Everything But The Girl - Troubled Mind Lyrics



Don't say one thing one day
then something else the next day.
I'm trying to keep up with you.
It's hard enough when you speak clearly,
but when you're confused
It's like a goods train running through these rooms.

And I'm reading more into your words than you have put into them
and that's my problem, but you tied these knots,
now you undo them, you undo them.
Oh think before you speak my darling.

Cause with your troubled mind,
you're like a goods train running through my life
you're like a goods train running through my life

We all walk through these world alone
we keep ourselves untouched unknown
You look up to the sky above you, read this there
I love you...Oh its written there you know I love you
love you...love you...love you

But with your trouble mind,
You're like a goods train running through my life
You're like a goods train running through my life

And when you're down your bring me down too,
and, babe, that's something I would not do.
I know its hard yeah I know its hard.
and, babe, that's something I don't disregard.
I said, I don't disregard.

With your troubled mind,
you're like a goods train running through my life
you're like a goods train running through my life

and I'm feeling more into your words that

  8. wallace brown

    ok New observation... Love this song - wish they could have picked a less altered-sexual norm for the rest of the 95 percent of people that listen to you your music. Just a brother sharin', and hopin' that you've accepted Jesus Christ as you LORD and Savior.

  9. halit balkan

    Thank you 🎵

  10. Toni Michelle Hemmati

    This got me through life

  11. PanicByNumbers

    Always been a fan of this group ever since I heard them in my single digit years. I'm kinda but kinda not surprised when I hear something awesome on the radio and look up the song only to see 'yup, it's them again. How are they so consistently awesome?'

  12. Authentic Gay Blog

    Only 100,000 copies of this album sold when released what a travesty!

  13. David Theisen

    Great fucking bridge!

  14. Rodney Younger

    While here in Hawaii listening to this song riding the Maui bus to kaanapali:) Great combination

  23. Ben Mandeville

    Magnificent. Troubled mind, timeless.

  24. Dave Wilson

    Their collection of music lyrics and sound are amazing. I can listen to their entire albums beginning to end over and over but again I think that is where you are in your personal relationships.

  25. jr w

    your friend Cubana needs more help than me, she is persecuted publicly and George Crawford calls her a bitch

  26. Claudio verkligen

    Edward Perez

    It’s tough and brilliant.

  29. John Krauklis

    Yes the Album Everything But The Girl and this song Troubled Mind is so full of heaven and love that you just can not stop listening. Massive attack with such a intuative singer. Loneliness has been the problem for me so this Album and this song fits like a glove.

    Quinton Pierce

    Glen, I so agree.   It just goes to show no matter how bright the light it can still be missed by the blind.

  34. AN P

    Don't say one thing one day
    Then something else the next day
    I'm trying to keep up with you
    It's hard enough when you speak clearly
    But when you're confused
    It's like a goods train running through these rooms

    And I'm reading more into your words than you have put into them
    And that's my problem but you tied these knots
    Now you undo them, you undo them
    Oh, and think before you speak my darling

    'Cause with your troubled mind
    You're like a goods train running through my life
    With your troubled mind
    You're like a goods train running through my life

    We all walk through this world alone
    We keep ourselves untouched, unknown
    You look up to the sky above you
    Read this there, I love you
    Oh, it's written there
    You know I love you, love you, love you, love you

    With your troubled mind
    You're like a goods train running through my life
    With your troubled mind
    You're like a goods train running through my life

    And when you're down, you bring it down too
    And babe, that's something I would not do
    I know it's hard, yeah, I know it's hard
    And babe, that's something I don't disregard, I don't disregard

    With your troubled mind
    You're like a goods train running through my life, my life
    With your troubled mind
    You're like a goods train running through my life

    With your troubled mind
    You know I love you, love you, love you, love you
    With your troubled mind
    You know I love you, love you, love you, love you

    With your troubled mind
    You're like a goods train running through my life, my life
    With your troubled mind
    You know I love you, love you, love you, love you

    Quinton Pierce

    And then you can make another P hoeneme from there.. good strain.. jeje..

    Andrew Pavlenkov thank you for the lyrics.

    Edward Perez

    Andrew Pavlenkov *when you're down, you bring me down too

  35. gcmacyman

    I think of dancing to this song with someone i really love, or a walk on the beach on a summer evening. Beautiful..

  36. elizabeth argyropoulos

    always makes me cry

  37. Steve smyth

    A brilliant Album. Its in my top 10 of all time. Silky smoot voice with heartfelt lyrics and Ben Watts is an amazing composer/musician

  38. Tony F

    Great album!   I love this one...

  39. Glen Knight

    This is still one of the most complete, brilliant, coherent and compelling albums of the last few decades - like a great novel, it doesn't age, just becomes more astonishing. Like a few others, I was surprised it fell below the radar and it didn't sell millions when released. A perfect album.

    Doug Whole

    Glen Knight .....the simple fact that I keep rediscovering this album again and again, it flows through my life. few albums measure up to the legs this one has....

    jeffthrow6892

    Couldn't agree more......

    DL86

    Just wait theres a resurgence of everything 90's and someone will redo it and everybody will be all over it.

    Frank Montoya

    It could be smooth-jazz, it cold be pop. And all songs can be sung with a guitar as folk. Powerful work, in so many ways.

    C C

    no its not that was barely coherent....

  40. scinerd81

    I bought this song after hearing it once. Almost two years later, it is still the #1 played song on my ipod. I never get tired of this song.

    Thomas sttt

    quality

  41. mrfishbone60

    How this album didn't sell 10 million copies is beyond me. Been on heavy rotation for me for over ten years. Great album, great artists.

  42. Gilson Bispo

    And when you're down,
    you bring me down too,
    and babe that's something I would not do.
    I know it's hard, yeah I know it's hard,
    and baby that's something I don't disregard.

  43. Legal Concealment Llc

    YESSSS!!!!!! I love this song!

  44. gcmacyman

    It is my all time favorite song. Talk about a feel good song that you love to listen to in the car headed to the beach on a summer day? Or better yet, in the evening leaving the beach. So sexy...You're like a goods train, running through my life, my life.. Beautiful..

  45. SRayVon4u

    Very smooth song... yes T.L. Yes this was sadly missed by radio
