  • Every window in my hometown is empty
    And I really don't know why
    And the house you used to live in is cold and fallen down, yeah
    And I am tired and I'm weary
    And lord those grey skies bring me down
    And I came home for just one reason
    To find myself in this quiet town, yeah

    And I keep thinking, oh I'm thinking time's been my teacher
    I don't want to leave you
    So please give me one more try
    I'm tired and I'm weary but I want you near me

    So please give me one more try
    Oh, just give me one more try
    One more try
    I don't know where to go for one more try

    All the days we spent together doing nothing
    It all so seems so long ago
    I thought the world turned around without me baby
    But I just didn't know
    That I was wrong to go and leave you
    To go and leave your world behind
    But now time has been my teacher
    And now I finally found

    I'm thinking time's been my teacher
    I don't want to leave you
    So please give me one more try
    I'm tired and I'm weary but I want you near me
    So please give me one more try

    Just give me one more try
    One more try
    Oh, I don't know what to do
    For one more try

    Now I'm sitting in my hotel
    Watching old films
    Doing nothing once again
    The difference now is you're not with me
    And I'm lonelier than I've ever been

    And I've been thinkin'
    Time's been my teacher
    I don't want to leave you
    Please give me one more try
    I'm tired and I'm weary but I want you near me
    Please give me one more try

    Just give me one more try
    One more try
    'Cause I don't know where to go
    For one more try
