Suzy Bogguss — Nobody Love, Nobody Gets Hurt lyrics

She was all alone at half-past four
At an all-night small-town convenience store
When he walked in and locked the door behind him.
She ducked down behind the counter
He said "Get up, I know you're down there
I got a gun. Just hold on, I'll find it. "
He fumbled through the pockets of his faded denim jacket
Handed her a note and said, "You'd better do exactly what it says..."
And she read:

"Nobody love, and nobody gets hurt."
She looked at him with a nervous grin
She pointed to that word
He said "What the hell? I can't spell
But you know what I meant. "
She said "Yeah,
But that ain't what you said. "

She said "I don't think you wanna do this
Sounds to me like there's more to it. "
He said "Spare your views on my abusive childhood.
Cause the last time I saw my old man
Was in a photograph in our garbage can
He never gave a damn, so tell me why I should.
And you don't know the half of all the demons that I've battled
You ain't gonna save me with your mindless psychobabble
I'm damaged goods. "

"Nobody love, and nobody gets hurt."
And as he walked away in the pouring rain
She still could hear that word
He said "What the hell? I can't spell
But you know what I meant. "
She said "Yeah,
But that ain't what you said. "

She said "Yeah,
But that ain't what you said. "
