Maybe

They say you can lead a horse to water but you can’t make them drink

Maybe she’s a stone bound to sink

Maybe to stop trying, will save me from crying

Maybe

 

They say that a leopard can’t change its spots

She’s family though, she’s all I got

Maybe to stop trying, will save me from crying

Maybe

 

They say a good beginning makes a good ending

Well she had a bad start, you can guess where she’s heading

Maybe to stop trying, will save me from crying

Maybe

 

They say that blood is thicker than water

But she’s mud, blood less dense than her

Maybe to stop trying, will save me from crying

Maybe

 

They say if at first you fail, try try again

But at some point this has to end

Maybe to stop trying, will save me from crying

Maybe to stop trying, will save me from crying

I’m stopping trying, I’m done with crying
