Hippo Campus - Why Even Try Lyrics




When I forgot you, you came to mind
Every trouble, back in your eyes and
It's so cyclical, so why even try?
Why even try to change?

Know yourself way more than I can
Being friends was in the palm of my hand
But I learned fall and break, so why even try?
Why even try to mend?

On and on
The feeling's bursting in my thoughts
'Till later on
We walk it back and patch things up
On and on
The feeling's bursting in my thoughts
'Till later on
We walk it back and patch things up

Soon it will all disappear
Maybe I will miss your voice in my ear
But I can't go back now, so why even try?
Why even try to hear?

You know I'm alright
You know I'm right here
You know I'm alright
You know I'm right here

On and on (you know I'm alright)
The feeling's bursting in my thoughts (you know I'm right here)
'Till later on (you know I'm alright)
We walk it back and patch things up (you know I'm right here)
On and on (you know I'm alright)
The feeling's bursting in my thoughts (you know I'm right here)
'Till later on (you know I'm alright)
We walk it back and patch things up

When I forgot you, you came to mind
Every trouble, back in your eyes and
I can't go back now, so why even try?
You can't go back now, so why even try?
No, we can't go back now, so why even try?
Why even try to change?

    I found this band through a friend and fell in love with the sound. But now we're going through a rough patch and listening to these songs feel like a punch in the gut.

    Klöff

    It's the same for me. I asked a friend to listen to them and that person loved them and there music but now we are not friends anymore and we did not have a good ending at all so i feel you. I hope you and your friend get well through it.

  51. Ice Bear

    The last verse, along with the visual aesthetic, made me cry. Like an old, old cry from years ago that I've been carrying around with me all this time. Not sure what string was pulled inside of me, especially considering this is my first time hearing this song.


    Like, today. Right as I'm typing this.

    Yvander Phillipe

    Ice Bear Maybe you’ve been very cold and these song triggered what you’ve been doing all this time.
