PAGE-1

I SAW YOU LATE LAST NIGHT, YOU WEREN’T LOOKING WELL
YOU HAD A TROUBLE SMILE, EVERYONE COULD TELL
EVERYBODY KNOWS, WHAT YOU’RE GOING THRU
THE SECRET YOU CAIN’T HIDE
HAS GOT A HOLD OF YOU

I KNOW THAT I CAIN’T TELL HOW YOU FEEL INSIDE
I HAVEN’T GOT A CLUE OF THAT SIDE OF LIFE

I’VE SEEN YOU TRY, TRY OH I’VE SEEN YOU TRY
FIGHT THE DEMONS DEEP INSIDE
AND THEY WON’T LET YOU SLIDE
AND THEN YOU TRY, TRY LORD WE WACHED YOU TRY
YOU GOTTA HEED THE CRY

REMEMBER ALL THOSE YEARS AGO WHEN WE WERE YOUNG
STAYING UP ALL NIGHT, WE HAD LIFE ON THE RUN

WE’D PLAY THOSE SONGS TIL TWO, OR THREE, OR FOUR AM WE’D WRITE A BRAND NEW VERSE AND TRY IT ALL ONCE AGAIN

AND THEN WE TRY, TRY OH HOW HARD WE TRIED
WE PULLED IT OUT RIGHT FROM THE HEART
AND LAID IT ON THE LINE
AND THEN WE TRY, TRY OH WE REALLY TRIED
WE WERE BOUND TO HEED THE CRY

THE MYSTERY TO ME IS HOW YOU GOT THIS WAY
YOU HAD IT ALL TOGETHER,
THAT WHAT WE ALL WOULD SAY
A BEAUTIFUL CHILD, A BEAUTIFUL WIFE
A HOUSE OUT IN THE SUBURBS,
YOU’D THINK YOU GOT IT RIGHT


THE CRY

AND IF I HAD THE ANSWER THAT I COULD GIVE TO YOU
I WOULD PAY THE PRICE TO MAKE YOUR DREAMS COME TRUE

AND THEN YOU TRY, TRY, OH I’VE SEEN YOU TRY
WRESTLE ALL THOSE DEMONS
GOT A HOLD OF YOU INSIDE
AND THEN YOU TRY, TRY
LORD WE WACHED YOU TRY
YOU GOTTA HEED THE CRY

NOW YOU TRY, TRY, OH I’VE SEEN YOU TRY
WRESTLE ALL THOSE DEMONS
GOT YOU BEATEN DOWN INSIDE
AND THEN YOU TRY, TRY
LORD WE WACHED YOU TRY
YOU GOTTA HEED THE CRY
