Assemblage 23 – Tried lyrics

I tried I failed to believe
In the reward I would receive
If only heaven's distant sun
Would burn away all the things I'd done

I tried to no avail
To keep my eyes from growing pale
But my vision came too late
And my belief started to abate

Like a tide recedes from rocky shores
I drew back no matter how much you implored
I have failed to see the beauty here
Everything I loved has disappeared

Worlds collide without a sound
And flames arise from frozen ground
But nothing can bring back my faith
You tried your best, but I'm afraid that it's too late

I looked into your eyes
For some sign of surprise
That I would question all of this
That I would stand upon that precipice

But the look would never come
As you just stood there growing numb
And your eyes dropped to the ground
In search of something I might find profound

Like a tide recedes from rocky shores
I drew back no matter how much you implored
I have failed to see the beauty here
Everything I loved has disappeared

Worlds collide without a sound
And flames arise from frozen ground
But nothing can bring back my faith
You tried your best, but I'm afraid that it's too late

I tried I failed to forgive
For the life you made me live
A confusing ride at best
And at it's worst it seemed so meaningless

If there's a lesson to be learned
Some sort of wisdom to be earned
It held too great a price
It required too great a sacrifice

Like a tide recedes from rocky shores
I drew back no matter how much you implored
I have failed to see the beauty here
Everything I loved has disappeared

Worlds collide without a sound
And flames arise from frozen ground
But nothing can bring back my faith
You tried your best, but I'm afraid that it's too late

Worlds collide without a sound
And flames arise from frozen ground
But nothing can bring back my faith
You tried your best, but I'm afraid that it's too late
