Story

I wrote this after a friend of mine was disappointed to see me in a bad mood. She had an idealized version of me that was always happy.

Lyrics

So you think you wanna own a little piece of me You want something to hold onto You want my autograph you want my photograph You wanna live by my philosophy well Living on a pedestal Is no longer my ambition It's not like I can rise above the human condition But you think I'm some kinda hero You think I have all the answers but if you knew the mistakes that I have paid for you'd see I'm not your Jesus I'm not your savior But I was filled with sympathy upon contemplation So many of us living in this world In such desperation Searching for someone or something to guide us to lead us to love us to feed us But one lone human can only do so much But you think I'm some kinda hero You think I've got the touch but just like you I'm only ashes to ashes ashes to ashes to dust So if you think I got it all together I can be a great pretender But the only time I've ever made a change in my life Is when I learned to surrender See just like you I've been to the edge and looked down and I thought about jumping Then not by my own strength I turned away But you think I'm some kinda hero You think I'm so sure and so strong but I know fear and I know weakness I've been scared I've been wrong You think I'm some kind of hero You think I've got all the answers But if you knew the mistakes that I have paid for you'd see I'm not your Jesus I'm not your savior
