Hurt People

Hurt people, hurt people's how it begins
And I don’t wanna cause you pain
This ain't the way that I thought we would live

When I start to feel like I'm in trouble again
I just keep it as friends ’cause I know how it ends
When I feel like I'll be the devil again
I'll sit back and pretend like we both never met

I found courage at 16, but lost it at 23
I'm not okay, I'm not okay
And I lost my self-esteem believing in a dream
I lost my faith, I lost my faith, oh-oh

Hurt people, hurt people's how it begins
And I don't wanna cause you pain
This ain't the way that I thought we would live
You might think that I’m crazy
You might think you can save me
I wish it was that easy, oh-oh-oh
Hurt people hurt people, that’s how it ends
And I don't wanna cause you pain, eh, eh

No, I don’t wanna cause you pain, eh, eh
No, I don't wanna cause you pain, eh, eh

When our cracks appear and we fall in-between
Oh, you suddenly see this is far from your dreams
When the chaos comes and we're sleepless, awake
I'm a slave to my ways, you deserve better days

You found courage at 16 and lost it when you had me
That’s not okay, it's not okay
So don't lose your self-esteem believing in a dream
And lose your way, don't lose your faith, oh-oh

Hurt people, hurt people's how it begins
And I don't wanna cause you pain
This ain't the way that I thought we would live, oh whoa
You might think that I'm crazy
You might think you can save me
I wish it was that easy, oh-oh-oh
Hurt people, hurt people, that's how it ends
And I don't wanna cause you pain, eh, eh

No, I don't wanna cause you pain, eh, eh
No, I don't wanna cause you pain

Why won't you hear me when I say
You're way too good for me anyway?
Why won't you hear me when I say
You're way too good for me anyway?

Hurt people, hurt people's how it begins
And I don't wanna cause you pain
This ain't the way that I thought we would live, ooh
You might think that I'm crazy (Crazy)
You might think you can save me (Save me)
I wish it was that easy (Easy), oh-oh-oh
Hurt people hurt people, that's how it ends
And I don't wanna cause you pain, eh (Eh), eh (Eh)

No, I don't wanna cause you pain (Eh), eh (Eh), eh (Eh)
No, I don't wanna cause you pain

Cause you pain
I don't wanna cause you pain
