That's Me Trying (Shatner William)

I got your address from the phone book at the library Wandered in, looked you up and you were there Weird that you've been living, maybe 2 miles away for the best part of 20 years You must be, what In your early forties now, if I remember You were born in June or was it May? Eisenhower was the President although it may have been JFK Years of silence, not enough Who could blame us giving up? Above the quiet there's a buzz That's me trying You still working in that store on Ventura? You still going with, no, that's not fair I know I haven't been the very best of dads I'll hold my hand up there The reason that I'm writing is I'd like for us to meet Get a little daughter dad action going soon We could put things behind us, eat some pizza, drink some beer You still see your sister, Lemli? Bring her, too Years of silence, not enough Who could blame us giving up? Above the quiet there's a buzz That's me trying But I don't wanna talk about any of that bad stuff Why I missed out on your wedding and your high school graduation I'd like to explain, but I can't So let's keep things neutral, stick to topics that won't bug us How 'bout this? Let's choose a book and we'll read it before we meet Then we can sit down at a restaurant Have a look at the menu and talk about it while we eat See, if we never had a problem then that's what life would be like Easy, uncomplicated, cool So let's just pretend that the past didn't happen I don't really like thrillers as well I don't want to know if I've got grandchildren No need to tell me where I went wrong I don't want to know what happened in your thirties You wanna try 'Cold Mountain' or is that too long? Years of silence, not enough Who could blame us giving up? Above the quiet there's a buzz That's me trying, it's me trying That's me trying, I'm trying Above the quiet there's a buzz I'm trying
