about

Also from the "Go Away Sunshine" album.

Well . . . misery sometimes makes pretty good blues music! Unfortunately, this one is straight from the heart on a bad day . . . or maybe a bad decade . . .
sure felt like it!

lyrics

TIRED OF TRYIN’

I’ve been waiting
And hoping for a change
I’ve been holding on
Sure there’d come a better day

And I’m so tired . . .
I’m so tired . . .
I’m so tired . . .

Tired of tryin’ . . . to make ends meet
Tired of tryin’ . . . to make myself believe
Tired of tryin’ . . . to keep my head up high
I can’t find much reason to live . . .
and I’m tired of tryin’

I’m a loser
I’ve gone and lost my way
I’m in trouble
It's my fault and I’m ashamed

And I’m so tired . . .
I’m so tired . . .
I’m so tired . . .

Tired of tryin’ . . . to make ends meet
Tired of tryin’ . . . to make myself believe
Tired of tryin’ . . . to keep my head up high
I can’t find much reason to live . . .
and I’m tired of tryin’
