Lyrics (By Google Search)

Baby, you understand me now?
If sometimes you see that I’m mad
Don’tcha know that no one alive can always be an angel?
When everything goes wrong, you see some bad
But oh, I’m just a soul whose intentions are good
Oh Lord, please don’t let me be misunderstood
You know sometimes, baby I’m so carefree
Oh, with a joy that’s hard to hide
And then sometimes again it seems 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 me one thing I never mean to do
‘Cause 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 foolish thing
Some simple thing that I’ve done
‘Cause 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
No, no, no, please
Songwriters: Bennie Benjamin / Gloria Caldwell / Sol Marcus

My Thoughts

I heard this song in a trailer for the television show Luther (Season 1) called Luther – New Series 2011 Trailer – BBC One:

Embarrassingly when I saw the trailer above, I assumed that it was a man singing the song until I looked up the song, and then I learned that I was mistaken.

I think that this song goes well with the Luther television show, that it goes well with the character John Luther himself, and that it is a good song in general.

The end,

-John Jr
