Hurt My Baby
written by John Hiatt

No need to be explicit
Anyone can see
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 ol’ world

She’s developed all these nervous ticks
To prove she’s still alive
Does ninety down to zero
Back in over drive
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 ol’ world

Somebody hurt my baby
Somebody hurt my girl
Somebody hurt my baby
Somebody hurt somebody in this mean ol’ world
