"Who You Are Without Me" as written by Kate Elizabeth Voegele, Daniel John Muckala and Lindy Robbins....
You put me up on a pedestal
I've got nowhere to go but down
You expect the impossible
And it's too much to carry around

Well, you tell me I'm beautiful
It feels empty and I don't know why
But it seems that you're certainly
Something I'm not gonna find

I'm not your anchor, so don't hold on
I'm not the answer, you got me wrong
I'm not your savior, save your energy
To find out who you are, yeah who you are without me

Wide awake lying next to you
Being careful to get the words right
See it hurt me to tell you this
But it kills me to keep it inside

And I'm at one with the present tense
Making plans is overrated to me
And I don't speak in guarantees
Or at least not the kind that you need

I'm not your anchor, so don't hold on
I'm not the answer, you got me wrong
I'm not your savior, save your energy
To find out who you are, yeah who you are without me

Well, I still believe in happy endings
But this just isn't where I wanna spend mine
I'll be leaving now I've said it

I'm not your anchor, so don't hold on
I'm not the answer, you got me wrong
I'm not your savior, save your energy
And find out who you are

I'm not a mirror, look inside yourself
I'm not a hero, you know too well
I'm not your savior, save your energy
To find out who you are, yeah who you are without me
Who you are without me

    General CommentI love when she says
    "I'm not your savior, save your energy"
    She's got an amazing voice...

    Anyways, she realizes that the person she's singing to (probably a boyfriend) has come to rely on her too much. He has this vision that she's perfect, and she wants him to realize she's not. It's along the same lines as "Halo" by Bethany Joy Galeotti

    Put me up on a pedestal
    I've got nowhere to go but down
    You expect the impossible
    And it's too much to carry around

    Well you tell me I'm beautiful
    It feels empty and I don't know why
    But it seems that you're SEARCHING ME
    FOR something YOU'RE not gonna find

    I'm not your anchor, so don't hold on
    I'm not the answer, you've got me wrong
    I'm not your savior, save your energy
    To find out who you are
    Yeah, who you are without me

    Wide awake, lying next to you
    Being careful to get the words right
    See it hurts me tell you this
    But it kills me you keep it inside

    And I'm ALONE with the present tense
    Making plans is overrated to me
    And I don't speak in guarantees
    Or at least not the kind that you need

    I'm not your anchor, so don't hold on
    I'm not the answer, you've got me wrong
    I'm not your savior, save your energy
    To find out who you are
    Yeah, who you are without me

    Well I still believe in happy endings
    But this just isn't where I wanna spend mine
    I'll be leaving now, I've said it
    Oh-OH-OH

    I'm not your anchor, so don't hold on
    I'm not the answer, you've got me wrong
    I'm not your savior, save your energy
    And find out who you are

    I'm not a mirror, looks inside yourself
    I'm not a hero, you know too well
    I'm not your savior, save your energy
    To find out who you are
    Yeah, who you are without me
    Who you are without me yeah
    Oh-oh-oh

    My OpinionI think Kate's voice is beautiful and one of my favorite lyrics of all time (well, up to now...) is:
    "I'm not a mirror, look inside yourself."
    How awesome is that?!
