Cara Hammond – “Try to Love You”
“Never been the type to run around for some guy. But there was something about you that made me change my mind. And I was young and stupid and now I’ve wasted my time. But there was something about you. There was something about you. I fell foolishly. You aren’t good for me.” – lyrics
‘Try to Love You’ tells the tale of a naive woman who’s in a brand-new relationship with a no-good guy. “His type”, she doesn’t necessarily date, but on this rare occasion, she decides to give him a chance because there’s something about him that she adores.
A few months go by, and everything is fine and dandy. Then one day, he reveals his dangerous side. A red flag pops up and she realizes she has made a giant mistake and feels young and stupid for falling for him because she knew better.
“I came up with the chorus melody for ‘Try to Love You’ in the kitchen. I was scatting it really loud while making a cup of tea and decided to record it on my phone. Then, I took my melody while traveling around South East Asia with my boyfriend, and unfortunately lost my phone in Singapore. I was so upset because I had lost all my voice memos too, which included tones of ideas, lyrics, and melodies to songs I had recorded while traveling. However, my boyfriend went through all the melodies and lyrics he remembered and we re-recorded them into his phone. ‘Try to Love You’ was one of them because he said it was too catchy to forget.” – Cara Hammond
“This bittersweet track is about those relationships we know aren’t working but try our best to keep them together anyway. I wrote the lyrics following a conversation with a close friend of mine, who knew it wasn’t good for them but kept on trying to love them.” – Cara Hammond
