I'm trying hard to understand
I'm trying hard to do the things it takes to be a man

Life's slipping away from me
It's not the way I thought it'd be

I'm trying hard to understand "and to know just who I am"
I'm trying hard to get a break or just to give a damn

I'm trying hard to get away "but I always seem to stay"
I'm trying hard to understand a fucking word you say

Life's slipping away from me
It's not the way I thought it'd be

Somebody help me
I' in this mess and I'm slipping away

I'm trying hard to understand "but I don't know if I can"
I'm trying hard to make the best of this mess I'm in

Life's slipping away from me
It's not the way I thought it'dbe
Life's slipping away from me
I can't hold on I can't belive it
Life's slipping away from me
It's not the way I thought it'd be

Somebody help me
I'm in this mess and I'm slipping away

I'm trying hard to understand
