I see your face cloud over like a little girl's
And your eyes have lost their shine
You whisper something softly I'm not meant to hear
Baby, tell me what's on your mind

I don't care what people say
About the two of us from different worlds
I love you so much that it hurts inside
Are you listening?

Please listen to me, girl

Can't we try just a little bit harder?
Can't we give just a little bit more?
Can't we try to understand
That it's love we're fighting for?
Can't we try just a little more passion?
Can't we try just a little less pride?
Love you so much baby
That it tears me up inside

I hear you on the telephone with God knows who
Spilling out your heart for free
Everyone needs someone they can talk to
Girl, that someone should be me

So many times, I tried to tell you
You just turned away

How did I know?

My life is changing so fast now
Leaves me lonely and afraid

Don't be afraid, no

Can't we try just a little bit harder?
Can't we give just a little bit more?
Can't we try to understand
That it's love we're fighting for?
Can't we try just a little more passion?
Can't we try just a little less pride?
Love you so much baby
That it tears me up inside

Don't let our love fade away
Don't let our love fade away
No matter what people say
No matter, no matter what they say
I need you more and more each day
Don't let our love fade away
No matter what people say
No matter, no matter what they say

Can't we try just a little bit harder?
Can't we give just a little bit more?
Can't we try just a little bit harder?
Can't we give just a little bit more?
Can't we try just a little more passion?
Can't we try just a little less pride?
Love you so much baby
That it tears me up inside

Can't we give a little bit, little bit?
Just a little bit harder
Can we give wow wow wow wow

Can't we try 
Can't we give a little bit more
Can't we try, baby
Can't we give wow 

We could try just a little bit harder 
Can we give a little bit more
(Can't we try just a little bit)
