Alanis Morissette - Pedestal Lyrics


I’m sure you’ve enjoyed the ride, who wouldn’t?
I’m sure every perk has perked you up, how could it not?
And every opportunity through me helped you climb, didn’t it?
Dropping my name blew doors open that were closed before

And one day you’ll see that you’ve never really seen me
One day you’ll find out that everything you dreamed of wasn’t who stood before you
One day I won’t be craved the way you crave me now
As this pedestal crumbles down
And crashes me to the ground

I’m sure you enjoyed my name, who wouldn’t take advantage?
I’m sure you enjoyed this game and the proxy pride that you landed
And everything vicarious seemed to build you up
You grabbed my crown and got everything you wanted

And one day you’ll see that you’ve never really loved me
One day you’ll find out that everything you dreamed of wasn’t who stood before you
One day I won’t be craved the way you crave me now
As this pedestal crumbles down
And crashes me to the ground

You’re left with a human being
You’re left with a fallible soul
Oh, when the glitter falls
I’m here and sometimes average, sometimes more
When the glare of the lights grow dim
And you’re left with a delicate real
When the bright lights clear, there’s just me sitting here

One day you’ll see that you’ve never really seen me
And one day you’ll find out that everything you dreamed of, wasn’t who stood before you
One day I won’t be craved the way you crave me now
As this pedestal crumbles down
As this pedestal crashes down
Crashes me to the ground

I hope you enjoyed the ride, who wouldn’t?
Who wouldn’t?
