Matchbook Romance – The Greatest Fall lyrics

The hand of my clock strikes two.
In times when I got the best of you.
We made promises we couldn't keep,
And every night we couldn't sleep.

I didn't know why,
But didn't ask questions.
Because it was the first time in my life,
Yeah the first time in my life,
Where I did something right.

I set myself up for
The greatest fall of all time.

You pick me apart
While I search for witty things to say
(in my defence)
"You'll never amount to anything anyway"
(Don't push your luck, don't push your luck"

You think that I'm impressed
With your one night stand and your
Contagious kiss.
I'm trying to get this right
'coz I'm ridiculous like that

I set myself up for
The greatest fall of all time.

I'll keep this as a constant reminder
Of the night I spent holding onto her
And rest assured I'm moving on

I miss you less
With each day your gone!

I set myself up for
The greatest fall of all time.
