TROUBLE AND LOVE: TROUBLE AND LOVE

http://youtu.be/5_vzGnX60eY Some things go together naturally. There is inevitability in their coupling. Things like beans and rice, peanut butter and jelly, salt and pepper, wine and cheese, bread and butter. Cake and icing, syrup and pancakes, peaches and cream, sugar and spice. Bacon and eggs, spaghetti and meatballs, salt and pepper, fish and chips, corned beef and cabbage, macaroni and cheese. Chips and salsa, cereal and milk. Thunder and lightening, fire and rain. Ebony and ivory, fork and knife, nuts and bolts. Lock and key, brush and comb, silver and gold. Spring and rain. Rock and roll, fire and brimstone. Moon and stars. And for all the obvious reasons...

Trouble and Love

This song is a co-write with my good pal, Scott Nolan.

LYRICS: TROUBLE AND LOVE

At the Downtowner, near the Roosevelt Baths Forty-eight fifty if you pay in cash Spanish television up through the floor Desk clerk don’t look up when I walk by anymore

Blizzard outside, blizzard in her heart Lonely travelers and cheap motel art Snow is falling on snow that fell on snow I said hold on baby please don’t let go

Trying to catch my breath, she moved so fast Rumble strips, red lights, broken glass Twisted steel, sirens, and blood Love and trouble, trouble and love

A head full of dreams, a chest full of hurt Friends say walk on; it’s more trouble than it’s worth But my will is gone and my head hangs low It ain’t the leaving, it’s the way you go

Trying to catch my breath, she moved so fast Rumble strips, red lights, broken glass Twisted steel, sirens, and blood Love and trouble, trouble and love Love and trouble, trouble and love Love and trouble, trouble and love Love and trouble, trouble and love
