I Tried

Updated on January 26, 2010

Life is simple life is true, up until I met you.

It seems now that all is lost, finding you at any cost.

I need your essence, I seek support, That you kill me is a second thought.

I know it now you bring me down, you lied to me I am such a clown

How did I let you control my life, stuck with you as if a wife

Let me go I beg you please, I am praying on my knees

The pain it is to let you go, I tell you so now you know

Leave me to suffer in your horror, leave me to die with dishonour

I beg you to release your grip, I beg you to allow just one to slip

I knew not what you'd do to me, now I just want to be free

Yet you hold me in your grasp, letting go is such a task

I knew not what you'd do to me, Please oh please let me be

I will never return to your house, leave me be I am but a louse

Free me from your hideous grasp, please oh please I beg you please

As I pray on my knees



I tried I tried to let you go, I tried so hard that you know

I am left with naught but hate, Hate it seems is my fate

I tried I tried to be free, but still you are here with me

I cannot accept the loss, my life it seems is the cost

I cannot live with your need, I crave you as if in greed

The end is coming fast I fear, if not I will disappear

Let me go I beg you please, let me go I cannot see

I tried I tried to let you go, I tried I tried you still say no
