unforgiven lyrics – joe cocker

i don’t wanna be here, i don’t wanna be here at all
stuck in my head, trapped inside these walls
so much regret, so much pain
i’m drowning slowly in the mess that i’ve made
i don’t wanna be here, i don’t wanna be here at all

can i let it go or i will it haunt my soul?
how did i get this way? god, i feel so afraid
will i’ll be a better man, when i’ll learn to understand?
i can’t keep on living unforgiven

didn’t wanna hurt you, didn’t wanna hurt you at all
i took you so high just to let you fall
can i pick up the pieces of our life?
start it over, give me one more try
didn’t wanna hurt you, didn’t wanna hurt you at all

can i let it go or i will it haunt my soul?
how did i get this way? god, i feel so afraid
i’ll be a better man, when i’ll learn to understand
i can’t keep on living unforgiven

i’m so desperate to live, i’m desperate to breathe
so much to give, so much i wanna be
won’t let my mistakes take you away from me

can i let it go or i will it haunt my soul?

can i let it go or i will it haunt my soul?
how did i get this way? god, i feel so afraid
will i’ll be a better man, when i’ll learn to understand?
i can’t keep on living unforgiven, can’t keep on living unforgiven

i don’t wanna be here, i don’t wanna be here at all
