     Em                           D
1. Baby let me set you down
     Em                                  D      G     You look so
troubled and I think I know
     Em                                            D
    Just when you think you've got it down
    There you go.

2. 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
             C                      D        Am
          Trouble is just a place to sing
                                       C       Em
          It's just what you need

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

4. Chasing those circles in the ground
    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

5.  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
     Every day

6.  So baby let me show you how
     The less you know the more
     I'll 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.
