I never promised you a ray of light
I never promised there'd be sunshine everyday
I'll give you everything I have, the good, the bad
Why do you put me on a pedestal?
I'm so up high that I can't see the ground below
So help me down you've got it wrong, I don't belong there

Chorus
One thing is clear
I wear a halo
I wear a halo when you look at me
But standing from here, you wouldn't say so
You wouldn't say so, if you were me
And I, I just wanna love you
Oh oh I, I just wanna love you

I always said that I would make mistakes
I'm only human, and that's my saving grace
I fall as hard as I try
So don't be blinded
See me as I really am
I have flaws and sometimes I even sin
So pull me from that pedestal
I don't belong there

Chorus
One thing is clear
I wear a halo
I wear a halo when you look at me
But standing from here, you wouldn't say so
You wouldn't say so, if you were me
And I, I just wanna love you
Oh oh I, I just wanna love you

Why you think that you know me
But in your eyes
I am something above you
It's only in your mind
Only in your mind
I wear a
I wear a
I wear a halo

One thing is clear
I wear a halo
I wear a halo when you look at me
But standing from here, you wouldn't say so
You wouldn't say so, if you were me
And I, I just wanna love you
Oh oh I, I just wanna love you
(I just wanna love you)

Hey, a-ha-ha halo (repeat and fade)

    The meaning I get is this:
    You think I'm this great person, but I'm not. I just want to love you, so can you please just see for what I really am?
