"The Trouble With Me" as written by Stephen Duffy and Robert Williams....
You see the trouble with me
I'm a basket case
I don't think I can love, love, love

You see the trouble with you
Is your in love with me
What a strange thing to do
What a brave place to be

So we dive
On sunset strip
Our hearts so deep
I drown in it
And as it breaks
I swim through cracks
And leave with words
I can't take back

You see the trouble with me
Monkey see monkey do
There's no you in tomorrow
A better offer came through
You see the trouble with you
There's no trouble with you
So when you say that you love me
That stops me loving you

So she stays
On sunset strip
Our hearts so full
I drown in it
She's waiting for
My words to break
The one true love
I couldn't make

So she walks
That golden mile
Men will try
And catch her eye
We both know
What could have been
On sunset strip
Our broken dream

    General CommentOne of my favourites of Intensive Care. I think it's just Robbie being true about "the trouble with him", just not being able to have and keep a "regular" relationship. He is aware of that void and talks about in a cynical way "the trouble with you is you are in love with me". I just can relate to the feeling of being somehow a difficult person to be in a relationship with, coming to terms that maybe you are the problem in the first place and not your partner. "I'm a basket case, I don't think I can love, love, love". That (awful) feeling that you might not be "able" to love someone the right way.

    General CommentThis song is EXCELLENT! I can completely relate to the concept. He's a commitmentphobe, and relationships scare him.

    General CommentYou know I can't figure them out either...I hear something like "I'm sorry..." but I'm pretty sure they are not the correct lines...
    Somebody could help?

    General CommentThis song is definitely underrated. it's one of RW's careers best songs lyrical and melody wise. Have never figured out what he exactly said in those parts toward the end. Made my native speaker friends listen and they didn't get anything either.
