"Permanent Hurt" as written by and John Hiatt....
What is that fallin out of your eyes
What is that rollin on down your shirt
Thunder and lightening from
a bloodshot sky
This time its lookin like a permanent hurt

What is that lipstick up on his sleeve
Where's the forgiveness that's stronger
than dirt
Can't get the words out when you ask
him to leave
This time its lookin like a
permanent hurt

A permanent hurt, yeah
A permanent hurt
The pain and the memories do the
dirty work
Promises broken, hearts on red alert
The surface will heal but it's feelin' like a
Permanent hurt

What were you thinkin' when you
fell in love
What were you thinkin' in that little black skirt
Bet you a rainbow you weren't thinkin' of
Scuffin your heels up on a
permanent hurt

It's all temporary like the big book says
Ashes to ashes, baby, dust to dust
Something gets scary, someone turns
their head
Somebody winds up with a
permanent hurt

A permanent hurt, yeah
A permanent hurt
The pain and the memories do the
dirty work
Promises broken, hearts on red alert
The surface will heal but it's feelin' like a
Permanent hurt
