I never promised you a ray of light
I never promised there’d be sunshine every day
I’ll give you everything I have
The good, the bad

Why do you put me on a pedestal?
I’m so up high that I can’t see the ground below
So help me down you’ve got it wrong
I don’t belong there

One thing is clear
I wear a halo
I wear a halo when you look at me
But standing from here
You wouldn’t say so
You wouldn’t say so if you were me
And I, I just want to love you
Oh I, I just want to love you

I always said that I would make mistakes
I’m only human and that’s my saving grace
I’ll fall as hard as I try
So don’t be blinded
See me as I really am
I have flaws and sometimes I even sin
So pull me from that pedestal
I don’t belong there

One thing is clear
I wear a halo
I wear a halo when you look at me
But standing from here
You wouldn’t say so
You wouldn’t say so if you were me
And I, I just want to love you
Oh I, I just want to love you

Like to think that you know me
But in your eyes
I am something above me
That's only in your mind
Only in your mind

I wear a, I wear a, I wear a Halo

One thing is clear
I wear a halo
I wear a halo when you look at me
But standing from here
You wouldn’t say so
You wouldn’t say so if you were me
And I, I just want to love you
Oh I, I just want to love you

(I just wanna love you)
Heya Hey Hey Hey…Hey Hey Halo
Heya Hey Hey Hey…Hey Hey Halo
Heya Hey Hey Hey…Hey Hey Halo
Heya Hey Hey Hey…Hey Hey Halo

    General Commenti love this song because i relate to it...its about a girl who just basically feels like her boyfriend puts her on a pedestal because he wants to see her perfection..but she's telling him that to him she wears a halo...but if he really saw it from her point of view he wouldnt think so..and she doesnt wanna be put on a pedestal known as better than anyone else..she wants him to know she makes mistakes just like the average person and she is just only human...she sins and she doesnt wanna seem perfect..she wants to seem like herself.

    General CommentBrilliant song about imperfection still being beautiful and given everything you are to a relationship and having that be enough.

    General CommentI think this song is just about a girl who doesn't want to disappoint her boyfriend. He's asking to much from her or she's afraid not to give enough.

    General CommentThis song isnt jsut about a boyfriend. In an interview she explained that it meant she feels like she has to be perfect.Like ppl wont accept her if she isn't. But she always said that it could mean many things to different ppl.

    General CommentThis song is simple...It's about someone looking at they're boyfriend/girlfriend as someone they're not. It's not even about perfection but about trying to be someone who to fufill the thoughts of someone else and making you feel as though you need to be someone to impress them. " I fall as hard as I try", It's also saying that though he/she is the one pushing you to be that person, you are still the one going along with it and in the end, it's just as bad.
