I'm Trying Lyrics


by . From Ordinary Days.


CLAIRE
Uhm, what is this?

JASON
Oh, come on. A childhood memento.
Letís put it there on the shelf.

CLAIRE
How Ďbout the back of the pantry?

JASON
My brother made it himself.

CLAIRE
Good thing your brother doesnít live here.

JASON
Hey, do you think we could clean out some of the stuff in your closet?

CLAIRE
What stuff? Didnít we make room for all your things? Look, your drafting table fits perfectly over there.

JASON
Honey, what is all this old junk? Do you really need it?

CLAIRE
Just things I want to hold on to.

JASON
Oh, come on. Old birthday cards, ticket stubs, Iíve never even seen you wear this sweater.

CLAIRE
I want to keep it, okay?

JASON
Hey, letís take the day, just unpack.
Weíll both be given more space.
Once everything is in its place.

CLAIRE
Oh my God, Jason.

JASON
What is it?

CLAIRE
You kept this?

JASON
Of course I did.

CLAIRE
Top ten things to do in New York before you leave it.

JASON
The cover story in this magazine.
I threw it in the trash.

CLAIRE
And I said, ďGo retrieve it.
Nine of those things are things youíve never seen.Ē
Number Ten, eat a bagel.

JASON
Thatís the one Iíve done.

CLAIRE
Number Nine, root for the Mets

JASON
Does this go on?

CLAIRE
All the way to Number One.

JASON
Number Eight insists we go to Brooklyn

CLAIRE
To see where they make beer

JASON
Number Seven calls for
CLAIRE
Trapeze lessons

JASON
She grabs my hand, and suddenly weíre at the pier.

CLAIRE
Theyíve got a tent set up right by the river.
This whole circus thing, who knew?
You go in a classroom for an hour and they show you what to do.

JASON
Then, one at a time, they make you climb so high into the air.
And as I go up, itís hard not to throw up
But Iím trying.

CLAIRE
Every week we pick a number
And work our way on down the list

JASON
Broadway shows

CLAIRE
Botanic gardens
A tour of City Hall

JASON
There wasnít one we missed.

CLAIRE
Number Three describes some cooking classes
At the Institute Francais.

JASON
Iím allergic to the French, you know.

CLAIRE
He makes a face.
I sign us both up anyway.

JASON
Sheís got a knack for flipping over omelets.
She becomes the teacherís pet.

CLAIRE
Meanwhile, heís got yoke stuck in his egg whites,
And heís getting quite upset.

JASON
I am not upset.
Iím simply letting breakfast stir my soul.

CLAIRE
So he canít cook.

JASON
But honey, look. Iím trying.

CLAIRE
In my head I draw a map that shows the whole entire city.
I put a mental pushpin at the places where we laugh
Like Number Four, that fancy store

JASON
The salesman who ignored us.

CLAIRE
Or Number Two

JASON
The Zoo

CLAIRE
And that giraffe.

JASON
It was fun you know, to see the city
I would do it all again.
But that was what, a year ago?
And all those places, well.
We havenít been since then.

CLAIRE
I remember when we finally got finished.
The Number One thing to do
I hadnít been to Central Park in ages
So Iím soaking up the view
Weíre just standing still
The cityís silhouette against the sky
And I think, ďWhy canít this moment last
Instead of slipping into the past.Ē
I want to keep that moment with me all of the time
And heaven knows that Iím Ė

JASON
Hey, let me be your tour guide this time. I know exactly where to find Number Eleven.

CLAIRE
Iím trying.
