"Inside Job" as written by and Ry Cooder John Hiatt....
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
