Right Where It Counts


We're alone in my room playin' axis and doom And now you're tellin' me goodbye So you want us apart Stick a knife in my heart And a tear welling up in my eye But let me remind how much you have been blind to You've totally changed me, Mixed me up, rearranged me My hair how you like Quit hanging with Mike And now you've repaid me By tryin' to splay me I want you to know That you hit me too low And that I can barely breathe If I told you that I'm bleeding inside Would you let me get off my knees? [That really hurts!] (Right where it counts) That's where you hit me (Right where it counts) I'm on my knees (Right where it counts) Stop kicking me, please! Right where it counts I used to play football I once was a goof ball But you didn't like that (no you didn't like that) The guys call me whipped My popularities slipped Because you just wanted a doormat We shut out our friends And I'd do it again If you and I could get back on the highway I thought we'd share our life You husband me wife But now I'm confused I'm battered, and I'm bruised Why are you so mean Now you've ruptured my spleen And my lowest extremities [That's pretty low] If we were alone And your parents weren't home I'd yell a hundred obscenities (Right where it counts) That's where you hit me (Right where it counts) I'm on my knees (Right where it counts) Stop kicking me, please! Right where it counts [Oh, oh, right to the bridge] I really really loved you And this is what you do But baby I can love you Right through the pain Is this the way you show me How much you love me? Or is there really something You're trying to say? [You trying to say something? (Right where it counts) That's where you hit me (Right where it counts) I'm on my knees (Right where it counts) Stop kicking me, please! Right where it counts [Ow!] Right where it counts (My voice is high.) Right where it counts (high...) Right where it counts (high...) Right where it count
