    "For Taking the Trouble" Lyrics

    Jackson Browne

    For taking the trouble, for hanging on and tryin'
    Now you've been working through the rubble of a shattered mind

    Yeah Baby, tell me why the tears are falling from your eye
    Tears of laughter, tears of grief, are they the tears of a captured thief?

    You thought that you were home free, thought you had her well in hand
    But there were things about her you didn't understand

    Yeah Baby, tell me how you're gonna keep that promise now?
    To live your life without regret and make it work with what you get

    You didn't then, but now you know
    When she began to lie-you really should have let her go

    You're learnin' how to talk about it, you're learnin' how to bend
    It's like you're learning how to walk all over again

    Yeah Baby, tell me who you're gonna give your lovin' to?
    That girl who catches every eye
    Or the one you can set your compass by

    You set it by her soulful smile
    The fire in her eye
    And the way she goes that extra mile
    The love you wanted this to be
    Is somewhere down the line
    You'll find her eventually

    Your grandma and her grandma
    Sittin' 'round heaven discussin' the law
    Lovin' that girl was not your crime,
    Livin' without her gonna take some time
    Lovin' that girl next thing you knew,
    You'd turned away from the thing you do
    Lovin' that girl, you couldn't see
    Living without her gonna make you free
