You're not even 17, but I see you every night in my dreams. Oh how I wish I were just like you, and could just let it roll, and play it cool. But oh, baby girl I know it's hard when ya wanna be in love, but you're still on guard. I wish I could say, "i'll make things right," but I fear if I do, I'll start a new fight.

Oh, trying so hard...

Take this last leap, and just close your eyes, I know I'll be wrong if I try to be right. I'll try to be cool, and play it by ear, but oh, I'm a fool, and damn I can't hear. If ya know me by now you know I'll get by, but I'm not a man, and guess what boys cry. So if ya want love playing my part, I'm lying wide open, and you've fucked up my heart.

I know what I want, but I just can't say if I spit it out things will be ok. I wish I were strong, and could do what's right, but oh my baby girl you're in my dreams at night. I think with my heart and not with my head, I fucked up my words, forget what I said. I didn't mean a thing that I said last night, except when I said I want to hold you tight.

Oh, trying so hard...

Take this last leap, and just close your eyes, I know I'll be wrong if I try to be right. I'll try to be cool, and play it by ear, but oh, I'm a fool, and damn I can't hear. I'm sorry I'm not who ya want me to be, I'm trying so hard, and hell, that's just me. Don't tell me I lie, believe me, it's true, I used to love someone, and that someone was you.

Oh, trying so hard...
