Vera Blue – Pedestal / Cover Me Lyrics

[Part I: Pedestal] [Verse 1] I put myself up on your shelf
You gave it all and nothing else
But no one can live up to these high expectations of mine
But that doesn’t mean that you resist the temptation to try
I remember just how it felt to be loved, to be held

[Refrain] No one can live up to these high expectations of mine
Now, I built a wall that is ten foot tall, and no man can climb

[Chorus] I’m up high, circling around, just waiting to be let down
So, let me down
Terrified, so I pretend there’s reasons for us to end
All over again

[Verse 2] Don’t act surprised when we both know
It’s just the way, the way it goes
I never wanted to leave, but never needed to stay
The harder I tried to keep, the harder it was to change

[Chorus] I’m up high, circling around, just waiting to be let down
So, let me down
Terrified, so I pretend there’s reasons for us to end
All over again

[Bridge] If we fall
If we fall on you
Would you fall
Would you fall on me
If we fall
If we fall on you
Would you fall
Would you fall on me

[Refrain] No one can live up to these high expectations of mine
Now, I built a wall that is ten foot tall, and no man can climb

[Part II: Cover Me] [Verse 3] Cover me, every piece
When I can’t control myself
I wouldn’t be with anybody else
Cover me, never lead
I might be strong on my own
But you’re the better half that makes me whole
Cover me in your truth
Forget all the perfect words
It’s everyday that you show me proof
Forgive me, like you do
When I try, but I fail
When I’m none of these things to you
