Chris Garneau – We Don't Try lyrics

You say you wanna die
'Cause the things don't work out right,
But you don't even try,
Though, neither do I,
And neither do my friends,
Though some of them pretend,
And it's easy if you cry,
'Cause you feel bad for yourself.

I think about my friend who died
And how her kids didn't get to say goodbye.
Though, neither did I.
No, neither did I,
And neither did my friends,
Though some of them pretend
And it's easy if you cry,
'Cause you feel bad for yourself.

If you pretend everything's fine,
I won't hurt myself or lie
To you or mom or dad,
Just pretend that I'm not sad
And we'll work everything out,
Even all the stuff we don't talk about.
It'd be easier if we cried.
We'd feel bad for ourselves.

It's supposed to snow tonight.
I hope the forecast is right
'Cause in the morning I sleep in 'til I'd like
And if it snowed outside it'd feel so nice
In here.
