Lyrics
My lover looks me in the eye
Says baby you failed me
If your love is really true
Why don't I feel set free

Aw bail me out baby
I'm not meant for this prision cell
So I fought for him
How could I know he brought it on himself

And now I'd like to say
Final score aside
That even though I failed in your eyes
I tried

I tried
So I bailed him out with all my cash
I bailed him out with my love
Distracted all the prision guards

With stone trumpet from up above
I even pulled the warden over to one side
I said leave for him to foreswear my penance
For his crime

And now I'd like to say
Final score aside
Even though I failed in your eyes
I tried

I tried it
And with all the pain in this world
That my love could go to change
How could I fail at freeing only one man from his own cage

And though it hurts to think of him
Cursing me for one thing
And it hurts to think of me
No longer believing

But in the end they told me
Sorry he isn't good enough
And it finally occurred to me
Why his life is so damn rough

And now I'd like to say
Final score aside
That even though I failed in your eyes
I know I hurt you maybe a lot

Oh blame me til the day that I die
But I tried
I tried
Baby I tried

Yeah
I tried I tried I tried
