Pride Before A Fall - Maximo Park

If I gave you a name, would you live up to it?
If I gave you a game, would you play up for me?
If I played with your heart, would you respect me?
If I came on too shy, would you reject me?

What did I do to you?
Why does it hurt when I hear your name?
What did I do to you?
Why does it hurt when I hear your name?

Pride before a fall,
None of us are perfect figures.
Pride before a fall,
You made me reconsider.

If I had portioned the blame, could you hold up to it?
And if I ran out of strength, could you forgive me?
I looked at you for too long, the other day.
It was then when I knew, that you weren't the one,
You weren't the one.

What did I do to you?
Why does it hurt when I hear your name?
What did I do to you?
Why does it hurt when I hear your name?

Pride before a fall,
None of us have got a perfect figure.
Pride before a fall,
You forced me to reconsider.

I looked at you today,
I looked at you another way.

Pride before a fall,
None of us are perfect figures.
Pride before a fall,
You forced me to reconsider.
