Lyrics

[Verse 1]
The simplest things can be the hardest to do
Can't find what you're looking for even when it's looking for you
The judge and criminal, the sinner and the priest
Got something in common, bring em all to their knees

[Chorus]
Do what you can, do what you must
Everybody's trying to find the love and trust
I walk the line, I walk it for us
See me out here tryin' to find some love and trust
(Love and trust)
(Love and trust)

[Verse 2]
Lust ain't an offender
But stealing from a thief
Strom after storm
Leave you shaking like a leaf
They say broken hearts make the world go around
Trading headaches for heartaches, wanna to get you down

[Chorus 2]
Give it some time
Don't try to rush
When you're trying to find yourself some love and trust
Do what you can
Might not be enough
When you try to find yourself some love and trust

[Verse 3]
Like a horse in a race
Who don't wanna run
Like an executioner
Who won't fire his gun
Like a boxer yo
Who won't take a swing
Just like a prince
Who don't wanna be king

[Chorus 3]
Haven't we suffered
Suffered enough
Now we're out here tryin' to find some love and trust
Do what you can, do what you must
Everybody's trying to find some love and trust
Everybody's trying to find some love and trust
Everybody
(Love and trust)
Do what you must
Everybody want's love and trust
Do all you can, do what you must
Oh lord we want some love and trust
