lyrics

I Tried

Drowning now
there’s this hole in me and I can’t get out
filling up with so much doubt
yet again
I try to stay afloat but all I seem to do
Is sink into the depths of my soul
I fight to catch my breath I try and try again but
This is not the way to survive

Sometimes, life is such a burden
We all have our cross to bare
Sometimes I don't see clearly
Never knowing who the fuck I am

I tried to be fair
but you won’t comprehend
and I’ve tried to be there
Never knowing if you even care

Another day goes by
A stitch of thread in time (Nothings what it seems)
With each passing night
I waste away, I decay
I tried to read the writing in the stones and sand
But what the hell do they know?
I fight to catch my breath I try and try again but
This is not the way to survive

Sometimes, life is such a burden
We all have our cross to bare
Sometimes I don't see clearly
Never knowing who the fuck I am

I tried to be fair
but you won’t comprehend
and I’ve tried to be there
Never knowing if you even care
I tried to be fair
but you won’t comprehend
and I’ve tried to be there
Never knowing if you even care

I tried to kill this hunger
but It's coming back around again
and when I reach down deep inside
I find out who I really am

When will we wake up?
When will we learn?
The writings washed away

I tried to be fair
but you won’t comprehend
and I’ve tried to be there
Never knowing if you even care
I tried to be fair
but you won’t comprehend
and I’ve tried to be there
Never knowing if you even care
