Album: Trouble Man: Heavy is the Head (2012)
  • Hey, have you ever loved somebody so much you can’t stand it
    But can’t do without 'em?
    Do anything for 'em cause you truly do adore 'em
    Like dedicate songs, write poems
    But they be on that bullshit and you try to ignore 'em
    But you feel like they feel like you ain’t right for 'em
    Therefore your heart’s torn
    Between bein' with 'em forever, leavin' 'em never
    But it seem like you arguin', fightin' over whatever
    Maybe we can leave, find someone better
    Even though you will, you never know nothin' better
    My heart say "nah, she can’t leave, won't let her"
    Been head over heels since the very day I met her
    Fell so deep in love I ain’t been able to get up
    Sometimes I want some peace of mind and she don’t shut up
    Love her to death, don’t know whether to kiss her or kill her

    Should’ve known it
    From the start it was already over
    We were just too dumb to notice
    And we'd pray but
    Even love couldn’t save us
    We'd wake up
    On a bed of guns and roses
    And we don’t know which one to choose
    When either way, we’re gonna lose
    Still we'd pray but
    Even love couldn’t save us
    We'd wake up
    On a bed of guns and roses

    Hah, I guess I’d rather suffer with her than be miserable without her
    I buy a lot of Prada, Gucci and Balenciaga
    To keep her content, and keep down the nonsense
    With every corner we turn, around the conflict
    Mostly dumb shit, like who she run with
    Where the fuck you been? Your pants, they don’t fit
    Really, honestly speaking, some things I don’t get
    No matter how much she try she can’t make it make more sense
    Therefore, here we go again
    Screamin', yellin' at the top of our lungs, she goin' in
    Seeing the kind of shit I be like "if you was a man
    I would go in your shit, for real, no shit"
    But I love her so much that I can’t forget
    That the feel of a kiss, it could heal when I’m sick
    Still, I don’t like to feel like this
    If I wouldn’t miss her, I would try to get her killed right quick

    Should’ve known it
    From the start it was already over
    We were just too dumb to notice
    And we'd pray but
    Even love couldn’t save us
    We'd wake up
    On a bed of guns and roses
    And we don’t know which one to choose
    When either way, we’re gonna lose
    Still we'd pray but
    Even love couldn’t save us
    We'd wake up
    On a bed of guns and roses

    Every time we say our goodbyes
    A little piece of my heart breaks off inside
    I don’t really ever know why
    If I could live without you I’d try

    Should’ve known it
    From the start it was already over
    We were just too dumb to notice
    And we'd pray but
    Even love couldn’t save us
    We'd wake up
    On a bed of guns and roses
    And we don’t know which one to choose
    When either way, we’re gonna lose
    Still we'd pray but
    Even love couldn’t save us
    We'd wake up
    On a bed of guns and roses Writer/s: MATTHEW SAMUELS, KELLY SHEEHAN, NIKHIL SEETHARAM, ALECIA MOORE, CLIFFORD HARRIS, JACOB KASHER HINDLIN, TYLER WILLIAMS
