I'm Trying to Overcome - Aretha Franklin

I tried to make you happy
And you were feeling sad
Tried to help you forget
All the hearts ships you bad
See you with another woman (Woman)
Always gets the best of me (Woman, woman)
You've got to show me this is the way that life is supposed to be, yeah
Sometimes is hard (Yes, it is)
For a woman to love a man (Woman)
I'm trying to overcome, yes, I am (Yes I am)
Trying to understand
I don't wanna be second best
I wanna be number one
For standing on these wide lands
People, Lord, let me tell you it ain't much fun
Sometimes a woman (Woman)
Has got pains that she can't tell (Woman, woman)
I've gotta find a way to break the spell
Sometimes is hard (Yes, it is)
For a woman to love a man (Woman)
I'm trying to overcome, yes I am (Yes, I am)
Trying everyday to understand
You may lie so better
But, oh, sometimes you make it so doggone sweet
Sometimes my mind is too hard (Yes, it is)
So hard (so hard, Yes, it is)
It's too hard (so hard, Yes, it is)
So hard to be (so hard)
Sometimes is hard (Yes, it is)
For a woman to love a man (Woman)
I'm trying to overcome (Yes I am)
Trying to do the best I can
Sometimes it's too hard (Yes, it is, so hard)
So hard (Yes, it is, so hard)
It's too hard (Yes, it is, so hard)
So hard, Yes, it is (so hard)
Sometimes is hard, Yes, it is (Yes, it is)
For a woman to love a man (Love, Yes, it is)
I'm trying to overcome (Love)
(For a woman to love a man) Trying to understand, yeah
(Yes, it is) Yes, it is
(So hard) So hard
(For a woman to love a man) For a woman to love a man, yeah
(Yes, it is) Yes, it is
(So hard) So hard
(For a woman to love a man) For a woman to love a, yeah
(Yes, it is) Yes, it is
(So hard) So hard
