I needed time to realize my crime
It was let me love and steal
I did dances inside my mind
Now how can I be real?

Do you really want to hurt me?
Do you really want to make me cry?
No I don't really want to hurt you
Then lovers always asked me
Why, why, why, why?

In my mind my memory's burning
What's your favorite color of your favorite car?
I took a step the step was learning
That, that's a step beyond a step too far

Do you, do you really want to hurt me?
Do you really want to make me cry?
No I don't really want to hurt you
I told the truth but it was still a lie

The words are few some are unspoken
I could sleep four thousand years
Man of sorrows word unbroken
His sweat like blood came down like tears

I've been talkin' but believe me
I know that it's true
Now that there's no more
I don't know

I'm in love and love's the reason
I'm not prepared to let you, let me go so
If it's love you want then take all of me
It's this love I want, I can finally see

Do you really wanna hurt me?
Do you really wanna make me cry?
But I don't really wanna hurt you
Love is always asked me
Why, why, why?

Do I really wanna hurt you?
Do I really wanna make you cry?
Yes I suppose, I wanna hurt you
You told the truth but it was still a lie

Do you really wanna take me, hurt me?
Do you, do you wanna
Do you, do you, do you wanna hurt me?
