"Try" as written by and Nelly/west Furtado....
You've been looking for me in the most obvious places
Still I'm nowhere to be found
I'm perched atop the highest buildings in the city
And I'm inrigued as I look down

All the ants below share the same comfortable existence
But they still wear the same frown
What ashame that they can't see the beauty
That's surrounding them when there's so much around

Try don't choose to walk away
There's a part within your soul it just takes
Time to find it
When you try take time and seize the day

'Cause after today's gone
You'll never have the chance again
So try
While I sit here with so many thoughts

I'm listenign to the rain
Falling to the ground
I'm just hoping somday soon all thge unhappy people find
Solace in the sound

And listen to the old cliches that all the elders say
That life goes by too fast
I just wish there was some way that I could stop the clock
And make the good times last

Don't throw it all away no one
You must realize it's all in your mind
Don't emphasize the pain on one particular day
If you feel you're starting to slide

Just pull yourself together
Remember all that matters is you try
