How Could I Swallow My Pride?

It was Saturday night…

 

And it was love at first sight on the fourth of December

That is the night that I’ll always remember, but did I look at you or did you look at me?

I don’t know

 

But how could I swallow my pride?

I would not be denied

I would stand up and fight for the right to lie by your side

For a while

 

And how could I swallow my pride?

I could tell by the look in your eyes

I told you you loved me, but you didn’t believe me

I was right

 

But how could I swallow my pride?

How could I swallow my pride?

How could I swallow my pride?

How could I swallow my pride?

 

But I swallowed my pride

When I found out you’d lied with your eyes

With your lips open wide

But you came back to me like a child

 

And I swallowed my pride

When you knew that I cried at the thought of living without you

In the dark, in the cold

In the city of Seoul

When I cried out your name in the night

 

But how could I swallow my pride?

How could I swallow my pride?

Don’t follow the guide

How could I swallow my pride?

But don’t fight the tide

How could I swallow my pride?

Bide your time

How could I swallow my pride?

Ride your line

 

It was Saturday night…

And all of my life

I was waiting for love

I was waiting for one

And then you came along

And you dared

To show you cared

You know that I’m still waiting

 

I crossed the world to

Draw my last breath

With the girl who

Taught me the lessons

Of loss and obsession

But how could I swallow my pride?

How could I swallow my pride?

 

When those feelings had died

I felt hollow inside

So I swallowed my pride

And complied

When you cast me aside

 

But I should come to you

And say “Hang it all, Baby! You know

I love you so.”

But instead I write to you

And say “Hi. How are you? I am fine.”

 

But how could I swallow my pride?

And not be satisfied

Hide my feelings inside

All the anger and love in my heart

 

So I should run to you

And say “Hang it all, Baby! I feel

I love you still.

Like I did before

But having learnt what I’ve learnt maybe more!”

 

But how could I swallow my pride?

How could I swallow my pride?

How could I swallow my pride?

How could I swallow my pride?
