lyrics

And I’m Trying

VERSE 1

Right now the weight of the world
Is weighing in on my world
And all that I can see
Is what it made me
And maybe I’m the one that took it all for granted
That took it all for granted
And maybe I'm the one that gets left here stranded
Gets left here stranded

PRECHORUS

And maybe you are why I’m here
Have I changed after all these years
And maybe you are why I’m here
Have I changed after all these years

CHORUS

And I’m trying hard to smile (echo)
Is this really all worthwhile
Following all half-hearted miles
And always trying so hard to hide

VERSE 2

Right now, this space is a waste
Of all the things that could be
And all that I can be,
Is what you make me
And maybe you’re the only one it knows could break me,
And it could break me
And maybe you're the only one it knows could save me,
And it might save me

PRECHORUS CHORUS

I’m forgetting how to smile (echo)
Is this really all worthwhile
Following all half-hearted miles
And always trying so hard to hide

VERSE 3

You made me,
Told them make me all the words I still can’t recall
You made me, oh you made me
You will always be my start
I had to first break to know my heart
You’re always broken when I see you
Finally you’re doing what you need to
The way you remind me of
All the times I felt numb
Every time I felt the call was wrong,
And still I’m wondering

CHORUS

Why I find it hard to smile
Is this really all worthwhile
Following all the blackened miles
And always trying so hard to hide
