Blues inflected contemplation about vanity, pride and love.

lyrics

Vanity and Pride



you know the reason why we
aren't together tonight
something is keeping us apart
could it be vanity and pride

or is it something else
have we had our time
is our future in the past
has the sun stopped to shine

you and I only do have one chance
if we manage to end this romance

with
vanity and pride it gets in the way again
vanity and pride I hope we won't stay friends

I'm lying in my bed
staring up into the air
you are thinking of me
far away somewhere

but still close somehow
you know I go by feel
and I can feel your heart
it believes in you and me

you and I only do have one chance
if we manage to end this romance

with
vanity and pride it gets in the way again
vanity and pride I hope we won't stay friends

mmhm

the two keep drifting around in our veins
as long as something stays hard wired in our brains

will
vanity and pride get in the way again
vanity and pride I hope we won't stay friends
vanity and pride gets in the way again
