She stayed up all night and cried into her pillow
And fought off the urge to just break down and call
Last night to find the fault seemed so darn easy
But now whose to blame don't matter much at all
She thinks if she calls him it just shows weakness
So the hurt goes on with every tear she's cried
Ain't it sad to see a good love fall to pieces
Chalk another heartbreak up to foolish pride

Chorus:
Turn out the lights the competition's over
The stubborn souls are the losers here tonight
And while the bridges burn, another hard-hard lesson's learned
As through the ashes passion slowly dies
And this romance goes down to foolish pride

He relives every word they spoke in anger
He walks the floor and punches out the wall
To apologize to her would be so simple
But instead he cries I'll be damned if I'll crawl
If he loses her he's lost his best friend
And that's more then just a lover can provide
So he wrestles with emotions that defeat him
Chalk another love lost up to foolish pride

Chorus

Chalk another heartbreak up to foolish pride

    General CommentI don't like country music much, but this is a good song. Travis Tritt's best from what I've heard. This and his cover of "Take It Easy."

    General CommentI love this song...and have been listening to it, in heavy rotation lately.
    Some of these lyrics hit me hard.
    Travis Tritt, has always been a favorite of mine. Writes most of all his own music..and a great guitar player.
