lyrics

It’s a difficult life
And the harder I try
To ignore my stubborn mind
It’s of so little help
From every corner it seems
Little voices that scream

There’s a breath of a chance
And there’s hope of romance
If I just keep on trying
But it’s all in my mind
The Biggest Hurdle to Climb
Is simply to resign

And give up on it now
It’s not there
Just forget what you’ve done
It might hurt
But it could be worse

I’m like a ball on a string
I throw myself out again
Only to be hurled back in
To the palm of a ghost
That I invented myself
And imposed upon her words

Head down as my eyes
Bounce from centre to sides
Searching for the line
A single magic divide
Between the months that I’ve tried
And where I should finally cease

And give up on it now
It’s not there
Just forget what you’ve done
It might hurt
But it could be worse

When you’ve tried so hard
When you’ve built so much
When you’ve tried so hard
Just give up
I built it up with my hands
The most ambitious of plans
But it fails and falls again
