John Mellencamp — Hurts So Good lyrics

First you take my heart
In the palm of your hand
And you squeeze it tight
Then you take my mind
And play with it all night

You take my pride
And throw it up against the wall
You take me in your arms baby
And bounce me like a rubber ball

I ain't complaining
What you're doing you see
Cause this hurting feeling is
Oh so good for me

Don't you know that it's hurts so good
Don't you know that it's hurts so good
Don't you know that it's hurts so good
Hurts so good

You take my name
And you scandalise it in the street
Oh anything you wanna do
I say it's alright by me

Then you turned me around
And check my masculinity
So let me tell you
You sure look good to me

Cause baby
These things you're doing believe
They hurt so bad
But it's worth all the misery

Don't you know that it's hurts so good
Don't you know that it's hurts so good
Don't you know that it's hurts so good
Hurts so good

And don't you know that it's hurts so good
Don't you know that it's hurts so good
Don't you know that it's hurts so good
Hurts so good

Ooh boy please don't ever
Take the heat off me
Cause it would hurt even more
If you'd ever leave
Even though sometimes
It's hard to me to bear
I make myself hold on
Cause it kills me I don't care

Cause baby I don't want you to ever quit
Ooh, it ain't no good 'til it
Hurts just a little bit

Don't you know that it's hurts so good
Don't you know that it's hurts so good
Don't you know that it's hurts so good
Hurts so good
