"Trying too hard" as written by Matthew Hardwidge and Phelim Byrne....
I said you're the woman from last night
Standing just to my right
You're the one that said I was sweet
When I left your kiss in my cheek
And said we could hook up sometime maybe
Well now is a good a time as any
She said I don't mean to offend you
But you're not quite how I remembered you
You seemed to look a lot better then
But I think you're nice as a friend
So pull up a seat and sit down
We're just having a drink and hanging out
So I tried to play it sexy and hurt
She said I came across as an introvert
So I changed to being a deep and profound
Until she asked me if I was feeling down
And when I told her that I was well read
She looked at me and just said : waouf waouf !

You're trying too hard but keep trying
You're trying too hard but keep trying
You're trying too hard but keep trying
Whatever it is I'm not buying

So I phoned her that weekend
She said she's seeing a barman called jonathan
He wears nice clothes and keeps his hair neat
But I could give her a call back next week
So next week we're out to coffee
She tells me she's really gone off me
I say gone off me' hey you don't know me
She said exactly so don't phone me
I said you haven't even given this a chance
She smiled and looked with a glance and said : waouf waouf !

You're trying too hard but keep trying
You're trying too hard but keep trying
You're trying too hard but keep trying
Whatever it is I'm not buying

You're trying too hard but keep trying
You're trying too hard but keep trying
You're trying too hard but keep trying
Whatever it is I'm not buying

When is this loneliness gonna end and
When will they stop crawling about their boyfriends (boyfriends)
When is a girl gonna get with me (me)
There must be one in this city see ' (see)
All I want is something that's real (real)
I'm tired of having to spiel (spiel)

Two months later she phones me up now
Saying hey I heard you're doing well now
Let's you and me go out for a meal
'cause I've never told you how I really feel
So how about it and you can meet me
I said which me did you want to see?
I got a girl now who knows who I am
So I can be my own man I'm flattered but

You're trying too hard but keep trying
You're trying too hard but keep trying
You're trying too hard but keep trying
Whatever it is I'm not buying

You're trying too hard but keep trying
You're trying too hard but keep trying
You're trying too hard but keep trying
Whatever it is I'm not buying
