Tried in Vain
CD "Eddy was Right" 1992
Music & Words: W. M. van Duin
Noise of traffic in the city
Jamming in the streets below
Keep the windows closed and stay inside
No better place to go

Are you waiting in the afternoon
Sunlight beaming through the dust
Flowers on the table dried and faded need someone to trust

No one round to talk it over
No one round to share the pain
Roll another joint and think it over
All you tried in vain

Wish you were a gipsy in a caravan
Wheels painted red and green
Restless rolling through the summer night
All those places you've never seen
Are you waiting in the afternoon
Sitting cross-legged on you bed
Think you patched jeans must be very dated
Still you canąt forget
