Icon For Hire – Conversation With A Rockstar lyrics

[Verse 1:]
You're everything I wanna be,
But that's not true at all.
I've held you high,
I've built a lie.
You're nothing like you used to be,
And that's not right at all.
You've given in,
You've let them win.

[Pre-Chorus 1:]
And I'm sorry that these words
Are coming out of my mouth,
But I don't wanna be like you.
I'm sorry that I'm just now figuring out.

[Chorus 1:]
Someone else can save the world.
I won't sell my soul for this.
I wasn't meant to make them happy,
I wasn't meant to make them money.
Someone else can let it all go,
Trade themselves for one more show.
But I wasn't meant to throw myself away,
For one meager shot at fame.

[Verse 2:]
I thought you could think for yourself,
And fight for what you loved.
They're using you,
You know they do.
And I don't think I want to take,
The same road that you're on.
It can't be worth,
The way you hurt.

[Pre-Chorus 2:]
And I'm sorry that these words
Are coming out of my mouth,
But I don't wanna be like you.
I'm sorry that I'm just now figuring out.

[Chorus 2:]
Someone else can save the world.
I won't sell my soul for this.
I wasn't meant to make them happy,
I wasn't meant to make them money.
Someone else can let it all go,
Trade themselves for one more show.
But I wasn't meant to throw myself away,
For one meager shot at fame.

[Bridge:]
Do you even remember why you wanted to get
This far in the first place?
Do you even remember why you wanted to be
A rock star in the first place?
Well, it's not too late.

[Chorus 3:]
'Cause Someone else can save the world.
Don't you sell your soul for this.
You weren't meant to make them happy,
You weren't meant to make them money.
'Cause Someone else can let it all go,
Trade themselves for one more show.
But you weren't meant to throw yourself away,
No we weren't meant to throw ourselves away,
For one meager shot at fame.
No, one meager shot at fame, fame, oh fame.
