Linda Ronstadt - I Keep It Hid Lyrics




Deep down inside
I know I still love him
But he'll never know
Cause I'll never tell

I'll confide that I'm thinking of him
And wishing him well
I can't walk up to him and say to him

Baby, what you been doing
I still love you like I did
You know, nothing's really changed here
But being the way I am
I keep it hid

Lately I've seen
That look in his eyes
That just breaks my heart
He needs me so
To lean on at this moment
Oh why can't I walk up to that old love of mine and say

Baby, what you been doing
I still love you like I did
You know, nothing's really changed here
But being the way I am
I keep it hid

Maybe someday I'll throw off my foolish pride
This ain't so good
Watching him die this way
Cause he's the same guy inside
Oh why can't I walk up to that old love of mine and say

Baby, what you been doing
I still love you like I did
You know, nothing's really changed here
But being the way I am
I keep it hid

Linda Ronstadt I Keep It Hid Comments
  1. MarkRZ89

    OMG that STUNNING voice!
    Linda and I had the same hairdresser in Tucson Arizona (Where we are both from) and I would intentionally schedule my appt just before or after her's so I would see her! She was ALWAYS VERY SWEET to me and a GENUINELY GOOD PERSON! I took this CD with me once and she graciously autographed it for me!
    LOVE LOVE LOVE Linda!

  2. Don

    a beautiful Jimmy Webb tune.. and her voice just grabs you by the heart strings..and make it ache ... whatever that means.. but she is a generational singer.. glorious

  3. Johnny Usman

    Her voice is one of a kind. How she can sing so low then belt those high notes the next is so beyond me.

  4. GL AnnapolisTeam

    Nice rendition. Mary Wilson of the Supremes also did a good version of this song on the Supremes album they did with Jimmy Webb.

  5. Mark Springer

    Baby what you been dojng?? Love the short Bob cut.

  6. Frankie C

    It was recorded and released in 1968 by the Vogues.I don`t know if anyone recorded it prior to that.Linda kills it(in a good way!),I`ll tell you that.

    Mark Springer

    wynonie harris she is amazing for sure. I am so happy that we have you tube videos which provides my daily dose of music that keeps me in the clouds.

  7. Mark Springer

    why can't you walk up to him and say baby what you been doing. I'm sure he has needed you so for a long time. I'm certain that he loves you too.

  8. Harbor Heart

    Killer vocals.

    Deep down inside
    I know I still love him
    But he'll never know
    Cause I'll never tell
    I'll confide that I'm thinking of him
    And wishing him well
    I can't walk up to him and say to him
    Baby, what you been doing
    I still love you like I did
    You know, nothing's really changed here
    But being the way I am
    I keep it hid
    Lately I've seen
    That look in his eyes
    That just breaks my heart
    He needs me so
    To lean on at this moment
    Oh why can't I walk up to that old love of mine and say
    Baby, what you been doing
    I still love you like I did
    You know, nothing's really changed here
    But being the way I am

    OH my! PERFECTION!

  11. Amanda Belscamper

    Does anyone know where to find sheet music for this song?

  12. bobareebop

    Amazing Jimmy Webb song.

  13. bobareebop

    There's SO much to this song. The change in meter from three to two, the amazing arrangement itself, the key change before the third verse, the poignancy of the lyric...on and on. The gospel choir and the string part on the third chorus, wow! Thanks for the post!

    Adrian Canales

    bobareebop listen to the live version, also on YouTube-- blows me away!
