lyrics

I tried
Just for a change
To write something new
And show a little range

But boy
The going got rough
When digging for lines
I found not a lot of stuff

And I can try
The whole day through
But there's only so much I can do

'Cause when I speak of love
More often than not
It's you I'm thinking of

But look
Make no mistake
Though you're like a drug
There's others I can take

But I'll admit they're not the same
And there's only one thing I can blame

I used to talk big but now I know my place
I'm like an old pack that only has one ace
I tried it other ways but what else could I do?
There'd be no love songs if never there was you

For days
Nothing got done
It felt like a chore
It wasn't any fun

I tried
As hard as I could
But nothing I wrote
Was sounding any good

So I wised up
And got in line
And then I had a much better time

I used to talk big but now I know my place
I'm like an old pack that only has one ace
I tried it other ways but what else could I do?
There'd be no love songs if never there was you

So I'll admit
And I'll repeat
There's a lot to be gained in defeat

I used to talk big but now I know my place
I'm like an old pack that only has one ace
I tried it other ways but what else could I do?
There'd be no love songs if never there was you
