"Trouble Comes Running" as written by and Britt Daniel....
I was in a functional way
And I have my brown sound jacket
Queen of call collect on my arm
She was my calm-me-down
She was my good-luck charm
She was my good luck

Here it come running
Here it come running again
Trouble come running
Here it come running again

Well alright
I got taken away
By a heavenly host
To a heavenly place
I didn't wanna leave
I would not be swayed

But here it come running
Here it come running again
Trouble where the kids are
Here it come running
Well are you picking up?
Are you picking up what I'm putting down?
Putting down
Running, here it come running
Ah, running again

Well done
I was in a functional way
And thinking clean clean thoughts
Effort just to keep my nose on
Just trying to look straight ahead
Don't wanna tell him he's wrong
Wanna tell him he's wrong

It come running
Here it come running
Where the kids are
Here it come running again
Slaves are on the horses
Princes walk the ground like they're slaves
Here it come running
Here it come running again
Running again
Running again
Running again
Ah, running

    General CommentWhy are so few people commenting on these songs?

    I think this is about how when he gets into a stable relationship "trouble comes running" and he gets swept up into another one.

    "Slaves are on the horses, princes walk the ground like they're slaves," is such a strange line. I like it but I'm not sure what it means in this day and age. Brown Sound is an actual clothing company. I guess their clothes are so hot they make people shit themselves?

    There. Someone commented.

    My InterpretationI love love love this song. I'm kind of hoping to understand the "slaves are on the horses, princes walk the ground like they're slaves" thing, as well. I think perhaps it's referring to how people who are dependent on their lovers (slaves) are treated like royalty while the ones providing for all of their happiness (princes) suffer for it and go unappreciated (as a slave's labor would be)? Just a guess.

    General CommentThe princes and slaves line is actually a reference to the Bible. Ecclesiastes 10:7, to be exact: "I have seen servants upon horses, and princes walking as servants upon the earth."

    I think the whole song is at least thematically related to the book of Ecclesiastes.

    "All things are full of labour; man cannot utter it: the eye is not satisfied with seeing, nor the ear filled with hearing."
