After you've given it your best, sometimes it is best to throw in the towel and acknowledge things for what they are. From Joey's 2017 release, Terlingua Taproot

Lyrics

You and me we got ourselves some kind of history
It ain’t hard to see
Can’t be blamed for not giving it an honest try
Somehow the fire died

Kick and spit and swear again
Rave and rant to your best friend
Ain’t no real point trying to pretend
When we both know this is the end
Stick a needle in your eye
Cross your heart and hope to die
Sometimes it don’t matter how you try
Some things just ain’t meant to fly
Some things just ain’t meant to fly

Now I gotta confess
This thing's a bittersweet kinda pill for me
It won’t let me be
And it’s hard sometimes
To know that you’ve gone across that borderline
Does healing come in time

Circle twist and spin around
We threw it up but it come back down
Bitterness can make you frown
Sometimes you feel like you gonna drown
Stick a needle in your eye
Cross your heart and hope to die
Sometimes it don’t matter how you try
Some things just ain’t meant to fly
Some things just ain’t meant to fly

Swim against the Ocean Blue
Sometimes you do what you gotta do
Hurts like hell, but it’s alright
Hard to see when you got no light

Pick it Up and Start again
Up and down but I'm on the mend
Tryin' real hard not to pretend
Could use a talk with an honest friend
Stick a needle in your eye
Pinky swear and hope to die
Sometimes it don’t matter how you try
Some things just ain't meant to fly
Some things just ain’t meant to fly
