try too hard (hensley)
i get the strangest feeling whenever you’re around, and i guess i’ll just keep reeling, until you pull me in, a thread that you conceal behind batting and bashful eyes, i guess i just try too hard, then you’ll come back and jump in my lap, have you no clue, of what’s to come or what you’ve done, you’re deserving of the heartache you feel, it never mattered when we were just friends, you had me at hand, but then again i guess i just try too hard i hope the way i flow, would sync up with you, together we’d span space and time, if only you’d follow through, a mind can be too free and lose its way wafting on the breeze, so when it finally lands lost at sea, rest assured, there’s no way ashore, you sink, you sink (i swear to god i’ll hate you forever)...ive lost track of the time we spent, but i appreciate how much you said they meant but now it’s shit, and it never mattered when we were just friends, you had me at hand, your attempt at trying, it was crying, yeah i believe you’re upset, you gave up and gave in, so that maybe you would never have to try too hard.
