Try Hard Lyrics

She dropped out of school,
'Cause she don't need the grades
The colors in her hair,
Don’t seem to fade
I get dressed up when I go out,
But she gets dressed down

And she’s 17
I told her I’m 20
I can’t take her out
'Cause moms got no money
It’s stuff like this that makes me wish that I can change somehow

Sitting here at home,
It’s obvious that she’s so out of reach,
And I’m finding it hard
'Cause she makes me feel,
Makes me feel,
Like I try,
Like I try
Like I’m trying to hard

'Cause I'm not bein' me
It’s gettin’ me down
That she makes me think
Makes me think
That I try
That I try
That I’m trying to hard again

She’s got a rose tattoo,
But she keeps it covered
I play guitar,
But she’s into drummers
She’s seen my face around,
But she doesn’t even know my name

I pierce my lip so she thinks I’m cool,
I ripped my jeans and dropped out of school
I followed her around the town,
But she thinks that I’m a weirdo now

Sitting here at home,
It’s obvious that she’s so out of reach,
And I’m finding it hard
'Cause she makes me feel,
Makes me feel,
Like I try,
Like I try
Like I’m trying to hard

'Cause I'm not bein' me
It’s gettin’ me down
That she makes me think
Makes me think
That I try
That I try
That I’m trying to hard again

Right now who knew?
That she’s in the crowd at my show
Nothin’ to lose,
She’s standing right in the front row
A perfect view,
She came along on her own
I knew somethin’ I should know

You’re so out of reach,
And I’m finding it hard
'Cause you make me feel,
Make me feel,
Yeah she makes me feel,
She makes me feel

She’s so out of reach,
And I’m finding it hard
'Cause she makes me feel,
Makes me feel,
Like I try,
Like I try
Like I’m trying to hard

'Cause I'm not bein' me
It’s gettin’ me down
That she makes me think
Makes me think
That I try
That I try
That I’m trying to hard again

Trying to hard again
