tried to be true lyrics – indigo girls

ohh yeah
from baby to best with no second test
these little storms destroy you
and here is the fame they promised to give you
takin’ the place of my hand now

well, did you try to be true?
what separates me from you now
what separates me from you

did you borrow the soul?
the soul that you sell now
what does your conscience tell you?
where are the demons of your desires?
why does my love destroy you?

i said, i tried to be true
what separates me from you now?
(what separates me from you now?)
i said, i tried, tried to be true
what separates me from you now
(what separates me from you now?)
what separates me from you
(what separates me from you now?)
i think it’s you now

tell me, where is the fame?
where is the fortune?
where is the world that denies you?
who is to blame?
when my heart finally forfeits
to a road that will only misguide you

well, did we try to be true?
what separates me from you now?
(what separates me from you now?)
oh, did we try, try to be true?
(what separates me from you now?)
(what separates me from you now?)
it separates me from you now
(what separates me from you now?)
it separates me from you
(what separates me from you now?)
it’s you

where are they, baby?
where are they, baby?
where are they, baby?
baby, baby
yeah

(i tried, tried to be true)
yeah, i bought my love a hunger
more precious than a stone
(i tried, tried to be true)
where is the world that denies you?
all these fatal flowers
(i tried, tried to be true)
where is the world that denies you?
did i misguide you?
(tried to be true)
