I know all about, 'bout your reputation
And how it's bound to be a heartbreak situation
But I can't help it if I'm helpless
Everytime that I'm where you are
You walk in and my strength walks out the door
Say my name and I can't fight anymore
Oh I know I should go
But I need your touch just too damn much

Loving you isn't really something I should do
Shouldn't wanna spend my time with you
I should try to be strong
But baby, you're the right kind of wrong
Baby you're the right kind of wrong

Might be a mistake, a mistake I'm making
But what you're giving I am happy to be taking
'Coz no one's ever made me feel the way I feel
When I'm in your arms
They say you're something I should do without
They don't know what goes on when the lights go out
There's no way to explain
All the pleasure is worth all the pain

Loving you isn't really something I should do
Shouldn't wanna spend my time with you
I should try to be strong
But baby, you're the right kind of wrong
Baby you're the right kind of wrong

I should try to run
But I just can't seem to
'Coz every time I run you're the one I run to
I can't do without what you do to me
I don't care if I'm in too deep

I know all about, 'bout your reputation
And how it's bound to be a heartbreak situation
But I can't help it if I'm helpless
Everytime that I'm where you are
You walk in and my strength walks out the door
Say my name and I can't fight anymore
Oh I know I should go
But I need your touch just too damn much

Loving you isn't really something I should do
Shouldn't wanna spend my time with you
I should try to be strong
But baby, you're the right kind of wrong
Baby you're the right kind of wrong

    General CommentThis song totally means a lot to me since i am in a situation like this now. I really like a guy a lot and we do stuff occasionally but everyone tells me he is no good for me. But all the pain that he inflicts on me doesnt matter because he makes me so happy. The times he makes me happy matter much more than the times he makes me sad and others just don't realize that but this song explains it well.

    General Commenti really like the line "i should try to run but i just can't seem to/ cuz everytime i run you're the one i run to"

    its so true; when we're in relationships like this, you try to escape cuz everyone tells you it'd be better for you, but you just cant leave cuz you need him too much. this song comes a lil too close to my relationship right now.

    General CommentThis song basically sums up my entire relationship with a boy... "You walk in and my strength walks out the door Say my name and I can't fight anymore Oh I know I should go But I need your touch just too damn much " It even has my friend opinion and how I feel towards that ("They say you're something I should do without They don't know what goes on when the lights go out There's no way to explain All the pleasure is worth all the pain")

    All the pain of not knowing how he feels is just worth being with him.

    Oh and this is my favorite song!

    General CommentA girl sang this song in front of our school at some assembly and me and a few guys got together and actually played the entire song for her. I was on lead guitar and I also sang the song with her. It was great. We even sang again at a football game "Heads Carolina, Tails California". Not appropriate for a football game I know, but we had fun doing it. But this song is really good and I like it. Especially the movie.
