John Sloman version

At the age of eighteen
I had had enough
And by twenty one
I decided to get tough
And then I found the guard
Was still too rough

And I've been hurt
Ever since that day
I've been hurt and I've lost my way
I still think I have a chance
To find your love

Well, I tried to love you
One day at a time
Each day waiting
Hoping for the sign
It was clear I needed luck
More than this time

And I've been hurt
Ever since that day
I've been hurt, well, I've lost my way
I still think I have a chance
To make you mine

My empty heart is
Counting all the ways
Fire and desire
Sat and count days
Will you, won't you
When and where
Do you, don't you, do I care
That same eternal question
Is always there
It's always there

And I've been hurt
Ever since that day
I've been hurt and I've lost my way
I still think I have a chance
To make you mine

And I've been hurt
Ever since that day
I've been hurt and I've lost my way
I still think I have a chance
To make you mine

I've been hurt
And I've lost my way



John Lawton version

Whoah, don't you know
I've been hurt
Oh yeah, don't you know
I've been hurt
Oh babe, you know
You're doin' me wrong, yeah

At the age of eighteen
I had had enough
And by twenty one
I decided to get tough
And then I found the guard 
Was still too rough

Oh yeah, I've been hurt
Ever since that day
I've been hurt
And I've lost my way
I still think I have a chance
To try your love

Well, I tried to love you
One day at a time
Each day waitin'
Hopin' for the sign
It was clear I needed luck
More than this time

Oh yeah, I've been hurt
Ever since that day
I've been hurt
And I've lost my way
I still think I have a chance
To make you mine

My empty heart is
Countin' all the ways
Fire and desire
Sat and count the days
Will you, won't you
When and where
Do you, don't you, do I care
That same eternal question
Is always there

Oh yeah, I've been hurt
Ever since that day
I've been hurt
And I've lost my way
I still think I have a chance
To try your love

My empty heart is
Countin' all the ways
Fire and desire
Sat and count the days
Will you, won't you
When and where
Do you, don't you, do I care
That same eternal question
Is always there

Oh yeah, I've been hurt
Ever since that day
I've been hurt
And I've lost my way
I still think I have a chance
To try your love

Oh, I've been hurt
And ver since that day
I've been hurt
And I've lost my way
I still think I have a chance
To try your love

Oh yeah, I've been hurt
Ever since that day
I've been hurt
And I've lost my way
I still think I have a chance
To try your love

I've been hurt
And I've lost my way
