(Why Didn’t I) Try

Words by Joseph Lewczak
Music by Joseph Lewczak and Paavana Kumar

 

1.    Spent the night drinking, down our memories,  
Trying to find the piece, of the love I had lost 
I gave it up so easily, 
I just didn’t know, how much it would cost
I felt my heart did not belong, although I loved you all along
Too soon I had to say goodbye, all I want to know is 

CHORUS:

Why, why didn't I try?
Why didn't I care enough, why wasn’t I strong enough?
Why, why didn't I try?
Why didn’t I fight for us, why couldn’t I conquer this? 

Why didn't I try . . . 

2.     And now I’m still sinking, sweeping tears away
As I see us grow up, near where I now call home
I felt the tear, so painfully,
It’s clear I was wrong, and now I’m alone
I felt my heart did not belong, although I loved you all along
Too soon I had to say goodbye, all I want to know is  

REPEAT CHORUS

BRIDGE:

How did you love me, despite all of my flaws?  
I should have pushed us through the wall pulled us back from the fall.  
Why didn’t I come through, and admit to the lies?
Why didn’t I try to, save the love of my life ?

REPEAT CHORUS

3.     The life we were building, I’ve thrown it all away
I killed your soul, without any thought
I let it go so senselessly, 
And I was the one, that I should have fought 
II felt my heart did not belong, although I loved you all along
Too soon I had to say goodbye, all I want to know is 

REPEAT CHORUS
