Kina Grannis – Try lyrics

Having nowhere else to go
He was lonely, she was cold
Whenever they went out
It seemed as though the world began to grow
The two they both had not felt big enough
To take in something of their own
And they kept moving along, singing a song
A sad song, of how they'd never learn
And they'd never know

To try
They've been paralyzed by fearful eyes
And realize you can move along
Write your own song
And be on your way

He had always dreamed to change
The world around him
Rearrange the mess
Because through his eyes, it all was beautiful
But not to all the rest
He had so much to say, he had so much to show
But he kept moving along, singing a song
A sad song, of how he'd never learn
And he'd never know


She was unsure of many things
But disregarding all the others, she loved to sing
But she was too scared to fail
Too scared to give it a go
And she kept moving along, singing a song
A sad song, of how she'd never learn
And she'd never know


So I'll stop running away
If you start learning to stay and speak your mind
And I'll keep writing my songs
If you stop thinking you're wrong today
