The Trouble
'Give It All'
Copyright 2015
Marc Jeffares

If I gave it all to you, I'd be wastin' all my time
If I gave it all to you, I'd be losin' all my fight
If I gave it all to you, I couldn't tell left and wrong from right, or dark from light
Like a bullet from a revolver, you might blow me off for fun
Pack me full of powder, spin me in your chamber of love
Funny how these empty bottles shatter like promises and dreams
Like the ice around your heart would do if you gave it all to me, baby

If I gave it all to you, I'd be buyin' all your lies
If I gave it all to you, I've be sellin' out my kind
If I gave it all to you, I would be joy deaf, dumb and blind, to me and mine
Like a black market dollar paid to you in blood
You might take my devotion, but it won't be enough
Funny how the wheels of justice turn into pumpkins at your feet
Like the demons in your heart would do if you gave it all to me, baby

If I gave it all to you, I would have no chance to take
If I gave it all to you, I would have no sense to make
If I gave it all to you, I couldn't see my baddest mistakes, for goodness sake
Like a sheep up on an alter when the killin' time is done
Tonight you might accept me or leave me for the mornin' sun
Funny how misguided hope survives despite grim realities
Like mercy in your heart would do if you gave it all to me, baby

about

The Trouble Eureka, California

Love, indeed, rules the world; and as Northern California rock group The Trouble muses in their debut album, sometimes love rules the world with an iron fist.

Behind the redwood curtain of the Pacific Northwest, the band writes and records in a converted Victorian era carriage house, communing with familiar ghosts of Americana.
