The Lyrics


I thought I knew you so well,
But in truth, I could tell
That I hadn’t a clue, I knew nothing of you,
I was shocked to learn the truth.
Before you go, you ought to know

That I’ve been trying, but I’ve failed,
Trying but I’ve failed, after all this time,
And I’m left and it’s a crime
But I am trying.

Trying, trying, trying,
I really can’t believe
That I could be deceived,
Although I’m trying.

When I heard that you were free,
I just thought she’s for me.
Then someone mentioned trans, and that you’re a man,
It’s something I didn’t see,
Now you’re gone for sure, I’ll be evermore

Trying oh so hard,
Trying oh so hard,
To understand,
Accept that you’re a man,
And I’m trying, trying, trying, trying,
Trying, trying, what to do?
