Pocketfull of Pride

from Moonbow by Purplefly



Composed March - April 1995


Undue optimism’s
Got me wonderin’
If maybe through all the things you’ve said
You’ve spread yourself too thin
That you play it up so much
Sure tells me a lot
If you don’t got a choice well then it pays to be
Happy with what you've got

That you can’t be honest
About the situation you’re in
Looks like you’re leaving it
A situation that’s no win
Dig inside those pockets bro
And tell me what you’ve got
A pocketfull of battered pride
Don’t amount to a lot

You can keep your pocketfull of pride
I hope it helps to warm you up when it’s cold outside
When the sun is sinking low and the sky is turning shades of red
You can keep your pocketfull of pride not listening to what I said...
