Tried So Hard

Lyrics: Gene Clark
Music: Gene Clark

Sung by Greg Loicono with Phil Lesh and the Terrapin Family Band in 2014. I think this is the right song, though not yet checked against a recording.

Stopped awhile this morning on my way back home
I had to realize this time that I'd be all alone
'Cause she is moving somewhere far away not slow
And though I tried so hard to please her
She said she really had to go

Even though this time it really hurts me bad
I've been through similarities it's not the first break I've had
And I just can't let it bring me down too low
And though I tried so hard to please her
There must be something more to know

Never thought that we would end this way
It seemed that everything was going fine
Still with all the things that I can do or say
It won't change the fate I know so well is mine

So I'll stop and look right past the pain
'Cause I've been in love before and I can love again
While she is moving somewhere far away not slow
And though I tried so hard to please her
She said she really had to go
