this is me trying

作曲 : Taylor Swift/Jack Antonoff
I’ve been having a hard time adjusting
I had the shiniest wheels
Now they’re rusting
I didn’t know if you’d care if I came back
I have a lot of regrets about that
Pulled the car off the road to the lookout
Could’ve followed my fears all the way down
And maybe I don’t quite know what to say
But I’m here in your doorway
I just wanted you to know
That this is me trying
I just wanted you to know
That this is me trying
They told me all of my cages were mental
So I got wasted like all my potential
And my words shoot to kill when I’m mad
I have a lot of regrets about that
I was so ahead of the curve
The curve became a sphere
Fell behind all my classmates and I ended up here
Pouring out my heart to a stranger
But I didn’t pour the whiskey
I just wanted you to know
That this is me trying
I just wanted you to know
That this is me trying
At least I’m trying
And it’s hard to be at a party
When I feel like an open wound
It’s hard to be anywhere these days
When all I want is you
You’re a flashback in a film reel
On the one screen in my town...
And I just wanted you to know
That this is me trying
I just wanted you to know
That this is me trying
At least I’m trying
