The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart – Contender lyrics

Look what you've done, what do you have now?
Things that never come,
Is it time to come down?

At the back of a crowded scene
You saw the boys in white sing
"I'm a pretender"
But you never were a contender

I heard your same old tune, singing city sins
Like you were the first one
Gave up books for film, gave up film for time
Now that you've got none

At the back of a crowded scene
You saw the boys in white sing
"I'm a pretender"

At the back of a crowded scene
You saw the boys in white sing
"I'm a pretender"
But you never were a contender
