McReynolds, Jonathan - Try Lyrics




I don't wanna live the crazy life
And I don't wanna pick a crazy wife
And I don't wanna be that crazy guy
Who lost what I had inside, mmh

And I don't want the sinners destiny
And I don't wanna miss what's best for me
So I'm gonna take what's left of me
Swallow pride, at least I...

I gotta make a sincere effort to be
All that you called me to be, Lord
I just don't wanna stay here, living beneath
I owe it to me to at least try

So I'm gonna try
Try, try, try, try
See I'm gonna try
Try, try, try, try
A little harder this time
This time, this time
I'm gonna try
Try, try, try, try

See Lord I wanna know Your plan for me
And I gotta follow faithfully, yeah
So teach me to abandon all that
Makes me comfortable, so basically...

I gotta make a sincere effort to be
All that you called me to be, Lord
I just don't wanna stay here, living beneath
I owe it to me to at least try

So I'm gonna try
Try, try, try, try
See I'm gonna try
Try, try, try, try
A little harder this time
This time, this time
I'm gonna try
Try, try, try, try

Tell me what I need to do
So I can be close to you
I only wanna make you smile
This time's different
Tell the heavens to watch me...

While I try
Try, try, try, try
See I'm gonna try
Try, try, try, try
A little harder this time
This time, this time
I'm gonna try
Try, try, try, try

See I'm gonna try
Try, try, try, try

I'm gonna make a sincere effort to be
All that you want me to be, God
I just don't wanna stay here living beneath
I owe it to me to at least try
I owe it to me to at least try
I owe it to me to at least try
Mmh, 'cause if it's God I'm after
Just can't serve two masters
before something happens
I gotta turn it all around

'Cause I just can't have my cake and eat it too
'cause it's real easy to stay on the fence and still do you
and itd' be cool if we can love the Lord and still go do our thing
but see it doesn't work like this, we gotta be white or black

I'm gonna try
try, tr, try, try
See I gotta try
Try, try, try, try
A little harder this time
This time, this time
I'm gonna try
Try, try, try, try
