Trouble's Lament

Album: Unrepentant Geraldines (2014)
  • Trouble needs a home girls
    Trouble needs a home
    She fell out with Satan
    Now she's on the run
    But I have found her quite straightforward
    In her contracts and her deals
    She warns me when Danger is
    Loose behind his wheels
    And he is loose behind his wheels
    Don't cry baby

    Trouble got evicted,
    From the Devil's lair
    I wager she got betrayed
    By her friend Despair
    Now the flames from Satan's tongue are charged
    And licking at her heels
    She whispers Hey Ginger, Danger's loose behind his wheels
    And Satan knows how Danger makes you feel
    What will be will be, baby

    You don't, you don't need to cry
    There are no tears in my eyes
    If Danger wants to find me
    I'll let him in, he can find me

    Trouble needs a home girls
    A covert abode
    From Tucson to Ohio
    Back through Tobacco road
    And she is armed and will fight for the souls
    Of girls around the world.
    Standing up to Satan
    Dancing on st. Michael's sword
    I'm on her side, in this brutal war
    Don't cry baby

    You don't, you don't need to cry
    There are no tears in my eyes
    If Danger wants to find me
    I'll let him in, he can find me

    Trouble needs a home girls
    Trouble needs a home
    Trouble needs a home girls
    Will you give her one
    Trouble needs a home,
    Trouble needs a home Writer/s: MYRA ELLEN TORI AMOS
