]Verse 1(
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 rough I feel real bad

]Chorus(
I'm just a soul who's intentions are good
Oh Lord, please don't let me be misunderstood

]Verse 1(
Baby, sometimes I'm so carefree
With a joy that's hard to hide
And othertimes it seems that, all I have to do is worry
And then I know you're bound to see my other side

]Chorus(
I'm just a soul who's intentions are good
Oh lord, please don't let me be misunderstood

]Intro(

]Verse 2(
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
But that's one thing that I would never do
'cos I love you

]Verse 1(
Oh... Don't you know I'm human
I got my thoughts like any other one
Sometimes I find myself, Lord, regreting
Some foolish thing - some simple thing I've done

]Chorus(
I'm just a soul who's intentions are good
Oh lord, please don't let me be misunderstood

]Intro(

]Chorus(
I'm just a soul who's intentions are good
Oh lord, please don't let me be misunderstood

]Intro(

]Chorus(
I'm just a soul who's intentions are good
Oh lord, please don't let me be misunderstood
