  1. Why Try

From the recording Why Try

Lyrics

Verse
So you heard her say she loves me
(I thought you'd understand) that I was once her man
It's (got nothing to do with me and you)
Then you heard her say she needs me
(You have to realize) we've been through this a thousand times
My future with you's what's on my mind
We've talked about (all the things that's been said)
I thought I squashed (all the thoughts that you dread)
She broke my heart in two and I hoped that it would be mended by you
(But what I'm getting is not what I was expecting)
So why should I try, try
 
Chorus
I think that I’ll go out of my mind
To deal with this thing one more time
You (think) I'm gonna (lie), then (why should I try) and why should I try
(Think) (lie) oh-ohh (why should I try) to be good to you
(Think, lie) think I'm gonna lie (why should I try) why should I try...
 
Verse
When I tell you that I'm faithful
(Why can't you just believe), baby it's been a while
It's (so darned hard to get you to smile)
When work is busy and I'm (not home till late at night)
You think something's just not right, and this (mistrust) is blowing my mind
You check my neck (as if something's there)
When you wore my coat (said you'd found a hair)
It's not my fault that he did you wrong
And you never managed to move on
(From how he hurt you) I swore (I won't desert you)
Now why would I try, would I try, whoo
You'd (think that I'd go out of my mind)
To (deal with this thing one more time)
You (think) I'm gonna (lie), then (why should I try) should I try yeah, yeah
(Think) (lie) think I'm gonna lie (why should I try) why should I try
 
Change
So I'm gonna find somebody
Who knows how to treat someone
Who knows that we're worth much more
Than one night of having fun
From where we both are standing
Decision is right at hand
You think I'm inclined to cheat
After all I'm just a man
 
Chorus
(Why should I, should I) Wasn't I good to you?
(Why should I, should I) Remarkably faithful too
(Why should I, should I) Looking the other way
(Why should I, should I) You gon’ drive me away
(Why should I, should I) Wasn't I good to you?
(Why should I, should I) Remarkably faithful too
(Why should I, should I) Looking the other way, yeah yeah
(Why should I, should I) You gon’ drive me away
