So you tell me that you’re misunderstood
Well I surely believe it’s true
You’ve been hiding out for so long now
That I wonder who could understand you
But someday I’m gonna see inside you’re secret mind
I can wait. I’ve got time, I’ve got time, I’ve got time

So you say you’re all alone in this life
You’re just watching the world go ‘round
Every time you let someone in that someone only lets you down
So you put on a mascara mask and you pull your hood down over your eyes
And you set about protecting yourself from a world that only makes them cry
Come on, come on, come on, come on now

Try, try, try, and the answers getting clearer
All the time, time, time, nobody knows
You could lose yourself in the by and by
When you keep yourself a secret for too long,
You know, it’s no good

How long you gonna have to be misunderstood?
How long you gonna have to be misunderstood?

The other day I went to see you
You know it’d been a while
I went in and started talking to you
And trying to make you smile
Maybe you did, maybe I didn’t look close enough
Let me come a little closer. Why you always gotta make it so tough?
Come on, come on, you know you got to

Try, try, try, and the answer’s getting clearer
All the time, time, time, nobody knows
You could lose yourself in the by and by
When you keep yourself a secret for too long,
You know it’s no good

How long you gonna have to be misunderstood?
How long you gonna have to be misunderstood?
How long you gonna have to be misunderstood?
How long you gonna have to be misunderstood?
