Foolish Pride

Travis Tritt

She stayed up all night and cried into her pillow,
And fought off the urge to just break down and call.
Last night to find the fault seemed so darn easy,
But now who's to blame don't matter much at all.

She thinks if she calls him, it just shows weakness,
So the hurt goes on with every tear she's cried.
Ain't it sad to see a good love fall to pieces,
Chalk another heartbreak up to foolish pride.

Turn out the lights, the competition's over
The stubborn souls are the losers here tonight
And while the bridges burn
Another hard heart's lesson's learned
As in the ashes, passion slowly dies
And this romance goes down to foolish pride.

He relives every word they spoke in anger,
He walks to floor and punches out the wall.
To apologize to her, would be so simple,
But instead he cries, 'I'll be damned if I crawl'.

If he loses her, he's lost his best friend,
And more than just a lover can provide.
So he wrestles with emotions that defeat him,
Chalk another love lost up to foolish pride.


Chalk another love lost up to foolish pride.
