Lyrics

Lord I’m Tryin’

It takes awhile sometimes
To overcome and calm down
When everything seems like an ending
Here at the desperate end of a bad deal
It’s not like I’m not tryin’
It can’t be all my fault
It’s not like I’m not tryin’

I was outside in the pouring rain
Wishing it would hail
Come down
And knock out all the lights in town
When’s that purging rain gonna come
It’s not like I’m not tryin’
It can’t be all my fault
It’s not like I’m not tryin’
It can’t be all I’ve done
All I’ve done

Until the morning come
I like awake exhausted
And then remember love is forgiveness
Even at the farthest end of a dead end
It’s not like I’m not tryin’
It can’t be all my fault
It’s not like I’m not tryin’
It can’t be all I’ve done
‘Cause lord I’m tryin
