I Tried

 

I tried to tell you who I was my love

My dreamer head forgetting today always moving ahead of the line

I tried to tell you who I wound through to find me

It’s not a tale of pride I tell; it’s not an honor badge for me

But I tried

 

I tried to tell you where I’d been my love

It’s been a long rough flight to this man and my lost baggage just found me

I tried to tell you where I walked and sometimes stayed

It’s not a history of shame; it’s not an easy ticket to claim

But I tried

 

Look up –now’s the time for your believing not the time for your sad mind

Look up – there’s a time we’ll all be leaving - our life’s ahead

I heard what you said – this book’s been read – you’re slipping away

But I just can’t stop now

I tried

 

I tried to tell you how I feel for you my love

My words alone are no strong case and the jury’s on your side

I tried to tell you how you’ve made me who I am

It’s not a symbol of my strength; it’s just a bitter pill to take

But I tried

 

Look up –now’s the time for your believing not the time for your sad mind

Look up – there’s a time we’ll all be leaving - our life’s ahead

I heard what you said – this book’s been read – you’re slipping away

But I just can’t stop now

I tried
