The Energy To Try
< ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------->
Do you remember the days when we were fine
And you were mine, yeah, we laughed all day, all day
Now there's a retail hotel mirror
Elevator contemplating these heart attacks
Or somewhat panic attacks

Yeah, you're home
Yeah, you're home
You're the butterfly guitar that sits on its own
Am I supposed to write this storybook on how it goes
I thought that you should know

Chorus:
I can't bring you down
I can't bring you down
I don't want to bring you down
I never want to bring you down
I love you
But I don't have the energy to try
The energy to try

Do you remember the days when we were fine
And you were mine, yeah, we laughed all day, all day
Now there's a retail hotel mirror
Elevator contemplating these artifacts
Or what I call panic attacks

But still she's home
She's my home
She's my butterfly guitar that sits on its own
Am I supposed to write this storybook on how it goes
I thought that you should know that

Chorus:
I can't bring you down
I can't bring you down
I never want to bring you down
I'd never want to bring you down
I love you
But I don't have the energy to try
The energy to try
The energy to try
Energy to try

Remember the days when we were fine
And you were mine, we laughed all day, all day
"I was in Nashville when I wrote this, and I was missing the hell out of my mom.  We had just gotten signed to Universal and I didn't know anything, what was going on...and they said, you must go to Nashville and stay up there for, how long was it, like three, four months.  And all I wanted was to come home and have dinner with my mom, cause she cooks really good dinner.  And um, so uh, here we go.  It's called The Energy To Try."
