Small Talk and Pride - Olivia Newton-John

We never really had the chance to let each other know
We never really had the time to let our feelings show
Small talk kept us going
When the only words to say
Were how I long to hold you
Pride locked the words away

I never had the confidence to think that you could care
I never looked into your eyes to see if love was there
I talked it over with myself and silently agreed
Your heart was in a high place unreachable to me

I waited too long for a sign from you
Reached for a line that you never threw
Small talk and pride kept us from getting together
Now there's never a day you're not on my mind
Saying the words we could never find
Small talk and pride took you from my life forever

I'll never hold the cards again
To win a love so real
I know I'd gamble everything
But Mistress Fate won't deal
I just have to be content to learn by my mistakes
Our hearts were just a breath away
Now they're far enough to break

I waited too long for a sign from you
Reached for a line that you never threw
Small talk and pride kept us from getting together
Now there's never a day you're not on my mind
Saying the words we could never find
Small talk and pride took you from my life forever
