Hill, Dan - We Try Lyrics

I see your face cloud over like a little girl's
And your eyes have lost their shine
You whisper something softly I'm not meant to hear
Baby tell me what's on your mind

I don't care what people say
About the two of us from different worlds
I love you so much that it hurts inside

Are you listening
Please listen to me girl

Can't we try just a little bit harder
Can't we give just a little bit more
Can't we try to understand
That it's love we're fighting for

Can't we try just a little more passion
Can't we try just a little less pride
I love you so much baby
That it tears me up inside

I hear you on the telephone with god-knows-who
Spilling out your heart for free
Everyone needs someone they can talk to
Girl that someone should be me

So many times I tried to tell you
You just turned away

How did I know

My life is changing so fast now
Leaves me lonely and afraid

Don't be afraid no


Don't let our love fade away [x2]
No matter what people say
No matter no matter what they say
I need you more and more each day
Don't let our love fade away
No matter what people say
No matter no matter what they say

Hill, Dan We Try Comments
  1. Amy Ehlinger

    46yrs old, blessed & honored, to love this song and proud my parents shared their great taste in music..& the radio, I remember living every day listening from a young age!

  2. Joe Miller

    It was then & will always be a very beautiful song, & Dan what a beautiful voice, my friend!!!

  3. Greg P

    Hate to say it, but that was the sappiest shit I have ever heard

  4. Kathleen Smith

    NO ONE is even CLOSE or capable of making songs like this anymore...so sad, but that GOD we have memories & the old songs to cherish!!!

  5. Crashing Comet

    Sadly most of you people don't realize this song is from the 1970s.

  7. Marvin Marmolejo

    I admire silent people who tend to convey their inner feelings through songs and writings. It has a powerful impact that touches abyss of persona. Simply being soulful has more depth in expression appreciated. So nice to listen and read between the lines with the utmost value conveyed. Sensibly persuasive in a different manner. 🎧📝🖊

  8. j john

    song is sad he the song is telling me he is does not know if he loves her or not. But the sex is great .But not alot else going for the relationship.

  9. j john

    Love this song and only his voice. What is he doing today 2020 ?

  10. Irene Ramirez



    God bless you for such a wonderful music

  12. Marvin Marmolejo

    Wherever you are now, you're still in my heart. I'll be missing your writings, your written phrases, your chosen power words, intellect, face, body, impish smiles, good attitude, core drive, humbleness, and entire personality. I would not forget the nights shared together, the smiles, laughter, and trivial quarrels. You kept me till the last encounter. May you be happy where you are right now. You're one of a kind. (Love)

  13. Marvin Marmolejo

    Sometimes When We Touch 💚
    - Dan Hill

    You ask me if I love you
    And I choke on my reply
    I'd rather hurt you honestly
    Than mislead you with a lie
    And who am I to judge you
    In what you say or do
    I'm only just beginning
    To see the real you
    And sometimes when we touch
    The honesty's too much
    And I have to close my eyes
    And hide
    I want to hold you till I die
    Till we both break down and cry
    I want to hold you till the fear in me subsides
    Romance's in all strategy
    Leaves me battling with my pride
    But through the years security
    Some tenderness survives
    I'm just another writer
    Still trapped within my truth
    A hesitant prize-fighter
    Still trapped within my youth
    And sometimes when we touch
    The honesty's too much
    And I have to close my eyes
    And hide
    I want to hold you till I die
    Till we both break down and cry
    I want to hold you till the fear in me subsides
    At times I'd like to break you
    And drive you to your knees
    At times I'd like to break through
    And hold you endlessly
    At times I understand you
    And I know how hard you try
    I've watched while love commands you
    And I've watched love pass you by
    At times I think we're drifters
    Still searching for a friend
    A brother or a sister
    But then the passion flares again
    And sometimes when we touch
    The honesty's too much
    And I have to close my eyes
    And hide
    I want to hold you till I die
    Till we both break down and cry
    I want to hold you till the fear in me subsides

    My husband of 9 years passed away without warning November 19, 2019 it's only been 2 months since he left me to go be with God. He used to sing this song to me. I miss his voice, I miss him holding me, I miss him loving me, I miss everything about him. I wish that he was here with me. We have an 8 year old son together and he misses him everyday. With a heavy heart and tears in my eyes, my husband is no longer suffering I will love and miss him dearly. This song hits close to home and touches my heart so deeply 💔 I don't know if I will ever be able to go on without my husband. He was the love of my life! RIP my love. It's not goodbye it's see you later until we meet again! I love you!❤️😭

    Mark Compasio

    I rather die of fear to live or be loved....as long as he's holding me as I'm dying..🌠🌠💓💓💓

  37. Stewart Cook

    He was 37 and she was 35 years old. My Buddy had a love relationship you'd never seen before. Such love between the two, beyond belief. Just over a year after the beginning of their relationship she developed terminal cancer and was given less than a year to live. What devastation! That being said, their love grew even stronger. On the night she passed away she was in his arms and the background music was playing. As she spoke her last  words, "I'll always love you," this song (SOMETIMES WHEN WE TOUCH)  started playing. And tears just flowed down our eyes. We have never forgotten this song, which of course reminds of her passing. DAN HILL...such good music!

  38. Neisha Macey

    Best song ever I love Dan and his music is magical

    Thank you So Very Much for this song Dan , I was only 5 when you released it , but I have loved it/you my whole life, you were one of my first crushes. I believe music should touch you, make you "feel" it. I love musicians/artist who can convey their emotions when they share their gift. You Sir are one of those. So thank you for all that you have contributed to music/us.
