Belabour Trying

Trying endlessly, but only in vain
But theres nothing that I could do
Nothing to end the pain
Yet still I'm trying for you


I know that you are scared
And no matter how hard I try
I'll never make a difference
I'll still have to hear you cry



You always thought that I was stronger
I always said nothing could tear us apart
I didn't know that it would end like this
I guess it was predestined from the start

Here I am alone
Trying for you
Here I am tonight
I dont know what to do



Even though I barely speak
Am I hard to understand?
These days I get so weak
I'm trying so hard for you

Still we're so incomplete
This life is so demanding
I can barely compete
With the problems emanating

Its an inevitable defeat
And yet here I am still
After everything thats happened
Nothing's ever blighted my will

It comes pretty close
In fact, almost everyday
Bright lights casting shadows
Its never going to be okay

I don't know what to say
To make it okay tonight
But if you'll just stay
It might turn out all right

I am not afraid to keep on trying
I am not too scared to do it alone
Just, please stop the lying
I hate the place I have to call home

I've never been a big 'believer'
Still I'm praying for relief
Yet my sadness grows steeper
Always testing my belief

And still on the other side
Of a tell all, surreal mind mirror
Where no feelings can hide
Lost in suffocating furor

I guess I already lost
In this one chance game
I'm paying the full cost
For this broken picture frame


Trying endlessly, but only in vain
But theres nothing that I could do
Nothing to end the pain
Yet still I'm trying for you
