Trouble Me ~ Dennis Drew/Natalie Merchant

Trouble, trouble me
Disturb me with all your cares and your worries
Trouble me
On the days when you feel spent

Why let your shoulders bend underneath this burden
When my back is sturdy and strong?
Trouble me

Speak to me
Don’t mislead me, the calm I feel means a storm is swelling
Speak to me
There’s no telling where it starts or how it ends
Speak to me
Why are you building this thick brick wall to defend me?
Speak to me
When your silence is my greatest fear

Why let your shoulders bend underneath this burden
When my back is sturdy and strong?
Speak to me

Let me
Have a look inside these eyes while I’m learning
Let me
Please don’t hide them just because of tears
Let me
Send you off to sleep with a
There, there, now stop your turnin’ and tossin’
Let me
Let me know where the hurt is and how to heal

Spare, spare me
Don’t spare me anything

Trouble me, trouble me
Disturb me with all your cares and you worries
Speak to me
And let our words build a shelter from the storm
Let me
And lastly, let me know what I can mend

There’s more, honestly, than my sweet friend, you can see
Trust is what I’m offering if you trouble me
