Guy Clark – Tryin' To Try lyrics

I threw a rock through your window
Just to let you know I love you
Just to let you know I care and I ain't scared
To have you see how I feel

I blew a kiss through your keyhole
Just to let you know I'm breathin'
Just to try and smack you in the heart,
If I was smart
I'd give up and go back home


I'm not tryin' to say I'm sorry
I'm trying to say I love you
I'm not tryin' to make excuses
Nor set myself above you
I'm not tryin' to rearrange it
I'm not sayin' I can change it
The only thing I'm tryin' to do is try

I was hidin' by the back porch
Just to try and catch you leavin'
Just to try and catch you unaware
I don't care
If that ain't fair, I ain't proud


I leaned on your doorbell
Just to see if you would answer
Just to see if you would open up,
No such luck
I'll come back when you calm down

Chorus Twice
