I'm trying hard to understand
I'm trying hard to do the things it takes to be a man
Life's slipping away from me
It's not the way I thought it'd be
Life's slipping away from me
It's not the way I thought it'd be
I'm trying hard to understand
And to know just who I am
I'm trying hard to get a break
Or just to give a damn
I'm trying hard to get away
But I always seem to stay
I'm trying hard to understand
The fucking words you say
Life's slipping away from me
It's not the way I thought it'd be
Life's slipping away from me
It's not the way I thought it'd be
(Away from me)
Somebody help me
I'm in this mess and I'm slipping away
Somebody help me
I'm in this mess and I'm slipping away
I'm trying hard to understand
But I don't know if I can
I'm trying hard to make the best
Out of this mess I'm in
Life's slipping away from me
It's not the way I thought it'd be
Life's slipping away from me
It's not the way I thought it'd be
Life's slipping away from me
I can't hold on
I can't believe it
Life's slipping away from me
It's not the way I thought it'd be
Somebody help me
I'm in this mess and I'm slipping away
Somebody help me
I'm in this mess and I'm slipping away
I'm trying hard to understand
