I Want You to Hurt Like I Do by Randy Newman

April 16, 1989

I ran out on my children And I ran out on my wife Gonna run out on you too, baby I done it all my life. Everybody cried the night I left Well, almost everybody did My little boy just hung his head And I put my arm around his little shoulder And this is what I said: "Sonny, I just want you to hurt like I do I just want you to hurt like I do I just want you to hurt like I do Honest I do Honest I do." If I had one wish One dream I knew would come true I'd want to speak to all of the people of the world I'd get up there on that platform First I'd sing a song or two Then I'll tell you what I'd do. I'd talk to the people and I'd say: "It's a rough rough world It's a tough tough world And things don't always go the way we plan. But there's one thing,

one thing we all have in common And it's something everyone can understand : ( All over the world sing along ) I just want you to hurt like I do I just want you to hurt like I do I just want you to hurt like I do Honest I do Honest I do." From the album, "Land of Dreams." 1988 Twice as Nice Music ASCAP. All rights reserved. Used by permission.
