Lyrics

Proud

Do you think I’m pretty? 
'Cause you never tell me if you do. 
You think I’m crazy, 
And it might be the truth. 
All the times I heard you cry, 
All those tears were sleepless nights, 
Do you see yourself in me, when you look in my eyes? 

Is that why it’s so hard to be right? 
Why I’ve been fighting for you for all of my life? 
And I don’t want to ask you, ‘cause I don’t want to know, 
But are you proud to call me yours? 

I may not be smart. 
I don’t always know what to do. 
This is so hard, 
Will I ever be as good as you? 
I wish I could just walk away. 
I never would, you make me stay. 
You’ve got a hold of me I can’t escape. 

Is that why it’s so hard to be right? 
Why I’ve been fighting for you for all of my life? 
And I don’t want to ask you, ‘cause I don’t want to know, 
But are you proud to call me your own? 

Bridge: All these nights I lie awake, 
I think of you and my heart breaks. 
One of these times I won’t overcome this pain. 
And if my heart stops beating, would you finally be free ‘cause 
I’ll let myself go, just to know, 
What do you have to do to make you proud of me? 
Is that all I have to do to make you love me? 

23 years, but I’m still lost. 
23 years, and I’m still not good enough. 

And that’s why it’s so hard to be right. 
Why I keep fighting to save my own life. 
And I don’t need to ask you, ‘cause I already know, 
But are you proud to call me yours? 
Why aren’t you proud to call me your own?
