Lyric "I Hurt You"

I've been crying, like a woman
'cause I'm mad, mad, mad like a man
If you'd been in the SS in '43
You'd've been kicked out for cruelty
I hurt you
'cause you hurt me
So I hurt you
'cause you hurt me

I've been wondering
About your dependency
Your idea of defiance
Is a modern day mystery
Your arms and chest are cold
When your back is on fire
And the only time you've come clean
Is when you're talking to your buyer
I hurt you
'cause you hurt me
So I hurt you
'cause you hurt me

Forget our philosophies
We admired when we were young
And our popular points of view
Can't mean much
Nothing, or something, or anything
If we can't say I love you

Happy Birthday darling
Thank you for the schooling
Your correction mistress warned me
Man she wasn't foolin'
Never trust a user with your television overnight
Don't try to paint your masterpiece under artificial light
I hurt you
'cause you hurt me
So I hurt you
'cause you hurt me

What sounds like background lyrics sounds to me just like the main
Lyrics repeated a line afterward. Neat effect, though it does make
Determining the lyrics harder; it was much easier to get it from 'Isle
Of View', and then match it up with the version on 'Learning to




The Pretenders are an English-American rock band formed in Hereford, England, in March 1978. The original band consisted of initiator and main songwriter Chrissie Hynde (lead vocals, rhythm guitar), James Honeyman-Scott (lead guitar, backing vocals, keyboards), Pete Farndon (bass guitar, backing vocals), and Martin Chambers (drums, backing vocals, percussion). Following the drug-related deaths of Honeyman-Scott and Farndon, the band has experienced numerous subsequent personnel changes, with Hynde as the only consistent member, and Chambers returning after an absence of several years.
