Lyrics

I CAN’T KEEP FROM CRYIN, OH NO BOY
YOU AIN’T DONE NOTHIN WRONG
YOU JUST MADE ME FEEL SO GOOD, IT HURTS ME,
CUZ I’VE BEEN WITHOUT YOU SO LONG
AND NOW I’VE GOT A GOOD KIND OF HURT, I CAN’T DESCRIBE,
I’VE GOT A GOOD KIND OF HURT,
OH BOY, OH BOY, YOU MAKE ME,
YOU REALLY MAKE ME COME ALIVE

I THOUGHT YOU WOULD HURT ME SO I PUT YOU OFF
AND MADE LOVE A GAME NOW I FEEL SO BAD FOR
ALL THE TIME I’VE WASTED BUT I FEEL SO GOOD
I SHOULD BE ASHAMED CUZ I’VE JUST GOT A
GOOD KIND OF HURT CAN’T DESCRIBE, I’VE GOT A
GOOD KIND OF HURT, OH BOY OH BOY YOU MAKE ME
YOU REALLY MAKE ME COME ALIVE

YOUR LOVE’S JUST LIKE CANDY FOR THE SWEET TOOTH I’VE GOT
NOW I’VE HAD A TASTE, AND I JUST DON’T WANT TO STOP
I NEVER KNEW HURT COULD BE SUCH A GOOD FEELIN FOR ME
I FEEL IT, I FEEL IT, I FEEL IT’S JUST A
GOOD KIND OF HURT, CAN’T DESCRIBE,
I’VE GOT A GOOD KIND OF HURT
OH BOY OH BOY YOU MAKE ME,
YOU REALLY MAKE ME COME ALIVE
