don't take the jester for a king,
don't ask a beggar for a ring,
I'm not the one to wear that crown,
I'm not a nut that you can crack,
I'm just a gift that you'll take back,
once you discover, with a frown,
that I will only let you down,
trust me when I say:
you'll be better without me around,
you've got both feet on the ground,
but my head's in the clouds,
it's not coming down..
you seem to see something in me,
something you think that I could be,
a best-case version of myself,
but I've been through this all before
watched other heads peek in the door
what they were looking for was somewhere else,
and I will only let you down..
..I've gone and done it once again,
we might have been the best of friends,
I settled for this song instead,
and it just keeps running through my head:
I will only let you down,
I will only let you down, down, down..
but if you call me when I eat,
then you would wake me when I sleep,
and I don't need that kind of stress,
I barely put up with myself ,
why would I ask you to as well?
it's better if I just confess
that I will only let you down..
..it's not coming down
I will only let you down
trust me when I say
that I will only let you down, down, down...
