Pedestal

written by Kristen Noel


I’m trying hard to comprehend

but I guess this is the end

of a mentor of a friend

spoken words we cannot mend


I wipe away the tears within

of promises through thick-and-thin

Such a light I saw you in

now a shadow hides your skin


And the writing’s on the wall

smoke and mirrors that made you tall

when placed upon a pedestal

they’re always gonna fall


As I’m picking up my pearls

in a lonely midnight world

I click my heels and take a twirl

This isn’t Kansas little girl





And the writing’s on the wall

smoke and mirrors that made you tall

when placed upon a pedestal

they’re always gonna fall


But you can’t stand no more

exalted like before

and you can wave your last encore


And the writing’s on the wall

smoke and mirrors that made you tall

when placed upon a pedestal

they’re always gonna fall


Standing on your pedestal

you’re always gonna fall
