(Rosanne Cash - Rodney Crowell)

Trouble when you're searching
And you ain't so very young
You don't fit into table talk
But you can't hold back your tongue
You have what they all desire
So you must want it too
I'm looking for a corner
To back my heart into

Trouble when they know you
Your face or just your name
They count the times you stumble
When you barely know the game
You know you never asked for this
Someone who looks like you
I'm looking for a corner
To back my heart into

I just want to find while there's still time
Some peace of mind that I can hold on to
I ain't lookin' for no magic door
Then waiting for someone to push me through

Trouble when the ones you love
Don't know how to love you back
You're forever climbing icy walls
Forever falling back
You're not even lying
And they don't believe it's true
I'm looking for a corner
To back my heart into

Trouble when the heartaches
Don't hurt you anymore
There's nothing like the passion
That you felt so long before
You have what they all desire
But you want it to
I'm looking for a corner
To back my heart in to
