02. Pedestal

BarlowGirl
by BarlowGirl



 

You’re the coolest person
That I have ever seen
So perfect with your pretty face
On the TV screen

You’re a god I know it
How you stand above them all
You are my perfect person
Man I’d hate to see you fall

I want someone to believe in
Yeah well don’t we all?
‘Cause in this life of imperfection
Need someone who won’t fall
You got it, you got it, you got it all

Got a magazine today
That was full of you
Shocked to read the words they said
Tell me they’re not true

Add you to my fallen list
One more has hit the ground
The fault was mine
Held you too high
Your only way was down

I can’t deny this need inside
I have to find the perfect one
But I wonder if behind my need
There might just be a reason?

Is my life just one big searching
For the one I can adore?
It never works
And I’m just left here wanting more

Could it be this hunger is there
To drive me to the One
Who’s worthy of all worship
Would my searching then be done?

Behind the Song:
'This song touches on how we put celebrities up on pedestals. On the surface, they seem perfect so we look up to them in almost every way. God really showed us that He put that need inside us for Him, because He is the perfect person who will not fall. That we need to, in a way, idolize God, because He is perfect and we want to strive to be like Him every day.' - Lauren Barlow (BarlowGirl)
