I COULD BEAT MYSELF
    Ooh, I'm hurting, bad,
    Ooh, I'm hurting.

    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 in a while,
    dinner together under fancy style.
    Show her a life that's all worth while,
    now I guess I gotta walk an extra mile.

    I could beat myself, ah yeah,
    ooh yeah, I could beat myself.

    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.

    Although I don't wanna lie, I'm gonna do this once.
    See my reputation sinking in a distance,
    If they knew the truth that really existed,
    then my little sanity would be wasted.

    I could beat myself, ahh yeah,
    I could beat myself, oh lord.

    Ooh, I'm hurting bad,
    ooh, I'm hurting.

    Now I'm gonna put the blame on the person that told me,
    they should realize that it's gonna,
    destroy my postition,
    remember I'm a name brand.
    Though I really want to hear a little news now and then.
    This is not what I expect to hear from my friend,
    I'm dissappointed, but now I've got to say,
    I should have held her tight every once in a while,
    take her to dinner under fancy style.
    Show her a life that was all worth while,
    now I know I gotta walk an extra mile.

    I could beat myself ahh yeah,
    I could beat myself, oh lord.
    I could beat myself, I could beat myself,
    over and over and over again.

    Ooh, hurting inside,
    I could beat myself, really, really,
    I could beat myself, oh yeah.
    I could beat myself, over and over again.

    Only if I could turn back the hands of time,
    I could show how a love can shine.
    I don't know what I wanna tell you,
    But I wanna tell you something real, real good now.
    Something to make you wanna shiver ...
