Hyman, Phyllis - Living In Confusion Lyrics




I believed in you
I thought you could do no wrong
Until I saw one day
That you were stringing me along
Played me for a fool
You used me once too much
I'm in so much pain
Here I am again

Trust is a hard thing
To come by these days
You build me up
To let down
Got me spinning around
I wish I knew
Where you were coming from
You told me you loved me
I thought I was your only one

Seems like I'm always going through changes
Living in confusion
Confusion, confusion
Seems like I'm always going through changes
Living in confusion, confusion

I had faith in you
Just knew you wouldn't hurt me
But you played a game
You should be ashamed
I let my guard down
I was so vulnerable
I hope you had your fun
Don't you know I was loyal to you

Truth is a hard thing
To come by these days
You build me up to break me down
Got me spinning around
I wish I knew where you were coming from
You told me you loved me
I thought I was only one

Seems like I'm always going through changes
Living in confusion
Confusion, confusion
Seems like I'm always going through changes
Living in confusion
Confusion

I deserve better
I'm not gonna take no more
You build me up to let me down
Got me spinning around
I'm gonna find
Find me somebody new
A love I can count on
Loving you see it ain't you
Oh

Seems like I'm always going through changes
Living in confusion
Confusion, confusion
Seems like I'm always going through changes
Living in confusion

    Angel Johnson i think she committed suicide

    Angel Johnson

    Alexander Phillips so sad i wonder why

    Alexander Phillips

    Angel Johnson yes definitely so sad. But I think she wanted to find love and never find it. I seen alot of her interviews saying she wanted to find love but never could

    Angel Johnson

    Alexander Phillips yeah ahe was in a class all by herself my favorite song of her is the answer is you

    Dianne

    Angel Johnson Look at TVOne unsung. Phyllis Hyman was dropped from her record label. She had problems in her love life. She was bipolar and she tried to self medicate. You probably can find this on YouTube.

  49. Rita Walker

    White chocolate is the best.

    Kelly Goines

    😊😊😊 white chocolate

  50. Rita Walker

    its dumb that most people like milk chocolate more than white chocolate because white chocolate has more flavor than milk chocolate but i like them both equally but honestly white chocolate tastes better than milk chocolate but i like them both equally.

    Kelly Goines

    I don't like the dark chocolate it's way to bitter.

  51. Rita Walker

    White Chocolate is my favorite.

  52. Melvin Lawson

    what can i say it's one of the few a little confusion is good thing

  53. Lewis Anderson

    I Love me some PHYLLIS!!!

    Janice Speed

    Me too Lewis!

  54. DeBorah Roberts

    Living in confusion describes me. I give all of me and always end up hurt and alone. Not lonely but alone. I am very compassionate like Phyllis Hyman was. God listens and watch over special people like us.

    Nikia Simmons

    I'm definitely in this number... Love Too Hard Give My Heart Mind Body and Soul only to constantly HURT... OVER AND OVER AGAIN😢😢

    Angel Roses 68

    @Stephanie Brooks me too 17 now 53 this song is all too true! 😭😭

    That Libra Lady!!!!!! King

    I'm in that same crowd. Love, and trust too soon. Constantly giving, all we ask for is love, respect, and quality time. But I'm not taking it anymore, have to cut my guy now.

    Janice Speed

    Everyone that's ever been in love can relate to the song. Loved her hats too. Can anyone imagine a band in heaven? I can't....too intense! 🌋

    I feel so sad

  57. William Cooper

    The most powerful song of her career. If you listen carefully to the last minutes of the song, it was if she were crying for help. A tragically beautiful song.

    Janice Speed

    I think she knew she was dying. Just like Minnie R.

    Martin Smith

    She cried for help through her music....one the greatest indeed.... you just never know

    dayzour123

    @Kevin Mansell read her book she plan her own death she really did kill herself

    Just Timm

    In your opinion. PH has many powerful songs that's the magic of Phyllis Hyman.

    Tantamani

    @William Cooper Yes. It’s really hits when listening to her songs after her death and learning she had Bi-polar disorder how clear it was in her songs. “Seems like I’m always going through changes, living in confusion”

  58. Star Clarke

    still one of my favorite songs to this day

    Lewis Anderson

    Star Clarke hey I have to say Phyllis Hyman is my favorite singer she so special to me.
