Christina Aguilera – Hurt lyrics

Seems like it was yesterday when I saw your face
You told me how proud you were but I walked away
If only I knew what I know today
Ooh, Oooh...

I would hold you in my arms
I would take the pain away
Thank you for all you've done
Forgive all your mistakes
There's nothing I wouldn't do
To hear your voice again
Sometimes I want to call you
But I know you won't be there

OOh, I'm sorry for blaming you
For everything I just couldn't do
And I've hurt myself, by hurting you

Somedays I feel broke inside but I won't admit
Sometimes I just want to hide, cause it's you I miss
And it's so hard to say goodbye
When it comes to this

Oooh, Yeah...

Would you tell me I was wrong?
Would you help me understand?
Are you looking down upon me?
Are you proud of who I am?
There's nothing I wouldn't do
To have this one more chance
To look into your eyes
And see you looking back

OOh, I'm sorry for blaming you
For everything I just couldn't do
And I've hurt myself, Oooh...

If I had just one more day
I would tell you how much
That I've missed you since
You've been away.
Oooh, It's dangerous
So out of line...
To try and turn back time...

I'm sorry for blaming you
For everything I just couldn't do
And I've hurt myself...

By hurting you...

    My husband of almost twenty years had serious mental problems and ended up on hard drugs to self medicate. In the midst I could no longer allow the destruction of my sanity or my child's safety. In the end I was kidnapped and assaulted and before all was said and done he committed suicide. This song is my story, my regret at the inability to save the love of my life and the guilt of him being gone without saying goodbye. Bad or good, true love is eternal. But then again so is the pain and the loss.

    This song is about her Dad! She was upset with him for very long time. Then he came back to her life wanted to make up. She denied him although she was dying for his love. But when she realized that how much she love, miss her dad It was lil too late. So she regrets that she didn't opened up to him sooner The pain she had was too deep. At the time she thought that she had all the time in the world. Now she wishes she can go back the time when he was still around. She would let him know how much she loved him. And wants to know if he's proud of her becoming who she is.

    I think the video is a cover up for someone she really felt strongly about in her past that at that time she was really missing them, and could'nt tell them no other way on how she felt deeply inside but threw song. So now her heart is cleansed, cause she was holding it for such a long time. Anyways I just love the song, and its a great job both emotionally and vocally, if that's a word.

    I do love this song but it reminds me of my Aunt who I was very close to and I miss her a lot. She died of cancer and I miss her everyday and I can't listen to this song anymore as it sends me into tears.
    I think this song is about someone that she loved who has died. Yes it could be a father but also it could be about any family member or someone you were close to. Love it. X
