Misunderstood Songtext

Baby, you understand me now
If sometimes you see that I'm mad
No one can always be an angel
When everything goes wrong you see something bad
Well I'm just a soul who's intention's are good
Ho Lord, please don't let me be misunderstood

Yeah, uh
(Misunderstood) We do this, for the people that walk that path
Don't let me be misunderstood
Try'na get to they dream, yeah, uh


(Ha) He stood on the corner with the rest of them
Though he knew that this corner wasn't the best of them
Hard streets and the life that carrested him
Dirt police domestic beefs thats festerin'
He knew that the president wasn't addressin' him
Though dead presidents was addressin' him
Two kids from hot sex no protection and
People don't see how aids is affectin' him
It get hard you get to get to god questionin'
Can't find a job so ya robbin' and hustlin'
He killed marks and sold dope for cousin em'
Can't believe they would be the ones buckin' him
He on the ground he could feel God touchin' him
He heard the sound of his mom sayin trust in him
At heaven's gates, sayin' "Lord please let me in
Or send me back to tell my people to be better man" (Misunderstood)

Cause we are
Don't let me be misunderstood
Misunderstood
Don't let me be misunderstood, don't (uh... yea)
I'm just human, oh


She dancin', she dance, she dance for them
Her body move but her mind was manickin'
Thinkin' I don't know where they hands had been
Relationships with men have been so damagin'
She thought back to when she was in Howard and
Dreams of doing scenes with Terence Howard and
Broadway plays and dancin' with Alv and them
The ones that make it always ain't the talented
Some dreams get lost never to be found again
At first strippin' seemed so empowerin'
Most every girl wanna do it now and then
But bein' meat everyday is devourin'
Cats puttin' paper where she put powder in
Life would break her, now she powderin'
She was high when she fell down and then
Crowd surroundin' and, heart was poundin' and
She fell into a deep sleep, the siren sounded and
Seen bright lights in the mist of clouds and then
Talk to God feelin like His child again
Said "Lord let me live so I can make you proud again" (Misunderstood)

Cause we are
Don't let me be misunderstood, don't
Misunderstood, don't
Don't let me be misunderstood, don't
I'm just human, yeah

The life we lead, will always lead us
And we pray that He, will never leave us
It's the price we pay, I guess that's the reason
Why my grandma say, we all need Jesus
The life we lead, will always lead us
And we pray that He, will never leave us
It's the price we pay, I guess that's the reason
Why my grandma say, we all need Jesus

Misunderstood, don't
Don't let me be misunderstood, don't
Misunderstood, don't
Don't let me be misunderstood, don't
I'm just human
