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

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
Other times it seems that all I have to do is worry
And then I know 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 get 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
But that is one thing I would never do 'cause I love you

Oh, don't you know I'm human?
I've got my faults just like anyone
Sometimes I lie awake long regretting
Some foolish thing, some sinful thing I've done

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

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

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