Lyrics
Oh baby, oh, oh baby
Oh, oh babe

Love was always supposed to be
Something wonderful to me
To watch it grow inside yourself
To feel your heart beside itself

Sometimes it hurts to love so bad
When you know you’ve given all you can
Sometimes it hurts to even laugh
You do your best but it’s still much too sad
Sometimes the pain is just too much, oh, oh
And it hurts like hell, that’s the way it feels

True love it has no hiding place
It’s not something you just put away
It’s always there inside of you
Oh, and it shows in everything you do

Sometimes it hurts to love so bad
When you know you’ve given it your best
Sometimes it hurts to even laugh
You feel a thousand miles from happiness
Sometimes the pain is just too much
And it hurts like hell, that’s the way it feels, oh, oh

Here we are, the two of us
So full of love, so little trust
But dying for some tenderness
Oh, but too afraid to take the step

Sometimes it hurts to love so bad
When you know what it can put you through
Sometimes it hurts to even laugh
There’s nothing funny if it’s killing you
Sometimes the pain, oh, is just too much
And it hurts like hell, that’s the way it feels

I know if there is any chance
For us to find our happiness
We’ve got to learn to let it go
Oh, oh, forgot all the pain we knew

Sometimes, sometimes it hurts so bad, baby  (sometimes it hurts to love so bad)
Sometimes it hurts to even laugh, oh, oh, oh  (sometimes it hurts it hurts to even laugh)
And it hurts like hell, that’s the way
Oh baby, that’s the way it feels, yeah

Català – Fa Un Mal Bestial
Oh noi, oh, oh noi
Oh, oh noi

L’amor sempre s’ha suposat que era
Una cosa meravellosa per a mi
Per veure’l créixer dins teu
Per sentir el teu cor fora de si mateix

A vegades fa mal estimar tant
Quan saps que has donat tot allò que podies
A vegades fa mal fins i tot riure
Ho fas el millor que pots però encara és massa trist
A vegades el dolor és, senzillament, massa, oh, oh
I fa un mal bestial, és així com et sents

L’amor veritable no té lloc on amagar-se
No és una cosa que puguis empassar-te
Sempre està allà, dins teu
Oh, i es nota en tot el que fas

A vegades fa mal estimar tant
Quan saps que has donat el millor de tu
A vegades fa mal fins i tot riure
Et sents a milers de quilòmetres de la felicitat
A vegades el dolor és, senzillament, massa
I fa un mal bestial, és així com et sents, oh, oh

Aquí estem, nosaltres dos
Tan plens d’amor, amb tant poca confiança
Però delerosos d’una mica de tendresa
Oh, però massa espantats per a fer el pas

A vegades fa mal estimar tant
Quan saps per el que pot fer-te passar
A vegades fa mal fins i tot riure
No te cap gràcia si t’està matant
A vegades el dolor, oh, és, senzillament, massa
I fa un mal bestial, és així com et sents

Sé que si hi ha cap possibilitat
De que trobem la nostra felicitat
Hem d’aprendre a oblidar-ho
Oh, oh, oblidar tot el dolor que hem passat

A vegades, a vegades fa mal molt, noi  (a vegades fa mal estimar tant)
A vegades fa mal fins i tot riure, oh, oh, oh  (a vegades fa mal fins i tot riure)
I fa un mal bestial, és així
Oh noi, és així com et sents, sí
