Walking alone on a cold misty night
I wonder what you’re doing tonight
You're with him you're not with me
In your arms where I always want to be
I open the door once more I’m home
Sit down should I pick up the phone
If I spend my life
Playing your game
When I lose
Then who do I blame?
When do I choose?
Do I just sing the blues?
You're having a good time
I'm alone but that's no crime
Pride comes before a fall
I saw you one last time
But you said you'd never be mine
Pride comes before the fall
But you don't love me at all

The lyrics came from the original Citadel EP sessions in June 1995. I’m not sure how others perceive this song but from the inside, singing it, the atmosphere and lyrics take me away from everything and back to that night Ian was talking about in the opening verse. His ‘cold misty night’ had been around Xmas 1994 and mine was at the start of December 1995.
The one thing about the title is, I’m not really sure to this day what the ‘pride’ is in the song and what ‘fall’ followed.
