John Hiatt – Hurt My Baby lyrics

No need to be expressive
Anyone can see.
The injury was permanent
The wound was really deep.
Doesn't talk about it much
I listen when she does.
And when she's
In that distant place
I know it's just because.

Somebody hurt my baby,
Somebody hurt my girl,
Somebody hurt my baby,
Somebody hurt somebody
In this mean old world

She's developed
All these nervous ticks
To prove she's still alive.
Does 90 down to 0
Back in overdrive.
Her sleep
Is just a nightmare state
She really gets no rest
Till someone
Has come forward
Till one of us confess

Somebody hurt my baby
Somebody hurt my girl
Somebody hurt my baby
Somebody hurt somebody
In this mean old world

Somebody hurt my baby
Somebody hurt my girl
Somebody hurt my baby
Somebody hurt somebody
In this mean old world
