My Pride

Because of my pride

that’s the answer I always gave when I never replied

the reason why I never really tried

and the only reason why I lied

because of my pride

the reason why I can’t be that bad guy

the reason why I won’t sell u dreams because your body I want to buy

the reason why I didn’t glide inside u like clyde

it’s because of my pride

the reason why u never cried

the reason why I can’t ever be your guide

to that dark place that always made u feel like u died

the reason why our insecurities will never collide

the reason why no feelings will subside

the reason why I will never be in your past and used as a reason to hide

so I can’t be the reason why good guys get denied

it’s because of my pride

now don’t get me wrong, I can say hi

but I struggle with putting the feeling of lust to the side

that’s why I’m so quick in saying goodbye

it’s because of my pride
