Matt Costa – I Tried lyrics

Rats they run across the field
Crows rest in the tree
Barking madly at each other
Standing from the rooftop I screamed
Won't you bark for me?
As you turn your back and fly away

Caught on the fence you left behind
Darted to an empty room I've tried
Oh I've tried, oh I've tririede
With nothing in return

When the wind that freed me
From the roots that tied me down
Now I need them back for comforting
Carvings that we left in branches
Scarred up on this tree
Lingering our thoughts you left with me

Calling the phone that you ignore
Slowly walking backwards from your door
Oh I've tried
Now we're done fighting
It's time that you return

Candle it's small light inside your
Window that I see
Hoping that the light still shines for me
Standing on the curbside I screamed
Please come back
As you turn your back and fly away

Groundhogs digging with their claws
Burying their loves with dirty paws
Oh I've tried
There's no denying
My head is in the dirt
