Song Description

In this song the singer is accepting of (and relishing in) the fact that they are hopelessly in love with someone.


why would i try
why when i know it is impossible to do
why would i try
why would i try to ever live life without you

I wouldn't try to braid the lightening
I wouldn't try to scold the sea
I wouldn't try to move a mountain
And I wouldn't try to sting a bee


I wouldn't try to wrestle a fire
I wouldn't try to kiss the wind
I wouldn't try to steal a moment
I wouldn't know where to begin


I do believe in the power of persistence
I know what can be done with strong will and strong hands
But I also believe in common sense
and this is one time I know that I simply don't have a chance

I wouldn't bet against the Devil
I wouldn't try to lift Tennessee
I wouldn't try to drink the desert
And I'd never try to leave
