about

"Misunderstood" was written during the 2020 pandemic and black lives matter movement. After seeing many black men killed over the past few years it has left indignant feelings in me with the need to write this song and express what it's like to be wrongfully profiled, targeted, and misunderstood.

lyrics

Lyrics by Donnavon Morgan

[Intro hook]

Don't you hate it when you're misunderstood
When people don't understand

[1st Verse]
Don't you hate it when they're judging you
(Oh, yes I do)
Don't you hate it when the world is looking right at you
(Oh, yes I do)
I get alarmed by the stereotypes
I'm so bothered by the look in their eyes
Just don't feel right, I need some peace of mind.

[B-section]
Oh, what are you looking at?
A young brother with a plan
Guess I must've broke a law, and now I'm a criminal.

[Hook]
Don't you hate it when you're misunderstood
When people don't understand
Don't you hate it when you're misunderstood
When people don't understand

[2nd Verse]
I hate it when they're telling their lies on me
And I hate it when the world believes every word they say
I get annoyed by their pretty little lies
I'm so bothered by the stereotypes
How do you think I feel, when they don't understand

[B-section]
Oh, what are you looking at?
A young brother with a plan
Guess I must've broke a law, and now I'm a criminal.

[Hook]
Don't you hate it when you're misunderstood
When people don't understand
Don't you hate it when you're misunderstood
When people don't understand
