"Trouble Is a Friend" as written by and Salter/kripac....
Trouble will find you no mater where you go, oh oh
No Matter if you're fast no matter if you're slow, oh oh
The eye of the storm and the cry in the morn, oh oh
Your fine for a while but then start to loose control

He's there in the dark
He's there in my heart
He waits in the winds
He's gotta play a part
Trouble is a friend
Yeah trouble is a friend of mine. oh oh

Trouble is a friend but trouble is a foe, oh oh
And no matter what I feed him he always seems to grow, oh oh
He sees what I see and he knows what I know, oh oh
So don't forget as you ease on down the road


So don't be alarmed if he takes you by the arm
I won't let him win, but I'm a sucker for his charm
Trouble is a friend
Yeah trouble is a friend of mine, oh oh

Oh how I hate the way he makes me feel
And how I try to make him leave, I try
Oh Oh I try

    General CommentI love that haunting 'aah' part of the song. Love the tune!

    as much as we like doing the 'right thing', it's the struggle of the temptation. Just like a friend it's there.

    My InterpretationTrouble is a friend because trouble is what motivates the writer. Trouble is the discomfort that can't be escaped but keeps the writer moving forward for more and for better.

    General CommentGreat song, but you have one line from the song incorrect.

    It's not "I roll down the window, I'm a sucker for his charm"

    It's "I won't let him win, I'm a sucker for his charm"
