John Hiatt – Inside Job lyrics

You took it to heart

That is my love

And I thank heaven that I found you

I thank the stars above

The way that it happened

Well it might sound strange

But after the hurting is all done

There comes a change



So I went down into myself

Where any fool could see

All the love I had to give you

Wasn't getting out of me



It was an inside job

Baby we worked it out

It was an inside job

Baby we worked it out



I didn't know just what was wrong

All of my lights went out when you were gone

I called and you came

Right to my side

But you couldn't help me, sweet baby

It was my pride



So I went down into myself

Where any fool could see

All the love I had to give you

Wasn't getting out of me



It was an inside job

Baby we worked it out

It was an inside job

Baby we worked it out



Lost and alone, but now I've found

Well, it's from the inside out

The walls come tumblin' down

I didn't surrender, but now I see

Baby when I turn my love over

Sweet love comes back to me



So I went down into myself

Where any fool could see

All the love I had to give you

Wasn't gettin' out of me



It was an inside job

Baby we worked it out

It was an in inside job

Baby we worked it out
