16 Tried to Be Me

This balloon is flying high and wide (high in the sky)
As you wave to people they’re all passing by
And a big smile comes to heart warm and gentle now
This is the great escape, nothing´s certain anyhow
To unlearn what was so sure
To taste some things so warm and pure
It simmers and awakes
The vibrant thought that breaks

I´ve made my share of mistakes, my head is up high
I´m breathing, walking, I learned to taste it all
Some things are forgotten
Some things tend to be true
I tried to be me, I tried to be me
I´ve made my share of mistakes, my head is up high
I´m breathing, walking, I learned to taste it all
Some things are forgotten
Some things tend to be true
I tried to be me, oooooh

Sometimes in hasty rush I said, too harsh words not understand
I didn´t ask, I didn´t listen
And sometimes I didn´t see that special need you need from me
Because I was so self-absorbed, I was lost in thought
At the end of yesterday, I was almost ready to say
This is who I am or this is what I am
I´ve made my share of mistakes, my head is up high
I´m breathing, walking, I learned to taste it all
Some things are forgotten
Some things tend to be true

I tried to be me, I tried to be me
I´ve made my share of mistakes, my head is up high
I´m breathing, walking, I learned to taste it all
Some things are forgotten
Some things tend to be true
I tried to be me, I tried to be me
I´ve made my share of mistakes, my head is up high
I´m breathing, walking, I learned
Some things are forgotten
Some things are true
I tried to be me
