  • Sometimes I'm up, sometimes I'm down
    Sometimes I'm fallin' on the ground
    How do you hide, how do you hide your love?

    Now look here, baby, it sure looks sweet
    In the sleep time, out in the street
    Why do you hide, why do you hide your love?
    Why do you hide, baby, why do you hide your love?

    Alright oh
    Yeah

    Oh, been a sick man, I wanna cry
    Lord, I'm a drunk man, but now I'm dry
    Why do you hide, why do you hide your love?

    Now look here, baby, you sure look cheap
    I make money seven days a week
    Why do you hide, why do you hide your love?
    Why do you hide, baby, hide from the man that you love?
    Come on, baby, hurry up

    Oh, yeah, oh, yeah, oh, yeah, oh, yeah
    Why do you hide, why do you hide your love? Alright

    Come on, come on, come out
    Come on, I want, I want

    Oh, babe, I'm reachin', reachin' high
    Oh, yeah, I'm fallin' out of the sky
    Why do you hide, hide from the man that you love?
    Why do you hide, baby, why do you hide your love?

    Oh yeah, oh yeah, oh yeah, oh yeah
    Why do you hide, why do you hide your love?
    Why do you hide it, baby, hide from the man that you love
    That you love? Well, well, well, well Writer/s: Keith Richards, Mick Jagger

  • Tod Neil Page from Santa Cruz , CaJust wow, damn! Fok me , OMG. I just listened to Hide Your Love 2020 and it stopped me mid stride and Gob Smacked me most seriously. Gabbed the nearest pair of ears and had them listen...same effect. Then I saw the OTHER VERSION ...too much. Different cause it builds from the first bar and it took me along for the ride. The lead guitar is the real treat. Mick Taylor was on fire, it doesn’t get much better for straight rock and roll. I love Goats Head Soup and The Stones. What a great set of songs. Thanks for all this Mick. Your fingerprints are all over this gift. Just wow, fok me , damn! , OMG what a great record!
  • George from Little Rock, ArThe beginning of this song sounds like the beginning of Queen's Your My Best Friend. I wonder if Queen "borrowed" the piano riff.
    I think that this song is underated. It took me years to discover it and now it is one of my favorite rolling stones songs.
  • Chelsea from Nyc, OrTaylor likes this tune from "Goat's Head Soup".
