The Jeff Healey Band – I Tried lyrics

Maybe I could have loved you better
Maybe we only needed time
We couldn't make it last forever
But I tried
I tried

Maybe I gave my heart too easy
Maybe your heart was never mine
I did my best to make you happy
Yes I tried
You know I tried

Who knows where the love goes
When the loves gone
You just hold on
And you hold it all inside, yeah

I tried to give you love
It was not enough
It was not enough to keep you satisfied

Maybe I couldn't make you love me
But I tried
You know I tried

I tried to just give you love
It was not enough
It was not enough to keep you satisfied
I couldn't keep you in my life

And so I'll have to let you go now
Guess now I got to say good-bye
I'll learn to live my life without you
I don't know how
But I'll try
Yes I'll try

Oh guess we couldn't make it baby
After all this time we just couldn't get it right
But I tried
Yes I tried
