Singalong! I Try by Macy Gray

Remember when Macy Gray came on the scene and everyone was like, "Who is this woman? What is this voice? I am TAKEN! Just TAKEN!!!" And then promptly forgot about her, which I don't really get because this song is pretty great and her voice is pretty original and intriguing and fun to listen to. Also, back in the day I really wanted the coat she wears in the video, and I still do now. A full-length, robin's egg blue, tailored coat with a HOOD? Come on!


I TRY
by Macy Gray

Games, changes and fears
When will they go from here?
When will they stop?
I believe that fate has brought us here
And we should be together, babe
But we're not

I play it off, but I'm dreaming of you
I'll keep my cool but I'm fiending

I try to say goodbye and I choke
I try to walk away and I stumble
Though I try to hide it, it's clear
My world crumbles when you are not near
Goodbye and I choke
I try to walk away and I stumble
Though I try to hide it, it's clear
My world crumbles when you are not near

I may appear to be free
But I'm just a prisoner of your love
I may seem alright and smile when you leave
But my smiles are just a front

I play it off, but I'm dreaming of you
I'll keep my cool but I'm fiending

I try to say goodbye and I choke
I try to walk away and I stumble
Though I try to hide it it's clear
My world crumbles when you are not near

Here is my confession
May I be your possession?
Boy I need your touch
Your love, kisses, and such
With all my might, I try
But this I can't deny
Deny

I play it off but I'm dreaming of you
I'll keep my cool but I'm fiending

I try to say good bye and I choke
I try to walk away and I stumble
Though I try to hide it it's clear
My world crumbles when you are not near
