Pride And The Gimp Bird

Watching the one legged bird at the coffee shop
pecking at stray crumbs from my croissant
You told me to wait
so I am.

I bought you an orange soda
the Italian kind, just the way you like
and marveled at how you pretended
we never made love.

And I wish I could take back all those times
I said "no, I'm too tired"
and I wish I could take back all the times
I didn't love you.

Your pride won't let me 
come crawling back
Your pride 
won't let me love you again.
