Geoff Berner - All The Years Of Trying lyrics

All the years of trying
All the interviews
To get your views across
But they always got
Lost.

You always nearly made it
Your records never sold as many
As your record company hoped they
Would.

And you never made
No, you never made
No, you never made
Never made the Top Thirty

But you did sell some records
Sold 'em to the ones who wanted them
Treasured them and kept them with
Their other souvenirs
Never to be sold.

All the years of trying
All the interviews
To get your views across
But they always got
Lost.

You always nearly made it
Your records never sold as many
As you hoped they
Would.

Now you've made that one
That elusive one

You're a failure
But now you are a suck-cess
Now you are a suck-cess
After all the years of trying.
