Daryl Hall & John Oates – Foolish Pride lyrics

When I'm hurt then I come on strong

I wanna break down

But I just keep it in

Being too strong is a weakness, girl

Cause when you fight the world

You know whos gonna win

And you say I wont look you in the eye

Its like talking to a wall

But a wall can crumble down

Yeah theres something that's deep inside

That's gotta be tough

Whenever youre around

I've got this foolish pride

And pride goes before a fall

Yeah I've got this foolish pride

You make me feel like the livin end

But the end came quick

And made me wanna die

So I played like I didn't care

Didn't mess my hair

Believe me I don't know why

I've got this foolish pride

And pride goes before a fall

Yeah I've got this foolish pride

If I wanted I colled have fooled em all

That's great til tomorrow when I'm all alone

You know the truth comes out in the end

When the fools start falling they need their friends
