The prizefighter asks for a prayer from the priest.
He's not sure he'll make it through tonight.
He said, "so many times I've been prepared
to throw down my fists and give up the fight."
This is the last time that you'll see the pride in his eyes.
Bruised and swollen shut from punches that ultimately took his life.

As he enters the room, the crowd is deafening.
And he thinks to himself, "What the hell am I doing here?
I left a life so long ago, I knew so well."
This is the last time that you'll see the pride in his eyes.
Bruised and swollen shut from punches that ultimately took his life.
So, so proud.
So, so proud.

This is the last time that you'll see the pride in his eyes.
Bruised and swollen shut from punches that ultimately took his life.
So, so proud.
