My first complete song

I Gotta Try

Music & Lyrics by Sharon Tucker

I’m staring out the windshield counting down the seconds till I see my first sunset

I’m playing with the radio, trying to find a song I know but I ain’t found one yet

Oh it’s a long road when you’re out here all alone

It’s been two hundred miles since I left home

I loaded up my dreams and every single thing I own is in this car

Driving out the memory of the words they said to me, you’ll never get that far

Oh it’s lonely when you’re not sure where you’re going

But I’ll stand tall and fight always knowing

(chorus)

I Gotta Try

Spread my wings and test the sky

I Gotta Try

Make it to the other side

There’ll be tough times but I know I’ll get by

I Gotta Try

Settled in my new town, started making calls around, looking for my big break

No matter where it is I go, all I ever hear is no, but I got memories to make

Oh it’s a long climb up that hill when you’re brand new

But in my heart there’s a dream that I’m tied to

(chorus)

(bridge)

Dreams are what make us real

Chasing them make us feel

(chorus-modified)

I Gotta Try

Spread my wings and test the sky

I Gotta Try

Make it to the other side

There’ll be tough times but I know I’ll get by

There’ll be tough times but I know I’ll get by

I Gotta Try

I Gotta Try
