broadway plays and dancin with Alv and them

The ones that make it always ain't the talented

Some dreams get lost never to be found again

At first strippin seemed so empowerin

Most every girl wanna do it now and then

But bein meat every day is devourin

Cats puttin paper where she put powder and

Life would break her, now she powderin

She was high when she fell down and then

Crowd surrounding and, heart was poundin and

She fell into a deep sleep the siren sounded and

Seen bright lights in the midst of clouds and then

Talked to God, feeling like his child again

Said Lord let me live so I can make you proud again




The life we lead, will always lead us

And we pray that he, will never leave us

It's the price we pay, I guess that's the reason

Why my grandma sang, we all need Jesus [2x]


Misunderstood, don't let me be, misunderstood

Misunderstood, don't let me be, misunderstood

I'm just human
