NEEDLES AND PINS
The Searchers


I saw her today, I saw her face

It was the face I loved and I knew

I had to run away and get down on my knees and pray

That they'd go away


But still they begin

Needles and pins

Because of all my pride

The tears I gotta hide


Hey, I thought I was smart, I wanted her

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

Yeah, that's how it begins

She'll feel those needles and pins

a-hurtin her, a-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 the face I loved and I knew

I had to run away and get down on my knees and pray

That they'd go away


But still they begin

Needles and pins

Because of all my pride

The tears I gotta hide

Ah, needles and pins

Needles and pins

Needles and pins
