Robbie Dupree – We Both Tried lyrics
What can you do
When love decides to pass you by?
The more we try
The less we get along

There comes a time
In every life
When right and wrong
Is what comes between us
We've seen us fall apart
Down to the seams
Dreams

We both tried
Then love died
Old standbys
Well, nice try
So goodbye

Our love reminded me
Of wishing on a star
It was hard to feel anything
It put us through the paces
With total disregard
For the love between us
Refused to grow
Refused to spread her wings
Her dreams

We both tried
Then love died
We couldn't fool each other
Old standbys
Well, nice try
So goodbye
Goodbye

You know we both tried
Tried to get ourselves together
Then love died
But we couldn't fool each other
Old standbys
Well, nice try
So goodbye
Oh, goodbye
Goodbye, goodbye

We both tried
But we couldn't fool each other
Then love died
'Cause we needed something better
Old standbys (Old standbys)
Well, nice try (Nice try)
So goodbye (Goodbye)

We both tried
We both tried to fool each other
Then love died
'Cause we needed something better
Old standbys (Old standbys)
Well, nice try (Nice try)
So goodbye (Goodbye)
Oh

We both tried
We both tried and tried to fool each other
Then love died
Couldn't be believed in each other
Old standbys
Well, nice try (Nice try)
So goodbye (Well, goodbye, baby)
