  • I've been having a hard time adjusting
    I had the shiniest wheels, now they're rusting
    I didn't know if you'd care if I came back
    I have a lot of regrets about that
    Pulled the car off the road to the lookout
    Could've followed my fears all the way down
    And maybe I don't quite know what to say
    But I'm here in your doorway

    I just wanted you to know
    That this is me trying
    I just wanted you to know
    That this is me trying

    They told me all of my cages were mental
    So I got wasted like all my potential
    And my words shoot to kill when I'm mad
    I have a lot of regrets about that
    I was so ahead of the curve, the curve became a sphere
    Fell behind all my classmates and I ended up here
    Pourin' out my heart to a stranger
    But I didn't pour the whiskey

    I just wanted you to know
    That this is me trying
    I just wanted you to know
    That this is me trying

    At least I'm trying

    And it's hard to be at a party
    When I feel like an open wound
    It's hard to be anywhere these days
    When all I want is you
    You're a flashback in a film reel
    On the one screen in my town

    And I just wanted you to know
    That this is me trying (maybe I don't quite know what to say)
    I just wanted you to know
    That this is me trying

    At least I'm trying Writer/s: Jack Michael Antonoff, Taylor A. Swift
