You Can't Teach Trouble to Sing

Lyrics

go out fire for a walk

put those flames in a new pool of thought

realize that the hardest thing

is you can’t teach trouble to sing

 

you can buy your love a meteor

then spend all night on the moonlit floor

you try and try like your mother begs

but you can’t teach trouble to sing

 

dumbfounded by the indecision you sink and think

how these days your hand doesn’t seem to stop the shake

 

refuse to believe that this is all

and then you pound your head against the invisible wall

fight and fight but you never win

‘cause you can’t teach trouble to sing

 

so make the best of what your evening brings

‘cause you can’t teach trouble to sing
