Beres Hammond — I Could Beat Myself lyrics

Oooh ahh, I'm hurting, bad
Oooh ahh I'm hurting bad!
I did not see what I was supposed to see
Taking it easy when a friend told me I was in
Danger, so much danger.
Underestimating my woman, not taking her
Out, working too hard and now she's gone off
With a stranger, someone I don't even know.
I should have taken her out, every once and a
While, taken her to dinner on the finer side, shown
Her a life that was all worth while, now I guese I gotta
Walk an extra mile! I could beat myself! Ahh yeah.
Now I'm gonna feel funny out there in the crowd
When my friends all ask me, where is your woman?
Long time I don't see. Now I've got to think fast gotta
Use my head, give a good story and make sure they
Buy my version of the situation.
All the while I wouldn't lie I'm gonna do this once
See my reputation sinking in the distance, if they
Knew the truth that really existed... Then my little sanity
Would be wasted! I could beat myself ahh yes.. I could
Beat myself!!! Ohh lord lord.
Oooh ooh I'm hurting, hurting inside
Oooh ooh I'm hurting
Now I really want to hear a little news now and
Then, this is not what I expect to hear from my
Friend I'm dissapointed. He should realize that its
Gonna destroy my position (remember I'm a name
Brand) now I've gotta see.... I should have held her tight
Every once and a while, gotten it together on the finer style
Shown her a life that was all worth while, now it seems I gotta
Walk an extra mile.... I could beat myself.. Ahh yes, I could beat myself
Ooh lord...
Ooh I'm hurting...
Ooooh I'm hurting, hurting inside
I don't know what I wanna tell you
But I wanna tell you something real, real good yes
Someting to make you
Wanna shiver....
