How is it that I always fall short?
All I've ever wanted to do was make you happy
But you made that impossible when you put me on that pedestal
Take me down!
I don't want to be up here
Here, where every thing is perfect
And I'm judged as if I am perfect
I'm not perfect!
I make mistakes!
But you didn't give me a chance to show you just how human I am
You wanted someone to worship so you put me on a pedestal
You knew that one day I would falter and you took pride in that
Why do my failures make you happy?
How can you expect me to be perfect but stand there and wish that I would fail?
Wish that I would fall
I sit up here alone and wish you would come to reality
I'm not perfect!
I'm not worthy to be held so high that I feel like I am one with the clouds
I am not worthy of your worship!
But I don't deserve your hatred and spite
All I ever wanted to do was live!
Let me Live!
I'm tired of trying to make sure everything I do pleases you.
I'm tired of being up here all alone!
I'm coming down.
I'm going to live
Sorry if I upset you,
but what about me?
