"Naive" as written by and Luke Pritchard....
I'm not saying it your fault
Although you could have done more

Oh, you're so naive, yet so

How could this be done?
By such a smiling sweetheart
Oh, and your sweet and pretty face
In such an ugly way
Something so beautiful
That every time I look inside

I know that she knows that I'm not fond of asking
True or false, it may be
She's still out to get me

I know that she knows that I'm not fond of asking
True or false, it may be
She's still out to get me

I may say it was your fault
'Cause I know you could have done more

Oh, you're so naive, yet so

How could this be done
By such a smiling sweetheart?
Oh, and your sweet and pretty face
In such an ugly way something so beautiful
Every time I look inside

I know that she knows that I'm not fond of asking
True or false, it may be
She's still out to get me

I know that she knows that I'm not fond of asking
True or false, it may be
She's still out to get me

How could this be done
By such a smiling sweetheart?

Oh, you're so naive, yet so

Such an ugly thing
Someone so beautiful
And every time you're on his side

I know she knows that I'm not fond of asking
True or false, it maybe be
She's still out to get me

And I know she knows that I'm not fond of asking
True or false, it maybe be
She's still out to get me

Just don't let me down
Just don't let me down
Hold on to your kite
Just don't let me down
Just don't let me down
Hold on to your kite
Just don't let me down
Just don't let me down
Hold on to this kite
Just don't let me down
Just don't let me down

    General CommentI never saw the video......But I think he's talking about his girlfriend having a good guy friend who obviously likes her and she is acting 'naive' and oblivious to it. He's not fond of asking about it because they have been friends. He's not saying it's her fault, because she's not making any intentional moves but she could do more to get the guy friend to back off. She's out to get him because the whole situation is questionable and driving him crazy.....she takes the friends side, playing them against eachother.

    "Just hold on to your kite. Just don't let me down" He's in the clouds/flying high being with her, but she better not let him down and actually be cheating.

    Love this song!

    General CommentOk, so I used this song as a supplementary English text and scored pretty high.
    I compared the lyrics to the video clip and my interpretation was that the girl is an alcoholic. This song is about how alcohol affects her so much that she cheats.
    "I'm not saying it was your fault, Although you could have done more" refers to the act of cheating, in the clip she was so intoxicated that when she had sex with that guy she was unable to say no. I know that she didn't intentionally cheat because of these lyrics and because in the video she is constantly searching for her boyfriend, mistaking him for other guys infact the lyrics "she's still out to get me" probably mean that she is trying to find him.
    "oh you're so naive yet so, How could this be done by such a smiling sweetheart" refers to her naivety to drinking and the effects alcohol has on her, "In such an ugly way" is how the alcohol turns her ugly, and lets all these ugly things like cheating happen.
    Finally " I know she knows that I'm not fond of asking" means that they both know she has a drinking problem, and they both know that he doesn't want to drive her away by asking her to stop.

    So I hope that was helpful

    General Commentto me it sounds like she's cheating and he knows it, and she knows he knows, but he doesnt want to bring it up

    lines that support this :
    "And everytime you're on his side"
    suggest cheating

    "I know she knows that I'm not fond of asking"
    suggests what i said about him not wanting to bring it up

    "Oh you're so naive yet so"
    naive in that she thought he wouldnt find out

    General Commentit makes more sense if the lyrics are

    "die everytime I look inside"

    and

    "die everytime you're on his side"

    General Commenti also think that this song is about a girl cheating on him, having seen the video this defintely seems to be the jist of the song.
    but i also think that it is more about her intentions to cheat than her actually cheatin "true or false it may be but shes still out to get me", it does't matter whether she is cheating or not the point is that she wants him to think she is.

    General CommentI don`t like stating the obvious, as I think the meaning of the lyrics is pretty clear. I just want to speak about my favourite part of the song.

    "Such an ugly thing
    Someone so beautiful"

    I think the contrast in the lyrics is absolutely gorgeous. Listen to the lead singer`s voice when he sings this part - it seems to me as if he is actually feeling what he says. It just.. feels so real. You can see the picture painted with words even if you have never lived a similar experience.

    General CommentThis song really reminds me of the situation of two people I know. The song is about a guy and a girl. The guy in the song really likes the girl but she doesn't feel the same way about him. The girl is totally into drinking and partying and participating in random hookups. The guy can't stand to watch this all happen. When she gets hurt, she goes crawling back to him. He's always there for her but it pains him to see what becomes of her. He wants more than anything to be with her and treat her right but she keeps messing up. He comforts her, thinking it will be different this time but she leaves him again. She becomes a burden on his heart.

    I can't even begin to explain how well I sympathize with this situation.
