Anne Murray — Hard As I Try lyrics

Ever since that first night
When I gave my love to you
Everything just seems so right

You are my sunlight shining through
And I've tried so not to let it show
Yet it seems sad because I know

No matter how hard I try
No matter how hard I try
It's always a goodbye

You smile softly as you leave my bed
And I tightly hold your hand
You lean down to kiss my head

But there's nothing to be said
And if you say you want to stay
I'd know you'd soon be on your way

No matter how hard we try
No matter how hard we try
It's always a goodbye

No matter how hard we try
No matter how hard we try
It's always a goodbye

So here we stand, you and I
You are too kind, I'm too shy
To say what we really mean

So we make life a masquerade
Never showing all
Only the parts we play

No matter how hard we try
No matter how hard we try
It's always a goodbye
