Dwight Yoakam – Little Sister Lyrics

 

You’ve got your little ways to hurt me

You know just how to tear me up

And leave me in small pieces on the ground

You’ve got your little ways to hurt me

They’re not too big but they’re real tough

Just one cold look from you can knock me down

 

To look at you and me, no one would ever know

The pain that I’ve endured ’cause I won’t let it show

My friends would laugh out loud if they only knew

The truth about how I am just your lovesick fool

 

‘Cause you’ve got your little ways to hurt me

You know just how to tear me up

And leave me in small pieces on the ground

And you’ve got your little ways to hurt me

They’re not too big but they’re real tough

Just one cold look from you can knock me down

 

The sadness in my eyes should somehow be a clue

But no one here would ever suspect sweet little you

There’ve been rumors of the truth but I’ve kept it quiet

‘Cause I’m too ashamed to let them know you make me cry

 

And you’ve got your little ways to hurt me

You know just how to tear me up

And leave me in small pieces on the ground

You’ve got your little ways to hurt me

They’re not too big but they’re real tough

Just one cold look from you can knock me down

Yeah, your little ways can knock me to the ground
