A Trophy To Bear

from by Mike Uva

/

lyrics

flung from your lips
the insult that is so poetic
i could almost recite

but i won't fight
try as you might to drag me
into your garden of woe
i won't go, no

and i don't even think that you know
the reason for your angry words
and i don't care if you're right
no, i won't fight
throw that sucker punch because

i don't like fighting
and i won't play that game
and i can hold my words as long as my breath
and so far i've always won, yeah i've always won

now that you see me
bleeding from the fall i've taken
you still swear to the night
that you were right

but i don't like fighting
and i won't play that game
and i can hold my words as long as my breath
and so far i've always won, yeah i've always won
throw that sucker punch because

i don't like fighting
and i won't play that game
and when i come to, it's mostly still true
but i have a trophy to bear
