First Sign of Trouble

This song is by Mel Parsons and appears on the album Drylands (2015).

It's been a whirlwind, that I'll admit
The way we fell into each other, we fell fast in the rift
Dragging each other deeper, before we learned to swim
There was no relent, my dear, as we pulled each other in

So, don't you leave me at the first sign of trouble
Don't you let me drown
And don't you leave me at the first sign of trouble
Just 'cause I'm feelin' down

I know I'm no saint, I'll be the first to admit
I can be hard work, yeah, I will test your wits
And then the heat becomes pain, and the ember returns to flame
And the wind picks up what's left behind and throws 'em to fate on down the line

Don't you leave me at the first sign of trouble
Don't you let me drown
Don't you leave me at the first sign of trouble
But just 'cause I'm feelin' down

Oh, talk to me
Baby, tell me how you feel
Go on, cry with me
You gotta try and keep it real
Yeah, talk to me
Baby, tell me how you feel
Come on, cry with me
You gotta try and keep it real

I don't know what book you've read that said it'd all be roses
But, darlin', that is not life, that's a poet's prose, and I
I will beg to keep the status quo, and I, I will beg for you not to go
I'm down on me knees, don't you know, baby, that I love you so

So, don't you leave me at the first sign of trouble
Don't you let me drown
Don't you leave me at the first sign of trouble
Just 'cause I'm feelin' down

Don't you leave me at the first sign of trouble
Don't you let me drown
Don't you leave me at the first sign of trouble
Just 'cause I'm feelin' down
