Lyrics

I tried and I failed, I tried and I failed
It was the best thing that could have happened
There's nothing left here, nothing to care for
No one to talk with, no one to listen

I tried and I failed, I tried and I failed
It was the best thing that could have happened
Too bad you find it all so impressive
Too bad you see it as something precious

I tried and I failed, I tried and I failed
It was the best thing that could have happened
There's nothing left here, nothing to care for
No one to talk with, no one to listen
