  • I've been pushed
    I've been shoved too long
    They even tried to buy my song
    But it ain't gonna be that way no more

    In my heart
    I believe it's true
    A man has gotta get at you
    Everybody wants to look the other day

    Yeah, tell me lies
    And place your lovin' arms around me

    And there's things a man must need
    And don't it make you, make you wanna
    Open up and bleed?
    Yeah, open up and bleed

    I've been lost
    I've been pushed too long
    I've been down harder than I've been too strong
    Yeah baby, gonna find me another way

    In my soul
    I believe it's true
    I didn't do what you wanted me too
    Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

    Yeah, tell me lies
    Place your lovin' all around me

    I need it 'round me

    I've been pushed
    And I know it so
    Even my heart has been pushed, I know
    Everybody wants to look the other way

    In my soul
    I believe it's healed
    And in my heart there's a hole so deep
    Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

    Yeah, tell me lies
    Place your lovin' all around me

    And there's things a man must need
    And don't it make you, make you wanna
