Christina Aguilera - Hurt

Seems like it was yesterday when I saw your face
You told me how proud you were but I walked away
If only I knew what I know today
Ooh, Oooh...

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 won't 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
Oooh, Yeah...

Would you tell me I was wrong?
Would you help me understand?
Are you looking down upon me?
Are you proud of who I am?
There's nothing I wouldn't do
To have this one more chance
To look into your eyes
And see you looking back

OOh, I'm sorry for blaming you
For everything I just couldn't do
And I've hurt myself, Oooh...

If I had just one more day
I would tell you how much
That I've missed you since
You've been away.
Oooh, It's dangerous
So out of line...
To try and turn back time...

I'm sorry for blaming you
For everything I just couldn't do
And I've hurt myself...

By hurting you...

"Hurt" is a pop ballad written by Christina Aguilera, Linda Perry and Mark Ronson for Aguilera's third studio album, Back to Basics. It was released as the album's second single in late 2006. The song's lyrical content describes how one deals with the loss of a loved one, and it has received praise from pop music critics. Aguilera performed the song live at the 2006 MTV Video Music Awards. While the song had moderate success in the U.S., it became a huge hit across Europe and her biggest to date since Beautiful. Critical Reception "Hurt" was generally very well-received by contemporary pop music critics. Billboard commented that Aguilera's "[vocals] relate the pain of moving past a relationship in ruins is daunting", and that "this potential Grammy Award contender" has "a melody and lush production that carries [the song] into the clouds. Blogcritics claimed that song's "slow opening to a soft piano all the way to the spine-tingling bridge" is "one weeper of a ballad", and that Aguilera's "power-belting" vocals were "better than ever". Top 40 reviewer Bill Lamb gave the song five stars, saying "a single piano with the backing of strings gives way to one of the most technically stunning voices in pop music singing words of pain, guilt, and grief in the loss of a loved one". Trivia Despite the name, this song is not a cover of the song made famous by Nine Inch Nails and Johnny Cash.
