So you’re leaving me again
Just walk away, I will say goodbye

Hold me again, please stay here with me
Hold me again, please stay here with me

There’s nothing more that I can do
To make you see the things I need you to
How come you don’t know me at all
Was I ever good enough for you
Feelings I have know you have the same
My hand in yours and I am happy

Every time I face
The same old questions
Never had answers
Scared of the things you’d say

Why can’t we try, one more time...can’t we try
Why can’t we try, just for me...can’t we try
Why can’t we try, one more time...can’t we try
Why can’t we try, just for me...can’t we try

Always did things with you in mind
Try to make you happy to make you smile
Just want you to be proud of me
Forgive my flaws I will do the same for you
Look back in love at us and we’ll smile
The man I am today ‘cause of you

Every time I face
The same old questions
Never had answers
Scared of the things you’d say

Why can’t we try, one more time...can’t we try
Why can’t we try, just for me...can’t we try
Why can’t we try, one more time...can’t we try
Why can’t we try, just for me...can’t we try

Hold me again, please stay here with me
Hold me again, please stay here with me

There’s nothing more that I can do
To make you see the things I need you to
Every time I face
The same old questions
Never had answers
Scared of the things you’d say

Why can’t we try, one more time...can’t we try
Why can’t we try, just for me...can’t we try
Why can’t we try, one more time...can’t we try
Why can’t we try, just for me...can’t we try
Why can’t we try

So this has been.my favorite song of OTEP's since it came out in 2004, and I always thought it was a song about a child's narrative of suffering in an abusive Christian home. But now that I am revisiting the lyrics, I am seeing something totally new. This song could be gospel of John but from the perspective of Jesus. Jesus was NOT having a good time up to and during the crucifixion. Everyone in the known world at the time looked to him with fear, admiration or disgust and he was constantly being asked questions. He spoke in "verses, prophesies and curses". He had made an enemy of the state, and believed the world was increasingly wicked and fallen from grace, or that he was in the "mouth of madness". The spine of atlas is the structure that allows the titan to hold the world up. Jesus challenged the state and in doing so became a celebrated resistance figure. It also made him public enemy #1. All of this happened simply because he was doing his thing, not because of any agenda he had or strategy. And then he gets scourged (storm of thorns) There are some plot holes here but I think it's an interesting interpretation.

Classic love story true to his western tx roots. One of my favorites as a story, but I think there are alot of songs that are amazing not even listed on this site. I guess I should figure out how to add them, because I have about 8 REK cd's.

Warren wanted a Beach Boys thing for this one, and Carl Wilson and Billy Hinsche came in, with Carl arranging the vocal parts. The other harmony vocalists (credited as the "Gentlemen Boys") were Jackson Browne, J.D. Souther, Zevon's longtime backers Waddy Wachtel and Jorge Calderon, and Linda Rondstadt/Stone Poneys guitarist Kenny Edwards.

He reuses the verse melody from the previous album's "Dirty Little Religion", the topics of the verses are all over the place, and he packs too many words into one line (goes to show...) and too few in another (it's pretty hard to find), and rhymes "Henley Regatta" with "Persona non grata", but gets away with it all as only he could.

This song is def a twin to "Unfair" (a song she has been quoted as saying is about falling in love with someone who is already in a relationship) so it is presumably about the same person. Given the references to buying an apartment and not being able to see her love interest "after tonight," it's most likely that she's moving away and she'll "wait a day to break the bad news" (i.e. notifying him that she's leaving once she's already gone). And, of course, the fact that she sees in him a fellow "idealist" and "dreamer" (terms commonly given to people with the INFP personality on the Myers–Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI)) portends that she'll always be left wondering if they would've been perfect together.
