From the recording The Trouble with Love

Lyrics

I hear a love song playing on the radio
Singing of a sweet September day.
Words that every woman wants so much to hear
Words I’ve always wished that I could say.
But in my lifetime
I’ve always wound up hurt.
The people who I trusted most
Treated me like dirt.
The song I’m hearing
Is only make believe.
They’re singing of a love I can’t conceive.

The Trouble with Love
It’s never enough.
You keep wanting more.
It’s dangerous stuff.
The more she hurts you
The more you want her back.
The Trouble with Love
It eats you alive.
You need her beside you
Just to survive.
Too far gone, there ain’t no turning back.
That’s the Trouble with Love.

I know a young girl with a heart as pure as gold.
She was sure she thought she was in love.
She had a boyfriend and she’d do as she was told.
But he felt one girl was not enough.
‘cause when he came home
every Friday night,
she could tell from his expression
something wasn’t right.
And when she found out
All she did was cry.
Everything he told her was a lie.

The Trouble with Love
It’s never enough.
You keep wanting more
It’s dangerous stuff.
The more he hurts you,
The more you want him back.
The Trouble with Love,
It eats you alive.
You need him beside you
Just to survive.
Too far gone, there ain’t no turning back.
That’s the Trouble with Love.

Now that I’m older, she and I have grown.
Still we feel the hunger of the heart.
The pain of silence, now that we’re alone
Tells me we’re no better off apart.
I hope she’s happy
Now that I am gone.
She’ll pick up the pieces of her
Life and carry on.
And if I’m lucky,
I can do the same.
This way no one person is to blame.

The Trouble with Love
It’s never enough
We keep wanting more
It’s dangerous stuff.
The more they hurt us
The more we want them back.
The Trouble with Love
It eats us alive
We need them beside us
Just to survive
Too far gone, there ain’t no turning back.
That’s the Trouble with Love.
