It Hit Home

This song is by Suzanne Vega.

No one admits they ever cry in public
Lately we all do because we must
We do because a man stands at
The bottom of a building
Looking for his brothers body in the dust

It hit home
It still does
It hits home

It makes me feel a pain within my person
Like the breaking of a heart or of a bone
To think about that day and to imagine
Every moment of my neighbors
In that devastated place close to my own

It hit home
It still does
It hits home

I am no great patriot
I never wear the flag
And I only sing the songs that I'm supposed to in a crowd
But if I travel to Chicago or just take the train downtown
I see the grace that's under pressure, that's what I report out loud

It hit home
It still does
It hits home

People when they're hungry become crazy
If it's a baby or a nation we discuss
Anger turns to action turns to danger
We get mean, and feel that living
Isn't worth much, and it's either them or us

It hit home
It still does
It hits home

I am no great patriot
I never wear the flag
And I only sing the songs that I'm supposed to in a crowd
But if I travel to Chicago or just take the train downtown
I see the grace that's under pressure, that's what I report out loud

It hit home
It still does
It hits home
