Trouble 03:49
All I ever see is trouble And trouble always seems to find me Well how on earth can you make it better If it was never meant to be Well I can hardly stand it Just to see my world run dry With all this mass confusion Here to open up my eyes Nobody could, nobody could, nobody, no Could see these things the way that I do Nobody could, nobody could, nobody, no Could see these things the way that I do Nobody could, nobody could, nobody, no Turn your face sweet darling Let your tears run dry There's always a resolution To the things that make you cry Well I can't understand it If love is all you need Why this conversation Should ever have to be Nobody could, nobody could, nobody, no Could see these things the way that I do Nobody could, no, nobody could, nobody, no Could see these things the way that I do Nobody could, nobody could, nobody, no All I ever see is trouble And trouble always seems to find me Well how on earth can you make it better If it was never meant to be Well I can't understand it If love is all you need Why this conversation Should ever have to be Nobody could, nobody could, nobody, no Could see these things the way that I do Nobody could, oh nobody could, nobody, no Could see these things the way that I do Nobody could, no, nobody could, nobody, no Nobody could, oh nobody could, nobody, oo-ya Nobody could, no, nobody could, no, oh, oh ya Nobody could, oh nobody could, nobody, no Could see these things the way that I do

Move on, move on Little tomcat move on You know the way You know the way Back, back to your home Too much time Being out alone Too many ways And too many homes Ah-ah sweet love in your eyes You know the way to make it You know the way to try Ah-ah sweet love in your eyes I know you can It's all, it's all, it's all In your hands Too bad, too bad Yes it's really too bad When a love When a love Turns out to be so sad It ain't a crime To lose your way Ain't nothin' wrong With hearin' you say Ah-ah sweet love in your eyes You know the way to make it You know the way to try Ah-ah sweet love in your eyes I know you can It's all, it's all, it's all In your hands If somebody be lonely tonight It don't seem fair No it don't seem right All I need is some Sweet love in your eyes On board, on board Just get on board It ain't nothin' It ain't nothin' We can't afford Too much time Being out alone Too many ways And too many homes Ah-ah sweet love in your eyes You know the way to make it You know the way to try Ah-ah sweet love in your eyes I know you can It's all, it's all, it's all In your hands

Way back then Do you remember Way back then Do you recall Late nights and wipeout Were number one And everything was something We could rise above And all there was to give away Was your love Where are we going And where have we gone Movin' by And never knowin' Where we are going And where we have gone Way back then Do you remember Way back then Do you recall Spoonful of daydreams Could fill your cup And every little lovin' feeling Tied you up And all that we were thinkin' of Was love Where are we going And where have we gone Movin' by And never knowin' Where we are going And where we have gone Where are we going And where have we gone Movin' by And never knowin' Where are we going And where we have gone

Looking through some files In a photographic folder You came across my mind Back to the house With the racetrack on the corner Right in the middle Of the drive-in world uptown You were much older You got my name I got your number But I was just my mother's Helpless daughter You were Walking me home Walking me home Walking me home Walking me home Walking me home Walking me home That night Never did I once Try to be the party-ender And never could I lie Wearing high-heeled shoes Like a pigeon-toed pretender Waiting for someone Just to fall right from the sky And be my life saver You were a dream I wasn't dreaming But how could I keep myself From not believing You were Walking me home Walking me home Walking me home Walking me home Walking me home Walking me home That night Walking me home Walked me home And then goodbye Froze in time I don't know why All I see now is me Standing there like before For evermore Like the last night You walked me home Right to my door Looking through some files In a photographic folder You came across my mind Ooh-ooh yah You were Walking me home Walking me home Walking me home Walking me home Walking me home Walking me home That night Walking me home Walking me home

You've got the way to make it Harder and harder When you say the things that you don't Mean to say Ah-ah when you look in the mirror You ask yourself Will he just walk away He needs you anyway, anyway 
 Not often easy to say 
 Anyway, anyway Ooh-ooh ya 
 Who knows what it leads to 
 Just know that he needs you 
 Anyway 
 Behind the stars that get 
 Brighter and brighter 
 There is just a moment when there's 
 No light ahead 
 Ah you think heaven's above you You look around And it comes down on your head 
 He needs you anyway, anyway Not often easy to say 
 Anyway, anyway 
 Who knows what it leads to 
 Just know that he needs you 
 Anyway He needs you anyway, anyway Not often easy to say 
 Anyway, anyway, oo-oo-ya 
 Who knows what it leads to 
 Just know that he needs you 
He needs you anyway, anyway Not often easy to say
 He needs you anyway, anyway Not often easy to say He needs you anyway, anyway Not often easy to say He needs you anyway, anyway Not often easy to say He needs you anyway, anyway Not often easy to say

Oh lord, oh lord I feel so far away A long long way from the birthplace Of my fantasies I've got no power I've got my hand-brake on What do you want me to feel What's wrong with just real Too hard to conceal Well just let it show Ah let it show I'm just a beggar on fire I'm just a beggar on fire I'm just a beggar on fire On the streets of your love I cry, I cry When there's no other way When things aren't just exactly Like they're supposed to be, no When there's no answer When there's no compromise What do you want me to do Slow down and refuel No way as a rule To just let it go Ah let it go I'm just a beggar on fire I'm just a beggar on fire I'm just a beggar on fire On the streets of your love On the streets of your love Your love I'm just a beggar on fire I'm just a beggar on fire I'm just a beggar on fire On the streets of your love On the streets of your love On the streets of your love On the streets of your love On the streets of your love On the streets of your love

Jukebox of Paris They work and they play See them rock their little hearts out On the Champs-Elysées Roll over Voltaire Debussy too Jukebox of Paris Got a hold on you Just go and dance To that jukebox of Paris Just go and dance To that rock and roll Always a chance That you'll never be lonely Go where the Frenchmen go Dans le bistro Dans le bistro Down by the water In the Saints-Pères café See them talking in the corner With their hands they will say It may get colder But the franc it can't lose Just drop it in a jukebox Full of rhythm and blues Just go and dance To that jukebox of Paris Just go and dance To that rock and roll Always a chance That you'll never be lonely Go where the Frenchmen go Dans le bistro Dans le bistro En voyant la Seine Je pense à toi Just go and dance To that jukebox of Paris Just go and dance To that rock and roll Always a chance That you'll never be lonely Go where the Frenchmen go Dans le bistro

Higher and higher The books are on fire Making their way 'cross the room Closer and closer Oh no not me sir I've got to live after school All the gang at the hardware store Steal a wrench and some motor oil We're gonna fix up that big grey Ford Rockin' your way through school Rockin' your way through school Rockin' your way through school Better and better Dancing together Kickin' the lead from your shoes Hotter in summer Still makes you wonder Who it was made the rules And the lights on the cat-walk smile You'll be dancing in just a little while With your heart in your mouth and your head in a cloud Rockin' your way through school Rockin' your way through school Rockin' your way through school And the road goes on forever Past the unhip and the cool Fresh tracks made to measure When you're rockin' your way through school Forever and ever The sidewalk surrenders And opens up straight to your room Night time is safer For lovers and takers And newly found friends of the moon And the class on the second floor Can hear you jumpin' at the baseball score You've done it once and gonna do it some more Rockin' your way through school Rockin' your way through school Rockin' your way through school

Do I love you still It seems a million miles away Close enough for me to say I love you still I love you still And the plane flies on Like a restless emotion Looking down on the sea I never know if my heart is achin' It never ever should be Do I love you still It seems a million miles away Close enough for me to say I love you still I love you still Over and over Sideways and under I sit down to write Only to find some helpless piece of wisdom To be thrown back into the night Do I love you still It seems a million miles away Close enough for me to say I love you still I love you still Heart and soul I'm feelin' so old And I've never been drunk in my life It takes one to be all wrong And never know when you're all right Do I love you still It seems a million miles away Close enough for me to say I love you still I love you still Do I love you still It seems a million miles away

How far you gonna run away You never even tried Hard enough To live in love Than to always think That it's a crime Oh Lord you think it's right But how am I going to be When I get to sleep tonight Could you wake me this time 
 I never know when I've been Dreamin' about your love 
 This time 
 You know it would be unkind 
 If you don't wake me This time 
 I know that it's a giveaway 
 Another waste of time 
 Patch it up 
 A kiss good luck 
 And hope you feel 
 That time will heal 
 Oh Lord can you hear yourself 
 Could it be that I feel I've been 
 Talkin' to somebody else 
 Could you wake me this time 
 I never know when I've been 
 Dreamin' about your love 
 This time 
 You know it would be unkind 
 Oh oh If you don't wake me This time 
 Who says that it's so far away 
 When it's right before our eyes 
 High enough 
 To be in love 
 And hope this day 
 Won't slip away 
 Oh Lord I think it's right 
 But if you hear something weird 
 When I finally get to sleep tonight 
 Could you wake me this time 
 I never know when I've been 
 Dreamin' about your love 
 This time 
 You know it would be unkind 
 Oh oh if you don't wake me This time
