Lyrics – Pride

Pride

words and music © 1993, Kate MacColl

Maybe it’s the way the air feels, saying change is on its way
Maybe it’s because my bed’s so cold, or the
Taste of the red wine I was drinking yesterday
Maybe it’s because I’m feeling old
‘Cause I’ve been kinda restless every time you cross my mind, and I
Just can’t seem to put the past away, I
Just can’t seem to leave it all behind

BUT MY PRIDE WON’T LET ME SAY ALL THE WORDS THAT ARE
BURNING ON THE TIP OF MY TONGUE
PRIDE WON’T LET ME TELL YOU ABOUT ALL THE
LOVE BURNING IN MY HEART THAT’S BEEN STUNG
AND THE FIRE’S TOO BIG FOR ALL MY TEARS TO PUT IT OUT

I wish that we’d been fighting, saying too many hurtful things
‘Cause then I wouldn’t want you back     or that you’d
Run around and broke my heart and lied without regret then I’d tell
Everybody about the traits that you lack
But I just remember being happy ‘cause I was with a man who I adored, ‘til the
Morning that you walked – I still don’t know why – and
That’s the thing that cuts me like a knife

CHORUS
