our partners dont realise that all the unnecessary quarrels, etc. can make one so dispondent that you want to give up. with some it becomes a habit and one can just take so much.

I'm trying, believe me I am

trying for a better life

doing what I should do

as your partner and your wife

trying to avoid unnecessary quarrels

to keep the peace all I can

why all the pointless squabbles

and you say you are a man

I'm trying to do what is right

and build what we have started

 you look for reasons to fight

for reasons to complain

you say you have our future in sight

but everything seem in vain

you want me to conform

to who you want me to be

accept me for who I am

I'm my own person, don't you see?

We're in this together

but you're driving us apart

I am trying, because I want to

That's my aim from the start

please grant me the liberty

To think, to say, to do

or be who I was created to be

I' m trying, believe me, it's true

Don't cause me to stray

The going is getting tough

When temptation come my way

I might not be strong enough

I want what is best

For the life we have together

Put all your qualms at rest

You'll drive me away, forever

I'm trying, believe me I am
