Jan Howard – When We Tried lyrics
You can smother me with kisses and feel free
To let your tender arms surround me
You can love me without fear but don't come here
And try to build no dreams around me

A man's a fool who looks for love
For one time in a lifetime he might find it
So don't waste no time a talking about how love can hurt
'Cause I don't need reminded

I'll take my happiness a little at a time
Just anywhere I find it
Try to feel at home just knowing that
Should you decide to leave I wouldn't mind it

And when you're gone I'll not recall a love
That only lived one night and died
Just a mem'ry of what little happiness
We found together when we tried

I can almost read your mind
And what I find's not hard for me to understand
'Cause a woman's love is stronger one
Remembers even longer than a man

And if I should even feel that you're pretending
That I'm her I wouldn't mind it
If there's any happiness left
In a lonely world like this let's try to find it

I'll take my happiness a little at a time
Just anywhere I find it
Try to feel at home just knowing that
Should you decide to leave I wouldn't mind it

And when you're gone I'll not recall a love
That only lived one night and died
Just a mem'ry of what little happiness
We found together when we tried
