I Tried

This song is by Jess Klein and appears on the album Draw Them Near (2000).

My lover looks me in the eye
Says, baby, you failed me
If your love is really true
Why don't I feel set free?
Bail me out, baby,
I'm not meant for this prison cell
So I fought for him
How could I know he'd brought it on himself?

So now I'd like to say
Final score aside
That even though I failed in your eyes
I tried
I tried

So I bailed him out with all my cash
I bailed him out with my love
Distracted all the prison guards
With storms I begged from above
I even pulled the warden over to one side
I said me for him
It's fair I swear
My penance for his pride

So now I'd like to say
Final score aside
That even though I failed in your eyes
I tried
I tried

With all the pain in this world that my love
Could go to change
How could I fail in freeing only one man
From his own cage?

You know, it hurts to think of him
Cursing me for leaving
And it hurts to think of me
No longer believing
But in the end he told me
Sorry isn't good enough
And it finally occurred to me
Why his life is so damn rough

So now I'd like to say
Final score aside
That even though I failed in your eyes
I know I hurt you
Maybe I lied
So blame me till the day that I die
But I tried
I tried
I tried

I tried
I tried
