LYRICS

 
NO MORE PROUD
(Wright/Crickmore/Nelson)

 
How can I tell how you feel any more?
How can you ever explain?
I can't even get to even the score
The facts of the matter
Are so far from being plain

The leaves on the trees are dying now
As the sun goes back to the north
And I can never understand how
Anything I do can ever be of any worth

You've got away
You've got away
You've got away
You've got away

The sun like your love is extinguished
It's gone cold over here where I stay
My soul is a lake full of anguish
I never thought it would hurt me this way

You've got away
You've got away
You've got away
You've got away
It's crisp and cold in my winter world
Now the sun only stalks between clouds
And the late night jet plane vapour trails
They're shadows that are like me
No more proud

The trees shine like stain glass windows
Now the autumn sun lies low
Now the cowardly children
Throw sticks at the fruit
It's the truth I am dying to know

You've got away
You've got away
You've got away
You've got away
You've got away
You've got away
You've got away
You've got away
Ho!
