"Trynna Finda Way" as written by Gerald Eaton, Brian West and Nelly Furtado....
I left my heart in San Francisco
With some club kids on a crowded street somewhere
The sky was red and he said,
"Would you like to come be a part of my North American Dream?"
I could try to chase life down, down the street and I'd find the separation
Of fact and fiction

I'm tryin' a find a way
I'm tryin' a find a right
And if I budge I just might
I'm tryin' a find a way
I'm tryin' a find a right
And if I budge I just might

I left my conscience somewhere with my rhythm
I heard about it from the mouth of a man
He was hopping some trains and combing the land
Looking for a lover (kiss) planted in the east
Trying to run from the dreaded fist beast
And it lies, it lies in the picket fence call
It was my own paradise with my own private corridor

I'm tryin' a find a way
I'm tryin' a find a right
And if I budge I just might
I'm tryin' a find a way
I'm tryin' a find a right
And if I budge I just might

So I'm dancing to a new beat and it came to me in bed
My veins became a strain of light that I let to flow instead
And a wish came to me like Peter Pan at my window and said
Evolve your destiny child and you'll never walk alone-no
You'll never walk alone, but
Travel to the land of surrender till' you can't cry no more
Till you can't, till you can't
And you'll never walk alone

You'll nev, you'll nev, you'll never walk alone, you'll nev,
You'll nev, you'll never walk alone
Never walk, never walk alone alone, alone
All this inspiration is passing me by
All I can do is chill when I really wanna fly
And this pollution do nothing but dirty up my mind
Faster than forever in the blink of an eye
To see past my lethargy is hard I feign
The beauty of my youth is
Gone but the chemicals remain

I'm tryin' a find a way
I'm tryin' a find a right
And if I budge I just might
I'm tryin' a find a way
I'm tryin' a find a right
And if I budge I just might

I travel to this land of surrender but I see it's all over me, over and over
Again and I try and I try and I try an angel on my left side and a devil
On my right and they fight and they fight and they fight they're fighting,
They're fighting, they're fighting for my attention...hello?
You have my attention
Do I have your attention
Can I have your attention please?
Please, you've made such, such an impression on me

    General CommentI think this song is a lot like "explode"--reflection on a past that has shaped who you are as a person, but perhaps includes some crazy shit. i totally identify with this song. how many teenage girls out there DO NOT go through some type of schizophrenic phase at some point?

    i love the line: the beauty of my youth is gone by the chemicals remain

    General CommentThis song reminded me of teenage drug addiction and trying to scrounge up the will and strength to overcome it.
