All you need to do is try

It takes a lot to hide the truth, even more to cover a lie,
years to win a heart, a moment of madness to make it cry,
to be disillusioned is part of the journey, to give up is the satiric crime,
hush my darling now, this too shall pass us by,
take that first step, all you need to do is try,

One day we'll have it all,
those marquee cars, that penthouse in the sky,
Till then we'll have to make do,
with your generous laughter, and my soup stained tie,
As long as we're side by side, there's nothing we can't survive,
so set your fears aside, all you need to do is try,

Not everything in life works to a plan,
Then does it matter? the when, the what, the why,
Thinking too much is such a waste of time, All that's left when your'e done is cynicism and wry,
Come on this adventure with me, I'll make it worth the while,
It's not that hard to imagine, all you need to do is try,

Words can only say so much, just paper with the ink gone dry,
I'd learn something new, if just to impress you by,
But I'm getting old and time isn't on my side,
Words are all I have besides my reassuring smile,
If that's not enough to seal the deal, hold my hand if just to say goodbye,
It's not that tough to break my heart, all you need to do is try.

We go through life with certain regrets,
things we didn't do, words left unsaid,
the omens we ignored, the hate we bred,
the people we rejected, the ones we met,
some decisions years ago, some ideas that wed,
some broken hearts, some lovers that fled,

Once in a while, truth be said,
life gives us a chance to live again.,
to fix certain wrongs, to face fears we dred,
to heal broken hearts and make amends,
to hold someone's hand and trust them again,

So I ask you this as I bow my head,
I dressed in black and you in crimson red,
request a dance, my words cautiously tread,
reprinting dreams, I nurtured in my head,

would you sway with me or turn me down instead?,
take a second chance or live in eternal regret,
your mind is your worst enemy my dear, and your best friend,
and the beginning of something can also be it's end.
