It's been on my mind to post this song for a while. I had wanted to write a REAL post with it that went a ways to explain why I adore this particular song, but it is one of those posts that just keep re-writing themselves in your head the longer you ponder it, and the more you hear things around you, especially things happening to other people you care about. Happily I also wanted to post a top ten series of my favourite break-up songs for the very awesome [livejournal.com profile] butterbee, and since that ALSO gives me an awesome excuse to post this song, I will take the excuse route, since I am really too exhausted today to comment on the various other deeper meanings of this song to me in particular, which are still at least partially break up related. Maybe later in the comments I can go into it, but Today is not that day. Today I just need to post it for someone who probably needs a good break-up song right about now. Oh, and the Top Ten is likely to be like a Fred Top Five list (which never ever had 5 things, ever) so I make no promises other than I do have more than 5 in mind! More tomorrow! Today- Shawn Colvin

"Trouble" -Shawn Colvin

Baby let me set you down
You look so troubled and I think I know
Just when you think you've come around
There you go

Now I know the business of the heart
And it'll get you anyway it can
You need someone to walk with in the dark, well
I'm your man

I go to the trouble like a magnet
That's where I'll be
Trouble is just a place to sing
It's what you need

I swear you look like you're in jail
And all at once you're halfway out the door
One foot dancing, one foot nailed
To the floor

Chasing those circles in the ground
The same old shit is still the same old lie
Just when you think you've got it down
Watch it fly

I go to the trouble like a light
Or like a dare
Trouble is just a friend to me, I know
It'll always be there

It's really hard to make your peace
So give me some credit for the hell I've paid
This world's a blessing and a beast

So come on baby let me show you how
The less you know the more I comprehend
You don't have to drag me down
I descend

I go to the trouble and I like it
That's where I'll be
Trouble is just like love, if it's half the way
It's all I can see
And it's just what you need
