The Big Hurt
Tribeca Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

You've been driving through the rain for a decade,
haunted by your mothers expectations
I've been chasing my dads ghost
I've been talking in my sleep for half a century
We were the perfect match we burnt like firecrackers in the night
we stood together separate lies guided only by the lights guided only by the real thrills, but baby
Here comes the big hurt here comes my body, here comes my body
Here comes the big hurt here comes my body, it's a twentieth century habit when I've got to you my heart broke in two
Doomed by nature we both knew how the saga would endbut no tears no weary eyes no shoulders highcause after all we been sliding for so long, but baby
Here comes the big hurt here comes my body, here comes my body
Here comes the big hurt here comes my body, it's a twentieth century habit when I've got to you my heart broke in two
Here comes the big hurt here comes my body, here comes my body
Here comes the big hurt here comes my body, it's a twentieth century habit when I've got to you my heart broke in two




Here comes the, Here comes the (hurt)
Hurt
