Pride And Joy Lyrics

by Brandi Carlile

Time of day I can't recall
The kind of thing that takes its 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
There's nothing sacred, nothing new
No one tells you when its time
There are no warnings, only signs

And you know that you're alone
You're 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
You 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?
