"Do You Really Want to Hurt Me? (Culture Club cover)" as written by and George/moss O'dowd....
Give me time to realize my crime
Let me love and steal.
I have danced inside your eyes
How can I be real.

Do you really want to hurt me
Do you really want to make me cry
Precious kisses words that burn me
Lovers never ask you why.
In my heart the fire is burning
Choose my color find a star
Precious people always tell me
That's a step a step too far.

Do you really want to hurt me
Do you really want to make me cry
Do you really want to hurt me
Do you really want to make me cry.

Words are few
I have spoken
I could waste a thousand years
Wrapped in sorrow, words are token
Come inside and catch my tears
You've been talking but believe me
If it's true you do not know
This boy loves without a reason
I'm prepared to let you go

If it's love you want from me
Then take it away
Everything's not what you see it's over again.

Do you really want to hurt me
Do you really want to make me cry
Do you really want to hurt me
Do you really want to make me cry.

Give me time to realize my crime
Let me love and steal.
I have danced inside your eyes
How can I be real.
If it's love you want from me then take it again.

    General CommentThis song is one of the best remakes of any song ever. Most of the time when people remake a song it seems like they try to copy the artist, or maybe they sing one part a little lower. This remake is like a reply to songmeanings.net/songs/view/42619/ . I still don't really know what the meaning might be. There is also a strange Jesus reference: Man of sorrows, Word unbroken, His sweat like blood came down like tears -Luke 22:44.
