Hurt Before lyrics

The Corrs
Thumbnail

She's a girl in a world, she's moving as fast as she goes
Loves her mum and her dad, the only secure that she knows
But at night, she's alone, she's dreaming of somebody new
Her someone for to hold, she's praying the dream will come true

Show me the way - show me, show me how
Help me be brave - for love
Show me the way - show me, tell me how
What do you say

There's a pain in her heart, she's trying so hard to unwind
Makes her cry in the night, when visions so real make her blind
Wants to break through the fear
Erasing the scars from within
Start a new kind of being, she's down and she's praying again

Show me the way - show me, show me how
Help me be brave - for love
Show me the way - show me, tell me how
What do you say

You see she's...
Turning the key, (turning the key) unlocking the door
Embracing the rollercoaster world
Stepping outside, (stepping outside)with body and soul
Taking whatever future holds
Turning the key, (turning the key) unlocking the door
Embracing the rollercoaster world
Take it in stride, (take it in stride) you're just twenty-five
You know we've all been hurt before

[Instrumental - Violin solo]

You see she's...
Turning the key, (turning the key) unlocking the door (unlocking the door)
Embracing the rollercoaster world
Stepping outside, (stepping outside) with body and soul (body and soul)
Taking whatever future holds
Turning the key, (turning the key) unlocking the door (unlocking the door)
Embracing the rollercoaster world
Take it in stride, (take it in stride) you're just twenty-five
You know we've all been hurt before
Yeah we've all been hurt before
So you're not alone... no...
You're not alone...

Song Details

Hurt Before by Irish band, The Corrs, was released in 2000 as part of their album In Blue. The song delves into the complex emotions of love, heartbreak, and the fear of being hurt again.

The song's lyrics paint a vivid picture of a person who has experienced past heartbreak and is now dealing with the scars left behind. She reflects on the pain she's endured in previous relationships, acknowledging her vulnerability and the lingering fear that history may repeat itself.

Despite this, there is also a glimmer of hope in the song and she acknowledges the possibility of finding love again but is cautious, hesitant to expose her heart to potential harm. There is a sense of emotional resilience as the singer navigates the complex nature of past hurts while still hoping for a genuine connection.
