One More Try

So much deeper than the oceans is the heart of man
So much higher than the mountains
Are the things that I don’t understand
Like why I’m crying over someone who will never give a damn

We have boarded up the basement for the storm has found its prey
I have bottled my emotions and saved them for a rainy day
Now I’ll drink the bitter poison of a love that’s been delayed

Since You’ve been gone, I can’t fight it I can’t fight it
I’ve tried for too long I can’t hide it I can’t hide it anymore

This has called for desperate measures
We have left our pride behind
We are aging with the hours of this superficial life
And I refuse to be a failure, I have to give it one more try

But I doubt that you are listening and I doubt that you are moved
I have doubted every step along this long and darkened journey
But I have never doubted you
Now the longing has awoken and I don’t know what to do
