lyrics

There's trouble, trouble,
etched upon my face
Some subtle, sculptor
Has melancholy traced
In furrows, furrows
Innocence gone, erased
And trouble, trouble
Has occupied its place

But you reach out your hand
And wipe away
the lines above my eyes

There’s trouble, trouble
Brewing deep inside
It bubbles, bubbles
Around my narrow eyes
Running, running
Streaking, leaving lines
This trouble, trouble
It pours, the tears I cry

But you let out a laugh
And smile away
the lines above my eyes

Cosmetic counter cures
Can repair my skin
Your medicine can heal
The trouble deep within

when your reach out your hands
And wipe away
the lines above my eyes

Another lover
might leave me in the mire
But you trouble, trouble
To make me live my life

The days pass by
We wile away
The lines above my eyes

I say goodbye, goodbye, goodbye
To these lines, these lines,
these lines above my eyes
You reach out your hand,
And wipe away the line above my eyes
