Try Tonight is an unreleased track recorded between 2005 and 2006. It was track eight for the album Sirens, which Lana recorded under the name May Jailer, an early alter ego....
can't put my finger on it
but i know i want it
i'm willing to try another way
but as if i get by another day

back and forth, i don't get anywhere
and i've been searching everywhere…

and i'll try tonight
just try tonight

happy as the moon shine
sifting in the night time
clichés find a home inside of him
when he enters, all of the lights go dim
he's so sure, he got a tragic lifestyle
and i'm so sure, i can make that man smile…

and i'll try tonight
just try tonight

a dark room in the night time
is how he spends all his time
if he could go on without your help
then he would do it all it all by himself
but i don't think he got strength to muster
and he done a lot lackluster

he'll try tonight
tonight get high

he'll try tonight
to not get high
but he will

he will
he will
yes, he will

mmm

    My InterpretationI've been thinking this song involves an alter ego. Given Lana's history I'm guessing it involves alcohol. In the beginning she is trying to quit drinking. She knows she wants to be sober, but recognizes its going to be hard. As the night goes on she isn't able to stay sober.

    "when he enters, all of the lights go dim
    he's so sure, he got a tragic lifestyle"

    This first "He" is the drink itself. As the song continue the "He" is her when she is drunk.

    "if he could go on without your help
    then he would do it all it all by himself"

    Her drunk persona is requesting help from her sober persona, and is promising to try again, tonight.
