"I Try" as written by and Jeremy/gray Ruzumna....
Games, changes and fears
When will they go from here
When will they stop
I believe that fate has brought us here
And we should be together babe
But we're not
I play it off, but I'm dreaming of you
And I'll keep my cool, but I'm fiendin'

I try to say goodbye and I choke
Try to walk away and I stumble
Though I try to hide it, it's clear
My world crumbles when you are not here
Goodbye and I choke
I try to walk away and I stumble
Though I try to hide it, it's clear
My world crumbles when you are not here

I may appear to be free
But I'm just a prisoner of your love
And I may seem all right and smile when you leave
But my smiles are just a front
Just a front, hey
I play it off, but I'm dreaming of you
And I'll try to keep my cool, but I'm fiendin'

I try to say goodbye and I choke
Try to walk away and I stumble
Though I try to hide it, it's clear
My world crumbles when you are not here
Goodbye and I choke
I try to walk away and I stumble
Though I try to hide it, it's clear
My world crumbles when you are not here

Here is my confession
May I be your possession
Boy, I need your touch
Your love, kisses and such
With all my might I try
But this I can't deny
Deny

I play it off, but I'm dreaming of you
(but I'm dreaming of you babe)
And I'll keep my cool, but I'm fiendin'

I try to say goodbye and I choke
Try to walk away and I stumble
Though I try to hide it, it's clear
My world crumbles when you are not here
Goodbye and I choke
I try to walk away and I stumble
Though I try to hide it, it's clear
My world crumbles when you are not here

    General CommentThis song always makes me cry- but not because of a relationship break-up.

    For me it reminds me of how my heart got broken...by the people I called my friends.

    General CommentFrom the song, it's obvious she loves the man, but can't be with him. A dear male friend shared this song with me. I was married but he wasn't. I cherish this song because he often said "I try like Macy Gray." I believe he was trying so hard to tell me how he feels . . . "I believe that fate has brought us here and we should be together babe, but we're not." It means so much to me. I know he loves me, but I don't think he knows how much I love him. It's been a couple of years and "my world crumbles when you are not near."

    General CommentLove the song and the multiple ways of looking at it but I see it as...



    “I believe that fate has brought us here
    And we should be together, babe
    But we're not”


    “I try to say goodbye and I choke
    I try to walk away and I stumble
    Though I try to hide it, it's clear:
    My world crumbles when you are not near”



    Basically she is in love with someone whom she most defiantly has a past with; that may or may not have halted negatively. It seems that she had her dead bolt locked in fear of getting hurt or what ever the case must be again but she uses these lyrics and this song to tell the person, that she wouldn’t like anything more then to try it again. So she is basically ready to stop using her dead lock because it is safe and she is ready to open up to this person again.

    General CommentWow ok to me this song is clearly not about a breakup, It's about being a pussy with a guy or girl you really really like but are only kinda decent friends with. Lyrically, it's closer to Taylor Swift's Teardrops on My Guitar than Mariah Carey's Always Be My Baby.

    There is absolutely nothing in this song that suggests the singer and the guy she's singing to were ever together.

    No, this song is about hiding your feelings for someone, and how frustrating it is dealing with it. I can definitely relate.

    General CommentThis song is very simple at first glance but there is so much that you just don't see. It is a song that you have to think about.

    General CommentThis should be my theme song for my relationship. I put up this front for some odd reason and try to hide my feelings. This song is absolutely me.
