A/N (10.19.2019): I got to thinking - if we publish songs on here, we should also publish the virtualpiano code for it so that readers can listen along. I think I'm gonna make that the second 'chapter' to this posting (and to the other song I have published on here). Who's with me? :)


why do I feel so heartbroken
up til now we hadn't spoke in
six long years have changed my memory

I own that I may have projected
based on the facts that I collected
now that we're face to face, it's plain to see

I placed you on a pedestal so high
I didn't mean to, but I idealised
you were never anyone but yourself
in my head, I made you someone else
the fact that I saw differently
that was on me

that was on me

you weren't quite what I expected
now I'm left feeling dejected
what I imagined was so far from the truth

I may not be sophisticated
but in my heart I know I made it
if only that were good enough for you

I placed you on a pedestal so high
I didn't mean to, but I idealised
you were never anyone but yourself
in my head, I made you someone else
the fact that I saw differently
that was on me

I was wrong about so many things, but
I'm relieved to have gotten some parts right
like your kindness and your intelligence
there's no way to make up that gorgeous smile

I placed you on a pedestal so high
I didn't mean to, but I idealised
you were never anyone but yourself
in my head, I made you someone else
the fact that I saw differently

the fact that I still hope differently

that was on me
that was on me
that was on me
