lyrics

I TRIED MY BEST (BUT MY BEST WOULDN’T DO)

I just wouldn’t be me unless I tried everything
I’ve been around the block a time or two
I gave you my word, swallowed my pride
Now I get taken for a ride

I’ve been loyal to a fault
Being loyal to you
I tried my best, but my best wouldn’t do

You just wouldn’t be you, unless you wrecked everything
It’s the only time you have the follow-through
With wide open eyes, I bought all your lies
Now comes the biggest surprise

I pushed your rock up that hill
To watch it roll down on you
I tried my best, but my best wouldn’t do
