"It Don't Hurt" as written by Sheryl Crow and Jeff Trott....
It don't hurt like it did
I can sing my song again
It don't hurt like it did
I can sing my song again

Scraped the paper off the wall
I put down carpet in the hall
I left no trace of you at all
And I can sing my song again

I don't dream 'cause I don't sleep
The moon is hanging like your hat
The sun comes up well I don't see
Curtains tied up like a bat

The electric man looks good today
Well, maybe not, well, I'm trying hard
Trying hard to feel that way
The electric man's a good place to start

Took your paintings off the wall
That one of me that you call "doll"
I added on 'cause the house was feeling small
Now I can sing my song again

I don't think of you no more
Except for everyday or two
I don't think of you no more
Except for in between the sun and the moon

Packed up and moved out after all
Bulldozed the house and watched it fall
That blessed sight I still recall
I can sing my song again

I can sing my song again
It don't hurt like it did, it hurts worse
Who do I kid
Woo-ooh?

    General Commenti think the "electric man" part is about a vibrator, which (theoretically) you use when your single. she is trying to feel good about being single, but can't.

    General CommentIt's about getting over a relationship that was 'the one' for you, maybe a marriage. And left now with an empty house she does everything she can to move on, includng trying to pull other men "electric man looks good today". But despite all this she still misses her ex, & can't stop thinking about them.

    General CommentI love this song so much. I agree with lou's interpretation.

    "I don't dream, 'cause I don't sleep,"

    I was, for months, in this horrible habit of staying up until around 8am and then sleeping until around 5 or 6pm. lack of sleep, indeed.

    "it don't hurt like it did
    it hurts worse
    who do I kid?"

    after finally getting back on a schedule that is a bit better, I started thinking maybe I'm finally over it! ... but then the memories come back, and the reminders come flooding in...and I realize: nope. I miss the person something more awful than before. well, still I can say to myself "it don't hurt" but every once in awhile the "who do I kid?" starts ringing in my ears once more! haha.
