I've been trying
Lord knows that I've been trying
To understand why
Can I be your only man?

Now you said you love me
So sincerely
That I believed that you love me
An' yet I can't understand why
Can I be your only man?

Day after day
You treat me any old way
I wanna go but my heart says, "No"
Acting so strange
But my love still remains
So keep on trying boy
She's gonna change

Day after day
You treat me any old way
I wanna go but my heart says, "No"
Acting so strange
Yet my love still remains
It says keep on trying boy
She's gonna change

Now, I've been trying
Lord knows how I've been trying
But I can't understand why
Can I be your only man?

I just keep on trying
Just keep on trying
You gotta keep on trying
Gotta keep on trying

Keep on trying
Keep on trying
Just keep on trying

MAYFIELD, CURTIS
