Man of Pride

Would it be enough
If we won the easy way?
No, it never would be
Give me something more
Give me a reason now to stay
Or else set me free
Everywhere I turn it seems
Something's cluttering my dreams
Clouds are rising over on the hill

 Hey what can I do?
 'Cuz I can't hide these things that I see
 When my heart is right beside me
 I'm a man of pride yes I am
 I can't hide what I am
 I can't hide

Crossed the borderline
Swam for all that I was worth
In the forbidden sea
Stayed up a hundred days
Got a taste of mother earth
And how things could be
Tumbled down a rocky slope
Hanging by a threadbare rope
Man I never felt so damned alive

 Hey what can I do?
 'Cuz I can't hide these things that I feel
Or tell a story if it ain't real
 I'm a man of pride yes I am
I can't hide what I am
I can't hide

It was all so long ago
Everything fades to blue
Everything fades to blue

I tried to stand too tall
Cast a shadow on your heart
Now the rain's coming down
Scattered to the wind
Every ending has a start
This clock's come unwound
Memories of yesterdays
Something leaves something stays
Everybody's hoping for the best

Hey what can I do?
 'Cuz I can't hide these things that I see
 When my heart is screaming at me
And I can't hide these things that I feel
Or tell a story if it ain't real
 I'm a man of pride yes I am
 I can't hide what I am
 I can't hide
