failing lyrics – staind

“failing”

yeah, like the threat of the darkest clouds rollin’ in on a sunny day…
yeah, like a field that has no rain…
yeah, like a dog that wanders aimless, with no mane…
yeah, like a cut without the pain…

you couldn’t feel this?
you couldn’t take the pain?
you couldn’t live this?

and i’m just trying to get through to you,
and i am failing
lie like i’m not even here,
my heart is breaking
trying to see through your stare,
it looks right through me
i smile and pretend i’m not there,
to keep from going crazy

yeah, like the day that your guardian angel decided to fly away…
yeah, like a bruise that doesn’t fade…
yeah, like a memory that tortures your soul until your dying day…
yeah, like the life you couldn’t save…

you couldn’t feel this?
you couldn’t take the pain?
you couldn’t live this?

and i’m just trying to get through to you,
and i am failing
lie like i’m not even here,
my heart is breaking
trying to see through your stare,
it looks right through me
i smile and pretend i’m not there,
to keep from going crazy

i’ve tried to… get through to you
i’ve tried to… i’m trying
i’ve tried to… get through to you
i’ve tried to…

and i’m still trying to get through to you,
and i am failing
lie like i’m not even here,
my heart is breaking
trying to see through your stare,
it looks right through me
i smile and pretend i’m not there,
to keep from going crazy

i’ve tried to… get through to you
i’ve tried to…
i’ve tried to… get through to you

i’ve tried to… get through.

i’ve tried to… get through to you
i’ve tried to…
