I tried so long

I fought so hard

But all my fighting left me scarred

 

Don’t you pity

Don’t you dare

I know my faults

Mistakes are clear

 

I met a lonely woman

On a street corner last night

Such a foggy winter

She gave me such a fright

 

She smiled and whispered,

“Right place, right time.”

My soul on her mind

She had death in her eyes

 

Brought a gun to my switchblade fight

Just you and me in this house tonight

And you can try to make it out alive

Like I tried

 

Tuck me in tight

 

I’m closing doors on this switchblade fight

No one ever makes it out alive

You can try your best to survive

Like I tried

Like I tried

Like I tried

Like I tried

 

Never see the daylight

 

I tried so long

I fought so hard

But all my fighting left me scarred
