He's a fool for conditions
He's a sucker for gold
Hammers you to submission
Never loses control
I was there when he met you
I was always amazed
Never let him upset you
I was always afraid
I've heard you talk about swallowing pride
I've heard you laugh about swallowing pride
I've heard you cry a lot
I wonder why
I'm the soul you can count on
I'm the face you can trust
A secret door to rely on when you've taken enough
Oh you know, I'll be there when he's left you
I'll be ever amazed
Always willing to help you with the love of a slave
I've learned you laugh about swallowing pride
I've learned you talk about swallowing pride
Learned when to block it out
Learned to deny
I've heard you talk about swallowing pride
I've heard you laugh about swallowing pride
I've heard you cry a lot
I wonder why
