The Trouble
'Mr. Worst'
Copyright 2015
Marc Jeffares

I hear she’s livin’ in Germany.
I bet she’s dreamin’ of France
Waxin’ nostalgic ‘bout the crescent city
Where we lived together in a shotgun shack.

Here I am in Eastern Kentucky
Tryin’ not to get caved in.
Diggin’ that cold coal of loneliness
Hopin’ you don’t burn me again.

Congratulations, Mr. Worst!
You got your way when you squandered love.
The price of a warm bed, nothin’ ever was the same.
Yesterday’s tomorrow; tomorrow’s today.
Goodbye World.

You give so much to these risks you take
Expect too much from your friends.
All you ever think about’s your gravest mistakes.
How you can use them in the end.

It’s too late for the good life, too much wine, not enough roses.
You tell yourself it’s all the same sin.
You string yourself along for the sake of a song
Called the ballad of what could have been.

I hear she’s livin’ in Germany.
I bet she’s dreamin’ of France.
She never likes where she is as much as where she was
Or where she might’ve liked to go instead.

I’m still here in Eastern Kentucky
Watchin’ that mountain laurel bloom
Hopin’ someday I can bloom, too
Hopin’ that I outgrow you.

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.
