Drake – Try Harder lyrics

Sometimes I feel like Lohan and Hilary Duff
Are the only ones with enough
To feel what I'm about to say in this song
When they want you to be like somebody else
And you just wanna be yourself
And you do it and get the feeling it's wrong
It is when all the press articles happening
And the cameras get to snappin
And they try to make you out as a lie
Symbolic cos you were just trying to please em'
By using logic and reason
It's a lose lose why even try
When your ideas so frequently get rejected and people just get neglected
And They never really know how to feel
Phone calls is something that you're expecting
For someone without ethics to try and make em a mill
You never noticed the fact you might be working what I'm receivin' at first
And niggas wanna say that you ain't around
I mean there's always some blame to put on yourself (yourselves)
Instead of claimin' that you couldn't help and maybe next time you were (ain't) In town

You gonna try to try harder cos
Try harder cos

Try -Try-Try-Try

And the managers make you circum to pressure
And you spitin' the pressure than most of the rappers running the game
Concerned that people who copy what's in the past
And turn the profit to cash
There's time I would have done it the same
I mean I got me a range
Also got me a guilty conscience
That made you tell anybody I meet that I ran
Sometimes I wish that I woulda' just chilled on the sneakers
And watched the game from the bleachers
Cos I'm really telling me what I spent
In a house that I promised to get my mother
Don't compensate for the other time
I wasted late out at the club
Instead of sitting in once a week for some dinner
I working hard on the winner so this album is a labour of love
You say as long as I'm staying out of the streets
And just spending money on beats that
She can rest without a toss and a turn
Cos she know that my reputation perceives me
And people watch me on tv
That's exactly why I often get burned
But I'm gonna try to.
