lyrics

Neighbour / We’re in Trouble

My neighbour, he’s a good man, strong and kind,
Works every hour that he can, treats his family right.
I get on his nerves sometimes, I know he gets on mine,
But he’s my good neighbour, he’s a good man. We get along just fine.

I’m in trouble

The clock is watching me now, as it always does,
Tuesday morning 9.15, already four hours at work,
I’ll make the rent this month for all that that is worth,
When all the bills are paid, there’s nothing left for us.

I’m in trouble

In the city they’ve got time enough
for wine and book clubs
Time on top of time enough,
for judging us.


My neighbour, he’s a good man, the kind who’d lend you a generator,
We don’t always get along but he’s a good debater,
In this empty bar in this company town we silently agree,
This place it knew good times once, but no time recently.

We’re in trouble
We’re in trouble

In the city they’ve got time enough,
For the New York Times over brunch,
Time on top of time enough,
For judging us.

In the city they’ve got time enough
For wine and book clubs
Time on top of time enough,
For judging us.

You know nothing about my life,
You know nothing about my life,
We’re in trouble
We’re in trouble.
