Staples, Mavis - Love And Trust Lyrics

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 the criminal, the sinner and the priest
Got something in common, bring 'em all to their knees

Do what you can, do what you must
Everybody's crying to find some 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)

Lust ain't an offender but stealing from a thief
Storm after storm leave you shaking like a leaf
They say broken hearts make the world go around
Trading headaches for heartaches, wanna get you down

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're trying to find yourself some love and trust

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

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

(Love and trust)
Do what you must
Everybody, everybody wants love and trust
(Love and trust)
Do all you can, do what you must
Oh Lord, we want some love and trust
(Love and trust)

    What a magical pairing. Love Mavis. Love Rick. Never would have thought of Mavis Staples, child of the Chitlin Circuit, and Jump Bluesman-deluxe, Rick Holmstrom together. But hearing this, what a nat'l thang. Does their synergy work for ya, friends? Cause Mavis is clearly lovin' it. Spread the word. Love's come to town!  -Doug Pratt, Atlanta, Georgia, USA

    Mavis is absolutely brilliant, a shining diamond among singers and the band she's compiled for this release is equal in gem quality. The lead guitarist sizzles to perfectly match Mavis' vocals and as a master of his craft, he doesn't step on her notes and lines as he deftly punctuates the song. I am impressed and in awe of sheer talent, grace, and the gift of ability one only can receive from God. She has not abused the gift He bestowed upon her and for that, we are all blessed with a wonderful concert.
