Michael Bolton – Love Shouldn't Hurt lyrics

Born in pure innocence
Born without fear

She says "mommy what did I do wrong,
To make you cry your angry tears? "

Feeling dirty and ashamed
Keeps making up excuses
She's learned how to hide the pain
But she can't hide the bruises anymore

There's no light behind her eyes
She's tryin' to find love in a strangers touch
14 years old and so alone
Desperate for what she needs so much

(Michael) She cries herself to sleep at night
And prays she won't wake up...
Love shouldn't hurt
Love shouldn't scar
But sometimes we can be so blind
To the way things really are
Love can be so unkind
Truth is that hearts get broken every day
But love should never hurt this way...

Children having children
And growing up too fast

If you've never been shown love
How can you give love back?

Her newborn baby's cryin'
It's more than she can stand

She doesn't see the tragedy
When she raises her own hand

There's no light behind her eyes
She doesn't realize what she has done
Didn't think she was being so rough

Little one won't you please wake up?

Chorus X2

... But love should never hurt this way...
