can’t try harder (m gibson) lyrics – godfathers

sometimes i feel like i’m prospecting for gold
i’m always searching for the mother lode
each day i’m hoping for a little bit more
hard to remember what i came here for
i’d give you diamonds and i’d give you pearls
if we were living in a different world
but you’re just handing out some more of the same
a little anger and a little more pain
there must be something hidden so deep inside of you
i can’t try harder than i do
to make the world seem right for you
i can’t try harder than i do
caught in a place where there’s no night and no day
i’m working hard to move the rocks in my way
lost in the darkness and so far from home
still i can’t penetrate this heart of stone
there must be something hidden so deep inside of you
i can’t try harder than i do
to make the world seem right for you
i can’t try harder than i do
to make the world seem right for you
sometimes a vision comes to me at night
i see your treasure and it’s shining so bright
some things are precious beyond all belief
these things i’ve had but i could never keep
there must be something hidden so deep inside of you
i can’t try harder than i do
to make the world seem right for you
i can’t try harder than i do
to make the world seem right for you
i can’t try harder than i do
to make the world seem right for you
i can’t try harder than i do
to make the world seem right for you
i can’t try harder than i do
i can’t try harder than i do
i can’t try harder than i do
