Don’t let me be misunderstood

March 3, 2007

We were onour way out last night and Paul started to have trouble with his car. We decided that we should probably go home and switch over the cars. We were driving home and Paul was getting more and more stressed, no wonder – it was tea time, the traffic was terrible, it was pissing with rain and he was scared that the car would stop completely at any moment.

Anyway, I asked him something and he snapped at me and said something that really hurt me and immediately made me cry.

We got home and he was trying to apologise but all it would do was make me cry more. He told me time and time again that it was stupid, he had no idea why he said it and that there was not an ounce of truth in it anyway.

Eventually we made up. I couldn’t face going out and seeing people then (which was a shame because it was bowling and I love bowling) so Paul bought me a curry and we stayed in.

I was sat in the car having a cigarette later and this song came on the radio. It puts into words what we had been fighting about so perfectly and I wanted to put it here so I can remember.

Baby you understand me now
If sometimes you see that I'm mad
Doncha know no one alive can always be an angel?
When everything goes wrong you see some bad

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

Ya know sometimes baby I'm so carefree
with a joy that's hard to hide
And then sometimes it seems again that all I have is worry
And then you're bound to see my other side

But 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
I never mean to take it out on you
Life has its problems
and I get more than my share
but that's one thing I never mean to do

Caus' I love you
Oh baby
I'm just human
Don't you know I have faults like anyone?

Sometimes I find myself alone regretting
some little fooling thing
some simple thing that I've done

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

Don't let me be misunderstood
I try so hard

So please don't let me be misunderstood

    I wondered where you were. And to be honest I was a little worried. Glad things are ok now.
