How Hard Do I Gotta Try? - Blue Morris

From: Unlikely Rockstars

Working all these hours pushing buttons on a screen
Don't know what the buttons do or even what they mean
I know I'm just a wheel hear my creak
For me the only reason is a pay cheque every week

I think of all the years that I'll be working here
Try to save some money but it's not enough I fear
Most of that will go to rent and beer
That I pour on my heart to make my sorrows disappear

How hard do I gotta try?
How hard do I gotta try?
Try and try and try,
How fuckin' hard do I gotta try?

I had a girl and then I lost the girl then I got the girl again
I know that we'll be married it's just a question when
She says she wants to share her life
When there's money in the bank and our shit together that's when she'll be my wife

Years pass and the bank account is just about the same
Spend so much time together we are playing cruel games
We drink too much and live in a fog
Now she's leaving with the TV and joint custody of my dog

How hard do I gotta try?
How hard do I gotta try?
Try and try and try,
How fuckin' hard do I gotta try?

Weeks later she said she missed me so we had a kid instead
And fell in love all over again
And fell in debt all over again
When you got nothing left to lose but still so much left to prove
You just close your eyes
Walk through life and love your wife and try to be the best man you can

How hard do I gotta try?
How hard do I gotta try?
Try and try and try,
How fuckin' hard do I gotta try?
