The more we try
Sung by - kenny loggins -

Some lessons are forever
Never need to change
Write and the word is written
Then we turn the page

But some lessons take forever
Time and time again
Caught in a battle that you can't surrender
And can never win

You tried to make me the boy of your dreams
The ones that you never could find
You thought you saw your face in mine
The more we try, the more we just get lonely
Though you've shown me how
The things you say are true
The lesson learned
Is no concern
If you don't even know me
To need love is all I really learned from you

The more we try, the more we just get lonely
Though you've shown me how
The things you say are true
The lessons learned
Are no concern
Cause you don't even know me
Sure you've done what you can do
But when all our time is through
To be loved is all I ever needed of you
