Pride and Joy

Vor einiger Zeit habe ich schon einmal geschrieben:
„Manche Lieder hauen dich einfach um“

Heute habe ich wieder so ein Lied gehört. Komischerweise ist es wieder Brandi Carlile – diesmal „Pride and Joy“

No one tells you when its time
There are no warnings, only signs
And you know that you’re alone

Do I make you proud
Do you get me now
Am I your pride and joy“

Der komplette Text…

Pride and Joy

(Brandi Carlile)

Time of day I can’t recall
The kind of thing that takes it’s toll
Over years and over time
Over smiles and over wine
All in all it wasn’t bad
All in all it wasn’t good
But I still care

That’s the problem with the days
They’re never long enough to say
What it is you never said
All the books you never read
I throw myself into the wind
Hoping somebody might pick me up
And carry me again

Where are you now
Do you let me down
Do you make me grieve for you
Do I make you proud
Do you get me now

Am I your pride and joy

I believe this to be true
Nothing sacred, nothing new
No one tells you when its time
There are no warnings, only signs
And you know that you’re alone
Not a child anymore
But you’re still scared

All your mountains turn to rocks
All your oceans turn to drops
They are nothing like you thought
Can’t be something you are not
Life is not a looking glass
Don’t get tangled in your past
Like I am learning not to

Where are you now
Do you let me down
Do you make me grieve for you
Do I make you proud
Do you get me now
Am I your pride and joy
