Paul Weller – I Didn't Mean To Hurt You lyrics

I've heard them all talking I guess you have too
Adding flickers to the flame
How I've treated you
I take the blame
But let me say - that they don't know
The really don't know - the fools don't know
That I really didn't mean to hurt you.
Oh darling, I didn't mean to hurt you
Please believe me when I say - that I didn't mean to hurt you girl.

Whatever they tell you
There's more I could say
Lending motion to the wheel
How you built me up
When I was falling down
But who knows - you just might find
Just might find - that I'm just your kind
And I really didn't mean to hurt you.

And tho' I was looking there for something
Some things have no meaning
While I was looking there for something
Everything had gone

And still as I looked; I lived
And still as I lived; I wondered.
