Needles And Pins    (1963)

I saw her today, I saw her face
It was a face I loved, and I knew
I had to run away
And get down on my knees and pray, that they'd go away
And still they begin, needles and pins
Because of all my pride, the tears I gotta hide

Hey I thought I was smart, I won her heart
I didn't think I'd do, but now I see
She's worse to him than me, let her go ahead
Take his love instead, and one day she will see
Just how to say please, and get down on her knees
Hey, that's how it begins, she'll feel those needles and pins
Hurtin' her, hurtin' her

Why can't I stop, and tell myself I'm wrong, I'm wrong, so wrong
Why can't I stand up, and tell myself I'm strong

Because, I saw her today, I saw her face
It was a face I loved, and I knew
I had to run away
And get down on my knees and pray, that they'd go away
And still it begins, needles and pins
Because of all my pride, the tears I gotta hide
Needles and pins, needles and pins, needles and pins
