My Pride Waged A Battle

My pride waged a battle
With my lovesickness and lost

My pride waged a battle
With my lovesickness and lost

I’ve been around the block a few times now
Thought I’d seen it all
This time I don’t know what I did
but it sure was a brawl

Maybe she didn’t like me
As much as I liked her
Maybe she did and I fucked it up
Or maybe it’s all a blur

My pride waged a battle
With my lovesickness and lost

Let it go, leave it be, just walk away
That’s what I boldly said
But crawling on all fours and begging for answers
is what I did instead

My pride waged a battle
With my lovesickness and lost

My pride waged a battle
With my lovesickness and lost

But it was a Pyrrhic victory
And hearts mend like minds bend

My pride waged a battle
With my lovesickness and lost

Lost
