Pride In Hand

from by The Grand Candy



My ink sticky fingers were a fresh coat of blue...
because I didn’t know how to stop.
I had to have it, that was all I knew,
as I smiled at the rent-a-cop.

After I sent you the roses,
letters draft after draft...
Tender, confessing my love...

Here I stand,
Pride in hand

I’m always shopping for forget me nots...
The perfect gift stirs a hitch in my throat
Sure as tears start to form, I can’t stop my arm,
Out it goes, zip, then it’s in my coat.

It's as if I am watching a movie
action, exists on a screen
until, I exit the scene and

Here I stand,
Pride in hand

Each shiny excitement is a feeling I steal
cause a stolen heart it beats just so much
but the cards and chocolates and candy hearts
somehow they’re all spoiled by my touch

As if I’m watching a movie,
letters draft after draft...
tender confessing my love...

Here I stand,
Pride in hand
