Raheem DeVaughn – Try Again lyrics

I thought I'd hear your voice
(Hello, hello, hello)
But instead the operator says
Your number's changed
My apologies
(My apologies)

Please forgive me, please
For I've been selfish and I'm to blame

If I could reverse the years
(If I could reverse the years)
To take back all the tears
I'd rewrite the screenplay

But life don't work that way
(What you mean it don't work that way?)
So lonely here I lay
Wishing you was still my lady

When it's not easy to walk away
(Try, try, try, try again)
When you don't really mean what you say
(Try, try, try, try again)

When you feel incomplete
Don't you go losing sleep
I think you should try again
Can we try again? Try again

The perfume you used to wear
(The sweet perfume you used to wear)
Sometimes I smell it in the air and do a double take
And sometimes I play your song
(Sometimes I play your song)
Just to dance along, just to cut the pain

Please forget me not
(Don't forget, don't forget
Don't forget, don't forget me)

If ever you should tie the knot
Or just find somebody new
I hope this rights the wrongs that I've done
See, I composed this song
'Cause it's hell without you

See, winter's too cold without you
Summer too lonely without you
And I can't stop thinking about you
Can we try again?

Oh fall, that's when we met
Spring, it was times I can't forget
My Cinderella, my Juliet
Can we try again?
