I Want You To Hurt Like I Do Lyrics

Artist: Randy Newman
Album: Land Of Dreams

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 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, honest I do"

If I had one wish
One dream I knew would come true
I'd want to speak to all the people of the world
I'd get up there, I'd get up there on that platform
First I'd sing a song or two you know I would
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
Well, you know
And things don't always, 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, honest I do"

I can really relate to the Divorce piece of this...but I think he's trying to tell us we all hurt, and we all feel and we are all human....It's better to feel someones pain than to ignore it...

Misery loves company. That's the premise.

Rather than resolving our own issues, we often inflict our pain on others to make them equally miserable. Easier to bring others down to your misery rather than pull yourself out of it.

The irony is that no one would say such a thing to their own son, yet parents pass personal issues along to their children all the time.

Double the irony in the second verse, where Mr. Newman nearly states that the song title itself explains why he is a singer/songwriter
