Trouble

Here comes trouble

The day you were born began a lifetime of hurt

Ya parents named ya trouble on ya birth certificate

Ya mama didn’t want ya, daddy wouldn’t get involved

She’d of spat him with her acid till his soul had dissolved

Nobody knowed, nobody ever would,

Why you were treated bad, ya sibling treated good

Something musta happened huh, before ya were born?

 & ya mama used you to put her anger upon

It was wrong ya took it on all the anger and blame,

 Grew up to be troubled and into ya name

Took the name to ya brain until you believed,

You were everything they said, well at least you achieved,

Coz nuthin else ya ever did seemed to make the grade, growing up without the warmth

Of the lovin in the shade of the shadow

of ya sibling, the “A” number one

And spent ya whole life wondering what the hell you’d done     

                               ----x----                                

So don’t hold on let go, don’t hold on let go 

Don’t hold on let go and free yourself to live 

Don’t hold on let go, don’t hold on let go 

Don’t hold on let go and free yourself to give  

                                    ----x----                                    

When you forgive you ain't saying its right

You're just handing it back, takin control of your life

And what a life oh, we coulda written a book

All the bumpety bumpety the poopity poop

That’s shit to you and me, some people have a lot

Some people get over it, some people do not

You fall into the latter wont ever be fixed

I tried sticky back plastic to put all the bits

Back together but ya never gonna be satisfied

I used to listen to the Prince track “when doves cry”

I keep trying to save ya, must get on ya wick

I tell you to let go but I can't I’m a hypocrite

The legacy when you keep holding on

Is it just drags the whole thing on & on, on & on, on & on & on                        & on & on On & on, on & on &on & on                     

  ----x---- 

So don’t hold on let go, don’t hold on let go 

Don’t hold on let go and free yourself to live 

Don’t hold on let go, don’t hold on let go 

Don’t hold on let go and free yourself to give

  ----x----  

               

You know I lied for ya

You know I cried for ya

You know there’s been times I coulda even died for ya

Had a knife to my throat but I didn’t giva fuck

Woulda done me a favour coz I’d had enough

When ya living with damage it’s tough

But damage don’t have to stop the love

           ----x----               

So don’t hold on let go, don’t hold on let go 

Don’t hold on let go and free yourself to live 

Don’t hold on let go, don’t hold on let go 

Don’t hold on let go and free yourself to give

           ----x----                

Ya parents named ya trouble, it’s time to burst the bubble

Coz Lovin you’s no trouble at all.

----x----
