Not a Matter of Pride

© Faymusic Publishing Written and composed by Mike Silver

She knows he thinks about her tho’ the times are not so grand
But you can only play the cards you’re holding in your hand
She knows he thinks of leaving doesn’t wanna let him go
While there’s something left unfinished something that she needs to know

He says let’s decorate the bedroom DIY from the superstore
But he’s five cans down a six-pack he’s not listening any more
Yes she feels his heart is kinder than he wants to let her think
So she exercises patience does the dishes in the sink

Take your time ‘till you decide
Its a matter of love not a matter of pride
When people get close they sometimes collide
Oh how the truth gets turned into lies

He says I wish I had some money I’d show this town a thing or tow
See my woman let her hair down like she always wanted to
Tho’ I’m just a weekend dreamer still my heart’s not far away
Would she be better if I leave her or better if I stay

Take your time…

He doesn’t want another woman she doesn’t look at other men
An affair might be exciting yet disappoint you in the end
They both know there’s something missing floating just beyond their reach
In this lover’s search and rescue will they find what they might keep

Take your time…

Piano and harmony: Johnny Coppin
Guitar and vocal: Mike
