TRY AS I MAY= However I try…, it doesn’t matter how hard I try…

NOTHING AT ALL= Absolutely nothing.
We use “at all” to emphasize negative and interrogative sentences:

– Have you got any Italian friends at all? (I’m emphasizing the whole question, as if having Italian friends is something not very probable)
ALL DAY LONG= All through the day, all the time during the day, the 24 hours.
DROWN= /draʊn/ To drown is to die because you are under water and you can’t breathe. It may also be transitive:
– The ship crashed and everybody drowned (intransitive)
– Stop holding me, you’re going to drown me! (transitive)
In the song, “drown” has a figurative sense. YOU DROWN OUT THE CROWD means that your presence makes the noise from the crowd disappear, their image, their sound, goes out of my mind in the ocean of peace and love I feel when I’m with you.
