Troublesome Houses

This song is by Bonnie 'Prince' Billy and The Cairo Gang and appears on the album The Wonder Show of the World (2010).

I once loved a girl, but she couldn't take that I visited troublesome houses
She'd say, when I got home, to leave her alone
She could taste trouble on my mouth
When she was gone I missed her, I did... and still went to troublesome places
I couldn't withstand a glorious day without seeing these troublesome faces
And quiet eluded me, and keeps from me still, though I need my own bed and its solace
Day's noises steal in and copper my will, and I face the evils that follow us
I once had a house, and my family knew where to find me if ever they needed
Troublesome houses were foreign to them
They thought all papa's orders I heeded
Now they can't fnd me; they don't have my numbers, and just hear reports of my doings
Troublesome houses are not in their minds, though it's in those I do all my moving
