Someone I Ain't

 It wasn't what you said
 It's knowin' what you mean
 You wanna spread your wings and fly where the moment takes you off
 Tryin' hard to be, someone you ain't
 It wasn't how you laughed
 that taught me how to cry
 Convincin' me your heart is a million dreams away
 Tryin' hard to be, someone you ain't
 You came along when I was down
 and found a place within me
 All the love I ever had can not
 replace the things you did I'm still in love with you and even though you're gone
 I gotta try , gotta try,gotta try, gotta try
 Someday I'm gonna win and get back to your arms
 And here am I alone with a memory of you
 Tryin' hard to be, someone I ain't
 We held it in, we gave it out
 There wasn't any quarter
 All the pieces fell apart
 It still ain't like it ought to be I'm still in love with you
 even though you're gone
 I gotta try, gotta try,gotta try, gotta try
 You came along when I was down and found a place within me
 All the love I ever had can not replace the things you did
 I'm still in love with you even though you're gone I gotta try, gotta try
 gotta try, gotta try
 We held it in, we gave it out
 There wasn't any quarter
 All the pieces fell apart
 It still ain't like it ought to be
 I'm still in love with you even though you're gone I gotta try, gotta try,
 gotta try, gotta try
