Daan – Icon

if you try to be an icon then the icon becomes you
if you try to be a model it’ll catwalk over you
if you try to walk in street shoes then these shoes will bend you to
if you try to be a kid again the kid will kidnap you

you know it’s true
the guy you know well that’s just you
and there is nothing you can do
just like a door you can get trough
when there’s no one left to fool
don’t go and drown in that old pool
don’t kid yourself

so don’t try to be an icon come the I inside of you
that picture you’ve been painting doesn’t look a thing like you
i’ll agree that it’s a nice try but when your paint is dry
we’re all just little icons to be you in supereye

you know it’s true
the guy you know well that’s just you
and there is nothing you can do
just like a door you can get trough
when there’s no one left to fool
don’t go and drown in that old pool
don’t kid yourself

solo

i need someone to show me just what i threw away
i need a pretty angel to present it on a tray
you never liked the icon said that guy looked pretty strange
well you never tried to change me and that’s how i couldn’t change

you know it’s true
the guy you know well that’s just you
and there is nothing you can do
just like a door you can’t get trough
when there’s no one left to fool
don’t go and drown in that old pool
don’t kid yourself

when there’s no one left to fool
don’t go and drown in that old pool
don’t kid yourself
