from Like That by Andy Ard



Sometimes the trouble is in the way you look at things.


© Andy Ard (BMI)

I thought I had troubles, boy was i ever wrong
I never knew a train wreck could go on for so long
How could anybody's lot in life be so unfair?
If bad luck was a currency, you'd be a millionaire

I thought some more and got to thinking this is all unreal
Then i remembered that's exactly how I used to feel
Until i saw the mess that i was living day to day
It didn't change until i had the courage for to say

There's trouble in your house, trouble in your mind
Trouble come from everything you will not leave behind
The trouble is it's close to you, and hard to recognize
There's trouble everywhere you look, there's trouble in your eyes

You'll find it when you're minding business that's none of your own
Dig it up like gardens that you haven't sown
There's lots of ways to get it, and I'd say you've got it good
There's lots of ways to fix it, and i do believe you could

So let me help you friend to lay your trouble down
But it won't work if you keep on a-bringing it around
You're going nowhere if you're only keeping it at bay
There's trouble at the door and there's more trouble on the way

chorus / Instrumental

When i was young, they said to make decisions you'll abide
But even all the good ones can take you for a ride
And if you take the high road, no matter what you do
Trouble finds the path of least resistance up to you

So gather up your troubles and throw them in the can
Hang 'em up or pack 'em off into a moving van
But don't take trouble with you to the places that you go
Starting with whatever keeps you from wanting to know there's
