When you came at night,
they were walking by.
When the light arrived,
they were still outside.
Know we tried.
When the news spread 'round,
We could hear voices.
As we walked into town,
There were eyes above us.
Know we tried,
Know we tried.

When the sun drops down,
we will say goodbye,
to those bending hills.
They have stood so quiet.
Know we tried
When the news spreads 'round,
that we've left to climb to the city's ?,
they'll be close behind
Know we tried,
Know we tried.

I picked you up,
I laid you down.
I picked you up,
I laid you down.
I picked you up.

Oh we tried,
know we tried,
know we tried,
know we tried.
