VERSE I
You were the North Star, once in a time
And I was the girl with her eyes to the sky
Til you shed a light that had yet to be cast
You were a meteor, crashin....

You made the mistakes
that would damage your name
But I gave you the reigns,
so I'm taking the blame....

CHORUS
(Cause) I'm the one who placed you on
a pedestal made of songs,
Though you're the one who's tumbling,
I'm the one to shatter...
You're the one who let me down,
But I'm the one who's singing 'bout it
Though you're the one who fell from grace,
I'm the one to break....

VERSE 2
You were the hero, your mind made of gold
I was the damsel, saved by your soul
But you hurt my heart post-rescue & save
You were just human, with feet made of clay....

You made the mistakes
that would damage your name
But I gave you the reigns,
so I'm taking the blame....

CHORUS
(Cause) I'm the one who placed you on
a pedestal made of songs,
Though you're the one who's tumbling,
I'm the one to shatter...
You're the one who let me down,
But I'm the one who's singing bout it
Though you're the one who fell from grace,
I'm the one to break....

BRIDGE
You may not notice every stone
Upon the land you stand on
From Paradise to oceans,
You saw them all as grains of sand
But you just lost a ruby
When you held her in your hands....

CHORUS
I'm the one who placed you on
a pedestal made of songs,
Though you're the one who's tumbling,
I'm the one to shatter...
You're the one who let me down,
But I'm the one who's singing bout it
Though you're the one who fell from grace,
I'm the one who's breaking like glass...

OUTRO
You can't piece the parts
of a heart back together
You can't bring the past back,
You can only remember...
But you'll never sound that way
And I'll never see you the same
