Couldn't Try Any Harder

Author:

I never dreamed of a this time
just stumbled and fell into you
and I think it's alright
no matter what we say or we do

I never said that I could
compare to the light inside you
and I never said I'm alright
or that dreams would ever come true

I couldn't try any harder
any harder to get over this pain
all the ways we restarted
again and again and again

I never remember faces
or the names disappeared in the graves
and I'm not sure the departed
ever cared when I misbehaved

I never fear the unknown
or obsticles stuck in my way
and someday when I grow up
I hope I'm feeling the same

Cause I couldn't try any harder
any harder to get over this pain
all the ways we restart, yeah
again and again and again

I never went downtown
to stare at the lights or the names
or get lost in the feelings
history heros who never got played

I never will be over
I rise with the sun in the rain
and laugh at the wind blowing
kicking the sand in my face

I couldn't try harder
any harder to get over the pain
all the ways to restart, yeah
again and again and again

again and again and again
again and again and again
and again.
