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 feel real bad.

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

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 mean to take it out on you
Life has its problems, and I get my share,
And that's one thing I never mean to do

Cause I love you,
Oh,

Oh, oh, oh, baby - don't you know I'm human
I have thoughts like any other one
Sometimes I find myself, Lord, regretting
Some foolish thing, some little simple thing I've done

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

Yes, I'm just a soul whose intentions are good

    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
