Baby let me set you down

You look so troubled and I think I know

Just when you think you've come around

There you go

Now I know the business of the heart

And it'll get you anyway it can

You need someone to walk with in the dark well

I'm your man

I go to the trouble like a magnet

That's where I'll be

Trouble is just a place to sing

It's what you need

I swear you look like you're in jail

And all at once you're halfway out the door

One foot dancing, one foot nailed

To the floor

Chasing those circles in the ground

The same old shit is still the same old lie

Just when you think you've got it down

Watch it fly

I go to the trouble like a light

Or like a dare

Trouble is just a friend to me, I know

It'll always be there

It's really hard to make your peace

So give me some credit for the hell I've paid

This world's a blessing and a beast


So come on baby let me show you how

The less you know the more I comprehend

You don't have to drag me down

I descend

I go to the trouble and I like it

That's where I'll be

Trouble is just like love, if it's half the way

It's all I can see

And it's just what you need
