Yesterday's News Just Hit Home Today

This song is by Johnny Paycheck and appears on the album Mr. Hag Told My Story (1980) and on the compilation album The Soul & The Edge: The Best Of Johnny Paycheck (2002).

Today a friend got through to me
I've been blind I couldn't see
'Cause my love was always standing in the way
Well I've been crazy
I've been blown
My good friends, they knew all along
Yesterdays news just hit home today

Well I've cried
Lord, and I've tried to stay on top of things
Never dreaming such a storm was on it's way
When you owned up to all those lies
I was the only one there that was surprised
Yesterdays news just hit home today

Well I guess the shock of learning that you've been a fool
Allows paranoia and insecurities to creep in
Now I'll tell you that in my mind our love honey
I thought would never end
You know being a fool is one thing
But not knowing you're a fool is another thing
Yesterdays news just hit home today

Well I've tried and I've tried to stay on top of things
Never dreaming such a storm was on it's way
When you owned up to all those lies
Honey I was the only fool there that was surprised
Yesterdays news just hit home today
