Don't Let Me Be Misunderstood

Lyrics: Benjamin, Marcus, Caldwell
Music: Benjamin, Marcus, Caldwell

Played by Robben Ford with Phil Lesh & Friends on 29 July 2000.

Baby, do you understand me now
Sometimes I feel a little mad
And don't you know that no one alive can always be an angel
When things go wrong you're bound to see a little bad
I'm just a soul whose intentions are good
Oh Lord, please don't let me be misunderstood

Baby, sometimes I'm so carefree, with a joy that's hard to hide
And then sometimes it seems all I have is worries
And then you're bound to see my other side
I'm just a soul whose intentions are good
Oh Lord, please don't let me be misunderstood

If I seem mean to you, I want you to know
That I never mean to take it out on you
Life has it's problems and I get my share
But that's one thing that I never mean to do

'Cause I love you
Oh oh baby, don't you know I'm human
I have faults just like any other one
And sometimes I find myself alone and regretting
Some foolish little sinful thing I've done
But I'm just a soul whose intentions are good
Oh Lord, please don't let me be misunderstood

If I seem mean to you, I want you to know
That I never mean to take it out on you
Life has it's problems and I get my share
But that's one thing that I never mean to do

'Cause I love you
Oh oh baby, don't you know I'm human
I have faults just like any other one
And sometimes I find myself alone and regretting
Some foolish little sinful thing I've done
But I'm just a soul whose intentions are good
Oh Lord, please don't let me be misunderstood

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