All I want is your pride,
for you to look and say wow.
All I want is your pride,
and maybe I'll do better.

Can't you see I'm trying,
but it's still not good enough for you.
Endless endeavors, meaningless,
if you won't even acknowledge my work.

Though you tell me great,
a smile on your face,
I still wonder,
if there's something else hiding underneath.

I hear you sighing
after telling me about a kid
who is better than me.

All I want is just your pride,
I'll never be good at everything.
I'll never be that other kid,
so please just be proud of who I am.
