Bobby Womack – I Wish He Didn’t Trust Me So Much (1985)

Bobby Womack lanzó esta canción como la tema principal de su álbum de 1985 So Many Rivers. Pertenece a la llamada trilogía de discos The Poet, grabada para Beverly Glen Records, el sello con sede en Los Ángeles.

Robert Dwayne “Bobby” Womack (4 de marzo de 1944 – 27 de junio de 2014) fue un cantautor y músico estadounidense. Sus canciones más conocidas fueron grabadas en 1964 cuando él y sus hermanos eran conocidos como The Valentinos. It’s All Over Now, una versión de The Rolling Stones, la canción de 1972 Across 110th Street (de la película del mismo nombre) y también más tarde en la banda sonora de Jackie Brown, son algunos ejemplos de su impacto.

Esta mañana, probablemente mi cantante de soul favorito de todos los tiempos ha fallecido. Descansa en paz Bobby. Dejaste un gran legado de música. ¡Disfruta de su música y recuerda al gran Bobby Womack!

Lyrics

I’m the best friend he’s got
I’d give him the shirt off my back
He knows he can trust me with his life
But he’s tryin’ to leave me alone
Leaves me alone with his wife

I wish he didn’t trust me so much
I think he really trusts me too much
How can he be so blind?
We’ve both got the same good taste
He should know when he’s gone on his business trips
I can’t help watchin’ his woman
‘Cause I’m losin’ my grip
I wish he didn’t trust me so much
I think he really trusts me too much
Though I swear, all is not my will
But there’s a way
There’s a way she make me feel
Lord, I’m scared, so scared of what I do
If she starts feelin’ same way too
You shouldn’t trust me so much
(We got a problem)
I think you really trust me too much
It’s not that she leads me on
I’m gettin’ there all by myself
But just being with her all, all alone
I can’t help but hopin’
That he never comes home
I wish he didn’t trust me so much
(We got a problem)
I think you really trust me too much
Though I swear, all is not my will
(Is not my will)
But it’s somethin’ about the way
The way she makes me feel
Lord, I’m so scared, scared of what I do
If she starts feelin’ the same way too
I wish he didn’t trust me so much
(Ooh)
I think he really trusts me too much
(I got a problem)
You can see, I’m caught up
(I wish he didn’t trust me so much)
Caught up in the middle
(I think he really trusts me too much)
And I’m down, tired of playing
