about

I Tried (c) 2002 W. Carroll

lyrics

If I tried to show you,
tried to know you,
made a show of the things below you
Would you know?

If I tried to meet you,
tried to you reach you
Oh, all the things that I could teach you
Could you go?

I tried so hard to hold you
I tried so hard to stop your crying
I tried so hard to make you see the light
Oh, lord, I tried
Oh, yes, I tried

If i tried to tell,
to unshell you,
Oh, I promise you I wouldn't try to undersell you
Do you know?

If I tried to strut up,
Be a cut-up,
Oh, I wouldn't blame you for telling me to shut up
Do you know?

I tried so hard to hold you
I tried so hard to keep you away
I tried so hard to think of what to say
Oh, lord, I tried
Oh, yes, I tried

I tried so hard to hold you
I tried so hard to stop your crying
I tried so hard to make you see the light
Oh, lord, I tried
Oh, yes, I tried
Oh, lord, I tried
