“Born To Be Whole” by Prides – A Song Review

     It’s a late night at the piano, thinking about and appreciating the seemingly insignificant moments and character traits. Prides placed their own spin on professing devotion. “Born To Be Whole” is refreshing.

     “Born To Be Whole” is a single from the EP “A Mind Like The Tide: Part Two,” which will be released on March 30, 2018. The Prides are based in Glasgow, Scotland. They are Stewart Brock and Callum Wiseman.

 Lyrics of “Born To Be Whole” by Prides
I’m holding onto familiar ghosts
Another late night out sat down at the piano
I’m going over conversations we had
Testing out the words I never said, but should have

There’s a kiss in the kitchen ice cold
There’s a slow dance in the fireplace so slow
There’s the talk of how we’ll be when we’re old
There’s a thing that we have
Two puzzle piece born to be whole
Two puzzle piece born to be whole

You know my mind it sweeps like the tide
Constant in and out
One man’s unwavering fight
You never did stand for my shit
And you challenge every word
Even as I hold onto it

There’s a smile in the mirror frame, gold
There’s a toothpaste grim laughing at your own jokes
There’s the talk of how we’ll be when we’re old
There’s this thing that we have
Two puzzle piece born to be whole

God damn if there’s so much I want to tell to you
God damn it it’s so hard for me to say
I’ve never known too much, but here’s a hopeful hushing tug
Cause I would love to see your every single day
Every single day

There’s locked arms and arms crossed, imaginations run wild
There’s touch under the table
There’s impeccable style
There’s red lips on balconies and shouting in the street
There’s a kiss as the lift closed
There’s a day spent in sheets

There’s a cannonball, firework, comet, confetti
There’s a promise, a photograph, empty seat that you kept for me
There’s watching you do makeup, a mate for my soul
See there’s things that we have
Two puzzle piece born to be whole
And everybody knows
Two puzzle piece born to be whole

God damn if there’s so much I want to tell to you
God damn it it’s so hard for me to say
I’ve never known too much, but here’s a hopeful hushing tug
Cause I would love to see your every single day
Every single day
