Home demo version 3
Protection from a hurting heart
But this protection's gonna tear you apart
Can't get protection, protection from a broken heart
The above lyrics are for an acoustic home demo of PROTECTION recorded at Bruce Springsteen's home in Holmdel, NJ, sometime between January and June 1979. It can be found on The Lost Masters Vol. 8 (Labour Of Love) [track 03] bootleg. Note that home demo version 3 and home demo version 4 are indexed as a single track on this bootleg release.
Thanks Jake (ol'catfishinthelake at BTX and Greasy Lake) for the lyrics help.
