Pride n Price


Many unexpressed emotions have paid the Price  over the years.  

I find the lyrics of this Olivia Newton John song priceless in expressing this. 

It is an eternal favorite talking about what might have been – the angst in the voice , the sheer poignancy of the words would tug at the heart strings of the toughest heart .

The young lovers possibly  meet often and are part of the same clique and yet are never able to tell each other their true feelings.

How many  deep sighs,

How many wistful byes 

How many backward glances

At the oh-so-many lost chances 

Would life demand of them ? 

As Pride paid the Price.

We never really had the chance to let each other know
We never really had the time to let our feelings show
Small talk kept us going when the only words to say
Were, how I long to hold you, pride locked the words away

I never had the confidence to think that you could care
I never looked into your eyes to see if love was there
I talked it over with myself and silently agreed
Your heart was in a high place unreachable to me

I waited too long for a sign from you
Reached for a line that you never threw
Small talk and pride kept us from getting together

Farrar John Clifford

    Indeed, Pride. That leads to having to pay back the ultimate price indeed!
