Monster

  • You put me on a pedestal and tell me I'm the best
    Raise me up into the sky until I'm short of breath, yeah
    Fill me up with confidence, I say what's in my chest
    Spill my words and tear me down until there's nothin' left
    Rearrange the pieces just to fit me with the rest, yeah

    But what if I, what if I trip?
    What if I, what if I fall?
    Then am I the monster?
    Just let me know
    And what if I, what if I sin?
    And what if I, what if I break? Yeah
    Then am I the monster? Yeah
    Just let me know, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

    I was fifteen when the world put me on a pedestal
    I had big dreams of doin' shows and makin' memories
    Made some bad moves tryna act cool, upset by they jealousy
    Liftin' me up (liftin' me up), liftin' me up (yeah)
    And tearin' me down (down), tearin' me down, yeah (down, down)
    I'll take responsibility for everything I've done (yeah)
    Holdin' it against me like you're the holy one, yeah)
    I had a chip on my shoulder, had to let it go
    'Cause unforgiveness keeps them in control
    I came in with good intentions then I let it go
    And now I really wanna know

    What if I, what if I trip? (Oh)
    What if I, what if I fall? (I fall)
    Then am I the monster? (Am I the monster?)
    Just let me know (let me know)
    And what if I, what if I sin? (Oh)
    And what if I, what if I break? Yeah
    Then am I the monster? (Am I the monster?)
    Just let me know (oh, please just let me know, yeah)

    La-da-da, da-da (baby, what if I fall down?)
    La-da-da, da-da-da, da
    La-da-da-da, da-da
    La-da-da, da-da-da, da
    La-da-da-da, da-da (please don't let me fall)
    La-da-da-da, da-da-da, da
    La-da-da-da, da-da (oh, please don't let me fall)
