This song was written around Christmas time. Having just come out of a long relationship, I found myself sitting alone in my living room staring at all the decorations around the room. As I focused in on the stockings on the fireplace, I wondered what life would have been like if her name would have been on a new stocking. I wondered how different things would be if a conversation had gone a different way or a few words had not been said. It then dawned on me that the best had happened. And in order to survive a breakup, you have to continue to try to make it through to another day. I hope that if someone is going through that kind of tough time, "I Try" will help them make it to tomorrow.
