"Try Too Hard" as written by and Alecia B/perry Moore....
Love, life
One speaks for the other one here
And love, life
One speaks for the other one now
We'll try to get by

[Chorus]
Did anyone try too hard?
Well I guess I did.
I guess I did. alright.
She'll break my heart.
Did anyone try too hard?
Well I guess I did.
I guess I did, alright.
And she'll break my heart.
She'll break my heart.

'Cause ever since the minute I saw your face.
I knew I wanted to be in that place, next to you.
And now I'll spend my whole life tryin'.
To be the one inside your arms.
And I'll try to get by.

[Chorus]

Break my little heart.

Isn't it alright?
Why can't it be just this once alright?
It will be you and me.

[Chorus]

    General Commenti think this is a pretty obvious song, but i watched the Blue Room interview with Teddy. he had written this song when he was 11 or 12 and he had tried to keep asking this girl out over and over again and she just kept saying no.

    i think it's pretty obvious that a few lines were added in, but it makes sense with the chorus.

    General CommentI enjoy the meaning behind this song but I don't like the extra guitar or base part on the line, "She'll break my heart.Break my little heart." in the secound chorus or on the lines, "Why can't it be just this once alright?" I just feel like the extra guitar sounds displaced and wrong. It kinda ruins the song. But they it was pretty amazing from a 11 year old to write.

    General CommentIt's a pretty obvious song, i agree, and it's also my love life in words. For the past 3 years, i've always TRIED to ask this guy out. Well, he broke my heart, like so MANY times. I think i DID try too hard. Well now.....nothing. I've given up, but not fully. I'm just not expecting anything. I'm just acting like he's no one and hope (still not expecting) that he'll accept me.

    Teddy is so sweet. I hope that girl he liked seriously regrets not accepting him. (she better burn in hell)
