I've Tried

By Bruce Clifford

I donít have the time to waste
I never knew I was in a race
We never meant to see the other side
All the futures, all these passing by's

We never thought we could be like before
All the manufactured reasons walked out that door
We never tried to see the other dream
The many reasons why we might never know what this means

Now Iím looking for a brand new light
The transformation from the darkest sky
Whatever the reason during the middle of the night
At least I know Iíve tried
Oh how Iíve tried

You never told me there as no other way out
You never said to me you were no longer on the cloud
You never took my hand when I took that leap of faith
You never looked into my eyes as I drifted off into space

I donít have the time to waste
I never knew I was in a race
We never meant to see the other side
All of the reasons why we had to say goodbye

©11/1/13 Bruce Clifford
