Peabo Bryson – I Try lyrics

I try to do the best I can for you
But it seems that it's not enough
Will you know I care even when you're not there?
But it's not what you want

You close your door when I wanna give you more
And I feel, I feel so out of place
And you'll know which [Incomprehensible]
Don't you think I'm good enough for you?

Tell me why can't, why can't you see that you're hurting me?
And I want, I want this pain to stop
So if you really care, I mean if you, if you really, really care
Can you open up your heart to me?

Can you make this pain
Can you make it stop, make it stop?
If you really care, if you really, really care
Can you open up your heart to me?
Can you open up to me?

You know that I try to be with you
You know that I wanted to see it through
You know that I wanted to make you mine
It was only a matter of time

That I try, I try, and I try, and I try
You know that I try, you know my [Incomprehensible]
In the hands of time
Show me the hands of time
