I am not a child now.
I can take care of myself.
I mustn't let them down now.
Mustn't let them see me cry.
I'm fine
I'm fine.
I'm too tired to listen.
I'm too old to believe
All these childish stories.
There is no such
Thing as faith and trust and pixie dust.
I try
But it's so hard to believe.
I try
But I can't see what you see.
I try
I try
I try

My whole world is changing
I don't know where to turn
I can't leave you waiting
But I can't stay and watch the city burn (umm)
Watch it burn

Cause I try
But it's so hard to believe.
I try
But I can't see what you see.
I try
I try
I try and try to understand the distace in bettween
The love I feel, the things I fear and every single dream

I can finally see it
Now I have to believe
All those precious stories
All the world is made of faith and trust and pixie dust

So I'll try
Cause I finally believe
I'll try
Cause I can see what you see

I'll try
I'll try
I will try

I'll try

To fly

    This song as always been one of my favorites ever since I was a little girl and no matter how old I get it always will be because it tells us to believe in ourselves. Each song has a story all we need to do is listen. This one tells us to believe which just makes this song even more amazing than ever. I always listen to it when I feel like the world is on my case and it helps me to remember all I have to do is believe in myself, my talents, my skills, my abilities and that the people around me will always be there for me.

    This is the song i am singing for my senior song. Being a senior this year has made me realise all the little things i didnt have faith in, but eventually grew into realization that there is hope.

    It's a sweet song with amazing music. Maybe i'm using dramatization here but this song describes how we all feel sometimes in life. Sometimes things are hard that's life and you can only try to get thru those little moments
