My Troubles

Got a black eye in a bar fight
On a bad night in July
My highlights and my lowlights
Passed right before my eyes
By the end of September
I intended to be home
I was still here at New Year's
In tears and all alone

But you don't want to hear about my troubles
I know that you've got troubles of your own
And you don't want to get involved with me, baby
So my advice is to think twice and to leave this kid alone
My advice is to think twice and to leave this kid alone

I was sleeping like a baby
When a crowd crashed through the door
I was thinking this may be
The sign I was looking for
Then a choir of angels
Came winging around my head
They grabbed me by the ankles
And they dragged me out of bed

But you don't want to hear about my troubles
I know that you've got troubles of your own
And you don't want to get involved with me, baby
So my advice is to think twice and to leave this kid alone
My advice is to think twice and to leave this kid alone

Now there are powerful people
Who take all they can steal
Elected officials
Who think science isn't real
There's leaders of religion
Who tolerate the obscene
So I'm not the saddest vision
That you have ever seen

But you don't want to hear about my troubles
I know that you've got troubles of your own
And you don't want to get involved with me, baby
So my advice is to think twice and to leave this kid alone

You don't want to hear about my troubles
I know that you've got troubles of your own
And you don't want to get involved with me, baby
So my advice is to think twice and to leave this kid alone
My advice is to think twice and to leave this kid alone
