(LOTS of repetition here.  Maybe too much? There is like negative music for this song right now so it's really up in the air.)

Chorus

Hands reaching

And grasping

And holding

 

Palms sweating

And shaking

And molding

 

Arms bending

Contorting

And hating

 

I tried and I tried and I tried and I tried

 

Eyes closing

And weeping

And cursing

 

Mouth biting

Apologies

bursting

 

Ears twitching

And smarting

And burning

 

I tried and I tried and I tried and I tried

 

Verse 1

I thought it was good

I thought it was right

I held ice cold arms

In the dead of the night

 

I’d kill for a nod

I’d kill for a kiss

I’d kill for ignoring

That love isn’t this

 

But I tried and I tried and I tried and I tried

I tried and I tried and I tried

 

Verse 2

I held out my hands

I held out my heart

I tried to come closer

You kept us apart

 

I’d kill for a smile

I’d kill for a wink

I’d kill for ignoring

The way that you think

 

And I tried and I tried and I tried and I tried

I tried and I tried and I tried

 

Bridge

You wanted to love me

I don’t think that you could

But you tried and you tried and you tried

 

I wanted to love you

Enough that it seemed like you would

And I tried and I tried and I tried

 

And I tried and I tried

And I cried and I cried

Because it was never good enough

Woah oh, woah oh, woah OH

 

End

So I tried and I tried and I tried

But I’m tired, and I’m tired, I’m so tired
