Tried to rip the heart from my lover’s chest
Tried to learn from the master, I’ve done my best
Even tried to shut myself off to the way my lover feels
Tried to take my ‘magination and make it real

Yes, I tried and I tried
Yeah, I tried and I tried
But I can’t be you
Though it hurts me to know that I failed
I can’t be you
Though you want me to be someone else
Well, I can’t be you
I can’t even be myself

Tried to always be the one to draw first blood
Pour salt into the wounds every chance I could
Even tried to blame my lover for my mistakes
I tried to point the finger each time my heart aches

Yes I tried and I tried
Yeah, I tried and I tried
But I can’t be you
Though it hurts me to know that I failed
Well, I can’t be you
Though you want me to be someone else
Well, I can’t be you,
No

I try to do everything
That you would do, yeah
Try to see everything
From your twisted point of view, yeah

Yes, I tried and I tried
I tried and tried and tried and tried and tried
But I can’t be you
Though it hurts me to know that I failed
I can’t be you
Though you want me to be someone else
Well, I can’t be you, no
I can’t be you, no
I can’t be you
I can’t even be myself

Tried to rip the heart from my lover’s chest
Tried to learn from the master
I’ve done my best . . .
