Needles And Pins - Jackie Deshannon

Needles And Pins

Jackie Deshannon

(Jack Nitzche - Sonny Bono, LIBERTY 55563, 1963)

I saw him today, I saw his 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
But still they begin, needles and pins
Because of all my pride
The tears I gotta hide
Hey, I thought I was smart
I'd win his heart
And I didn't think I'd lose
But know I see
She's worse to him than me
Let him go ahead, take her love instead
And one day he will see
Just how to say please
Oh, and get down on his knees
Hey, that's how it begins
He'll feel those needles and pins
A-hurtin' him, a-hurtin' him
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 him today, I saw his face
It was a face I loved, I can't let go
Although I know, he'll make me cry
Whow-oh-oh, till the day I die
But people, I got to live now
And Lord knows, I have to forgive now
Yeah, when it begins
He'll feel those needles and pins
A-hurtin' him, oh stop it now
Stop those needles, stop those pins
Don't let them begin
Oh, won't you hear what I say
Somebody, take 'em away
Stop 'em now, stop 'em
Stop those needles and pins
Yeah-yeah
Oh, when it begins
I feel those needles and pins
