Pride And Joy

The time of day I can't recall
The kind of thing that takes a toll
Over years of 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
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
It's nothing sacred, nothing new
No one tells you when it's time
There are no warnings, only signs
Then you know that you're alone
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
