I would hold you in my arms
I would take the pain away
Thank you for all you've done
Forgive all your mistakes
There's nothing I wouldn't do
To hear your voice again
Sometimes I want to call you
But I know you won't be there
OOh, I'm sorry for blaming you
For everything I just couldn't do
And I've hurt myself, by hurting you.
Somedays I feel broke inside but I will not admit
Sometimes I just want to hide, cause it's you I miss
And it's so hard to say goodbye
When it comes to this
lovechyld74 answered Wednesday October 25 2006, 5:31 pm: During the Linda Perry/Christina Aguilera recording session of Back to Basics, Aguilera asked Perry to help her write a song about losing someone, as she felt that it was yet a subject to tackle in her music. Perry was very open with this idea and thought she could relate to it really well because she had just recently lost her father.
Linda Perry wrote out most of the lyrics to "Hurt" before showing it to Aguilera. Aguilera however thought it was too much of a personal song for Perry, because of many references to Perry's loss. Christina then decided she wanted to change some of the lyrics, so she took the song, and re-wrote many of the words to make it more appealing to any listener who lost a loved one in their life. Although it is not known if the original version of Perry's song was ever recorded, the one that made the album cut was the version co-written by both Aguilera and Perry [ lovechyld74's advice column | Ask lovechyld74 A Question ]
