Inspiration for these lyrics came on the way to the dump one day. I took the ever useful discarded envelope and wrote the first verse and then let the song sit for a couple of years before I revisited my notes. We recorded it live the 2nd time the band had ever heard or played it.

The Trouble with Love

Up against the wall and spread 'em
Cupid's gonna get you if you let him
Make you bat blind in the day time
Day blind to the night
You can't tell up from down
And you don't know wrong from right
And that's the trouble with love
chorus
The trouble with love
Near as I can see
It'll make you do what you don't want to do
And be who you don't want to be
The trouble with love
Is the trouble with life
It'll reel you in with a sheepish grin
And then cut you like a knife
And that's the trouble with love

Bend down put your hands on the hood
Cupid's gonna get you real good
Make you feel like you own the world
There's nothing that you can't do
Then it will turn your world upside down
And make you feel a fool
And that's the trouble with love

The trouble with love
Near as I can see
It'll make you do what you don't want to do
And be who you don't want to be
The trouble with love
Is the trouble with life
It'll reel you in with a sheepish grin
And then cut you like a knife
And that's the trouble with love

Kneel down put your hands in the air
Cupid's gonna get you I swear
Make you feel like the one you love's
The reason that you breathe
Then it knocks the wind right out of you
When and if they leave
And that's the trouble with love

The trouble with love
Near as I can see
It'll make you do what you don't want to do
And be who you don't want to be
The trouble with love
Is the trouble with life
It'll reel you in with a sheepish grin
And then cut you like a knife
And that's the trouble with love
