Lyrics

Trouble

Written By: Craig Jackson

Trouble

i know your voice
and when you sing
your angel eyes they take flight and bring me to my knees
i sense a distance
seems your tangled up inside
for you i'd die a thousand deaths and never question why

i want you to know
your always in my heart- buried in my soul
i want you to know
if theres trouble in your heart
please can i help you let it go

you've been my breath
my reason to be
we promised we would keep it real- honor each others needs
i am dying on the inside
can't bear to leave you cold
is it possible the love we have is just to much to hold

i want you to know
your always in my heart- buried in my soul
i want you to know
theres trouble in my heart
i just can't seem to let it go

i know your world is closing in
i pray theres still room for me
i don't want to hurt you babe
i just need some time to be

i want you to know
your always in my heart-buried in my soul
i want you to know
if theres trouble in your heart- you got to let me know

i want you to know
your always in my heart- buried in my soul
i want you to know
if theres trouble in your heart- you gotta let me know
yes there's trouble in my heart -i've tried to hide it though
yes there's trouble in these hearts
it's time to let each other go
