Emmylou Harris – You Can't Say We Didn't Try lyrics

Just because we're scared
Doesn't mean we're wrong
The world won't end today
If both of us move on

But didn't we have a time?
You can't take that away
We've had a change of mind
I think it's safe to say

That I've been holding on to you
And you've been holding on to me
'Cause neither of us wants to be
The first to say goodbye

And so it goes, we must admit
How we both thought that this was it
Though we couldn't make the pieces fit
You can't say we didn't try

Close the window, pull the shade
Turn the key and lock the door
We'd best forget the plans we made
We don't live here anymore

Maybe somewhere down the line
We'll remember who we were
Another place, another time
Some old feeling starts to stir

But I've been holding on to you
And you've been holding on to me
'Cause neither of us wants to be
The one to say goodbye

And so it goes we've grown apart
Guess you could say we lost a heart
And even though we came up short
You can't say we didn't try
