wouldn’t it be nice to be proud lyrics – evan & jaron

now i’ve found a little time
to take a look back
from the caboose
and follow the tracks of my life.
they’re tangled about lying true.
and i know it’s just me,
my point of view,
but those are the
important two,
and i don’t need
to check with the crowd.
wouldn’t it be nice to be proud?
the door was open
and into the night.
i jumped through
and turned on the light.
i started to see
though it wasn’t that bright
i saw island sky
but it wasn’t all blue.
my aces weren’t right
but i didn’t want to lose,
so i put up a fight
and screamed out loud.
wouldn’t it be nice to be proud?
and when it all is clear,
the time to repair
disappears
takin’ with it chances left untried.
see my friends
huddled together,
tryin’ to stay warm
in nasty weather.
we’d beat the odds,
whenever they’d call.
and all the jokes
that i played on friends
never did get
me in the end.
i guess i was
given more than allowed.
wouldn’t it be nice to be proud?
and when it all is clear
the time to repair
disappears
takin’ with it chances left untried.
