You told me that I was like an angel
Told me I was fit to wear a crown
So that you could get a thrill
You put me on a pedestal
And then you let me down, let me down

You told me that I'd be wearin' diamonds
I would have the smartest car in town
Made me think that I'm the top
And then you let the ladder drop
You know you let me down, let me down

I walked upon a rainbow
I clung onto a star
You had me up in heaven
That's why I had to toil so far

I was even lookin' for a cottage
I was measured for a weddin' gown
That how I got cynical
You put me on a pinnacle
And then you let me down, let me down
How you let me down

Songwriters
POWELL, TEDDY / SAMUELS, WALTER G. / WHITCUP, LEONARD
