Cat Stevens ( Trouble)



Trouble 
Oh trouble set me free 
I have seen your face 
And it’s too much too much for me 

Trouble 
Oh trouble can’t you see 
You’re eating my heart away 
And there’s nothing much left of me 

I’ve drunk your wine 
You have made your world mine 
So won’t you be fair 
So won’t you be fair 

I don’t want no more of you 
So won’t you be kind to me 
Just let me go where 
I’ll have to go there 

Trouble 
Oh trouble move away 
I have seen your face 
And it’s too much for me today 

Trouble 
Oh trouble can’t you see 
You have made me a wreck 
Now won’t you leave me in my misery 

I’ve seen your eyes 
And I can see death’s disguise 
Hangin’ on me 
Hangin’ on me 

I’m beat, I’m torn 
Shattered and tossed and worn 
Too shocking to see 
Too shocking to see 

Trouble 
Oh trouble move from me 
I have paid my debt 
Now won’t you leave me in my misery 

Trouble 
Oh trouble please be kind 
I don’t want no fight 
And I haven’t got a lot of time
