  • Standing here like I'm supposed to say something
    Don't hold your breath, I never said I'd save you, honey
    And I don't want your money
    If I was you I'd run from me or
    Rip me open you'll see you're not the only one who's hopeless
    Be sure to put your faith in something more
    I'm just a girl and you're not as alone as you feel
    We all got problems, don't we?
    We all need heroes, don't we?
    But rest assured there's not a single person here who's worthy

    La, la, la, la, la, la, la
    Don't let me let you down

    Hey, baby I'm not your superhuman
    And if that's what you want
    I hate to let you down
    I got your hopes up
    Now I got you hoping
    That I'm gonna be the one that let you down

    Oh, it's such a long and awful lonely fall
    Down from this pedestal that you keep putting me on
    What if I fall on my face?
    What if I make a mistake?
    If it's okay a little grace would be appreciated
    Remember how we used to like ourselves?
    What little light that's left, we need to keep it sacred
    I know that you're afraid to let all the dark escape you
    But we could let the light illuminate these hopeless places

    La, la, la, la, la, la, la
    Just let me let you down

    Hey, baby I'm not your superhuman
    And if that's what you want
    I hate to let you down
    I got your hopes up
    Now I got you hoping
    That I'm gonna be the one that let you down

    La, la, la, la, la, la, la
    La, la, la, la, la, la, la

    Oh, no, I ain't your hero
    You're wasting all your faith on me
    Oh, no, I know where this goes
    Think it's safe to say your savior doesn't look a thing like me

    La, la, la, la, la, la, la
    Don't let me let you down

    Hey, baby I'm not your superhuman
    And if that's what you want
    I hate to let you down
    I got your hopes up
    Now I got you hoping
    That I'm gonna be the one that let you down

    Hey, baby I'm not your superhuman
    And if that's what you want
    I hate to let you down
    I got your hopes up
    Now I got you hoping
    That I'm gonna be the one that let you down Writer/s: Hayley Nichole Williams, Taylor York
