Michael Penn – Try lyrics

I picked up that something of it
I could still try to make
Then watch me blink and overlook
What I undertake
'Til I don't try
I don't try
And I don't want to try to anymore

I would choose to accuse you
Strike the fire
Issue a decree
Ask you why
Watch you take the fifth as I
Give you the third degree

But I don't try
I don't try
I don't want to try you anymore
I don't try to anymore
I won't try you anymore

With a witness dismisses it's adjourned
And by heart the only rope that it's learned is
Mercifully do not prolong
If the way I'm rubbing you is wrong

That is why I kept away so
I'd look strange at your door
In my way, in a nutshell
I don't try
I won't try
I don't want to try you anymore
I can't try to anymore
I can't try you anymore
I don't try
