Baby, do you understand me now?
Sometimes I feel a little mad
But don't you know that no one alive can always be an angel
When things go wrong I seem to be bad

Cause 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,
That I never meant to take it out on you
Life has its problems, and I've got my share,
That's one thing I never meant to do
Cause I love you!

Baby, don't you know I'm just human
And I've got thoughts like any other man
And sometimes I feel myself, oh lord, regretting
Some foolish thing, some foolish thing I've done

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

Oh lord, don't you let me be misunderstood
Don't let me be
Don't let me be misunderstood, no no no no no no

------------

Ohhh...
Come to me baby
Esmeralda...
Ah, come on baby
You're so sweet
Mighty sweet
Come around me babe
Come around me, I love ya
Oh don't play with me baby
Come on, talk to me
Esmeralda
Oh baby
Oh please!
Oh lord pleeeeaase babe
My sweet Esmeralda!

Baby, do you understand me now?
Sometimes I feel a little mad
But don't you know that no one alive can always be an angel
When things go wrong I seem to be bad

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

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

Cause 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,
That I never meant to take it out on you
Life has its problems, and I've got my share,
That's one thing I never meant to do
Cause I love you

Oh baby, don't you know I'm human
I have thoughts like any other man
And sometimes I feel myself, oh lord, regretting
Some foolish thing, some foolish thing I've done

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

    Song MeaningOne of THE best songs about a man needing his woman to reconsider his foolishness from a time before. That is a part of love. The trick is to find someone that makes your time with more than compensate for ALL their flaws. Then you COULD forgive them for ANYTHING, whether you like it or not.

    General CommentKill Bill Vol. 1 is an awesome soundtrack. I think this song is an apology for something that he did to upset his "Sweet Esmeralda"

    General CommentIt must have been something awful, as he's apologizing for more than 10 minutes ;)

    Sounds like bipolar disorder
