"Even If We Try" as written by and Winston James Yellen....
Even if we try
Even if we try
To make ourselves alright
To mend our severed lives
All the rivers rage
Descend upon the stage
Running melodies
I lift my voice to sing

ouh ouh ouh ouh ouh
ouh ouh ouh ouh
ouh ouh

Holding to the past
Clouding in my glass
Never on my youth
Remember what is true
As we watch the colours
Free with the cover
Laces set on fire
Truth found in them liar

ouh, ouh ouh ouh ouh
ouh ouh ouh ouh
ouh ouh

Stumbling down the heel side
In the waging moon light
Give me, calling
And waiting on the doldrums
Let ourselves get lonesome
Lies, past over
Down in Hallowed Grove
Its wilting, whitened bones
Come on Johnny please
Won't you speak to me

ouh ouh ouh ouh ouh ouh ouh ouh
ouh ouh ouh ouh ouh ouh ouh ouh
ouh ouh ouh ouh
ouh ouh ouh ouh

ouh ouh ouh ouh ouh ouh ouh ouh
ouh ouh ouh ouh ouh ouh ouh ouh
ouh ouh ouh ouh
ouh ouh ouh ouh

ouh ouh ouh ouh ouh ouh ouh ouh
ouh ouh ouh ouh ouh ouh ouh ouh
ouh ouh ouh ouh
ouh ouh ouh ouh

Ouh ouh
ouh ouh

    General Commentjust some thoughts... :)

    it sounds a bit like "descend upon this age" rather than "stage"... and I can't make out that next line, but I can't heat "running melodies" no matter how I try...

    I think it's "hear me, calling" instead of "give me, calling"… and maybe "made ourselves our lonesome nights" (not sure though)

    I don't think it's "down on call we'll grow" … I'm not certain, but could be something more like "down long hollow road…"?
    and the next line is "it's wilted, winding bones"

    General CommentMy gosh, this is one of the most beautiful songs I've ever heard.
    It's life, that's what it's about. Life-- trying and trying and failing and almost losing hope, but accepting that.
