Troubled Man
Milky Chance Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Troubled man, troubled man

You see me falling through the sky
I landed here, I don't know why
Everybody acting strange
Everybody playing games
I don't wanna be here
Can you please just skip the scene
I wish that I could turn back time and leave

You better get back down
Hands over your head
Better shut your mouth
Listen what they say
Remember you don't have a chance anyway
Anyway (ayy, ayy)
Troubled man
Anyway (ayy, ayy)
Troubled man
Anyway (ayy, ayy)
Troubled man
Anyway (ayy, ayy)
Troubled man

Every place that I have found
Never had a common ground
All you did was acting strange
All you did was playing games
I don't wanna be here
Can you please just skip the scene
I wish that I could turn back time and leave

You better get back down
Hands over your head
Better shut your mouth
Listen what they say
Remember you don't have a chance anyway
Anyway (ayy, ayy)
Troubled man
Anyway (ayy, ayy)
Troubled man
Anyway (ayy, ayy)
Troubled man
Anyway (ayy, ayy)
Troubled man
Anyway

Troubled man, troubled man




Troubled man, troubled man
Anyway
