"It It's Hurting You" as written by and Robert Peter/chambers Williams....
Please don't think of me
If you do you gotta block it
I got chills tonight
And you can't be here to stop it
I'm not a parasite
It's just a lonely night
Tonight

I walked from the bar
'Cause they were only laughing
I wished on our star
But they covered it in satin
I'm not a gigolo
That's what I want you to know
Tonight

Ooh ooh
I've hurt you I can see
Ooh ooh
Do you think it's not hurting me

Ooh ooh
The grass ain't always green
And if it's hurting you
You know that's its hurting me
You know that's its hurting me

You'll meet other men
Who will break your heart
If I see you with them
It's gonna tear me apart

Maybe in another life
We wouldn't be alone
Tonight

Ooh ooh
I've hurt you I can see
Ooh ooh
Do you think its not hurting me

Ooh ooh
The grass ain't always green
And if it's hurting you
You know that it's hurting me
You know that it's hurting me
You know that it's hurting me
You know that it's hurting me

    General CommentThis one is obviously about a relationship break up, but in the lyrics he (probably Robbie) still has feelings for her, and probably wants to be good friends instead. He is relating to her pain aswell.
    My fave line:
    "Maybe in another life
    We wouldn't be alone
    Tonight"

    General CommentIt's about a break up of a relationship, I wonder if Robbie wrote it about Nicole Appleton.
    But it's basically the form of going through the motions, he's trying to get over the separation with the lyrics: "Please don't think of me, if you do you gotta block it" and understanding she's in the same pain as well, as break ups are hard on any party.

    And with: "I walked from the bar, cos they were only laughing" with trying to get on with life and having a laugh with friends, but the fact remaining you can't forget your problems in a hurry, and something will always remind you of that person if you are still trying to get over them.

    And then with: "I hurt you, I can see, You think it's not hurting me" and then with "If it's hurting you, you know that it's hurting me" meaning he will always have that care and concern for that person, and will have to live with the fact he has caused that pain but that he does recognize that.

    And with "You'll meet other men, who will break your heart, if I see you with them, it's gonna tear me apart" which he knows she will eventually move on, but it's going to kill him seeing her with someone else.

    Overall, awesome song, beautiful vocals and acoustic guitar track, one of my fave Robbie Williams songs
