You Try So Hard

She comes to you so unexpectedly
calling on you in the middle of the night.
You start to wonder are you who she thought you'd be.
She takes your hand, says it'll be alright.

You try so hard to get away, not a word to say.
You try so hard to make escape, turn and run away.
You try so hard to get away, not a word to say.
You try so hard to . . . so hard.

Free from the fears that seemed to pass nefore you,
no longer looking over your shoulder.
Facing the prospect she still might ignore you,
the room's getting hotter - you're just getting older.


Your thoughts are dry, yet your palms perspire
searching for words that never seem to surface.
Her heart is cold, yet her lips are on fire.
Your head's in a lion in the middle of the circus.


This record is a series of very solid and enjoyable tracks. It takes you on a great ride and gives you your money's worth. A very solid piece of work.
