FALLEN ICON
Written by DOUGLAS & TUCKER / Copyright 1997 YUMMY POP TUNES (ASCAP)


YOU'RE JUST A SHADOW OF YOUR FORMER SELF
WHEN WE KNEW YOU BEFORE
YOU HAD SUCH POWER AND WEALTH
NOW IT'S GONE
YOU'RE JUST A DREAMER IN A DRIED-UP SHELL
WITH A FRANCHISE IN DEBT
AND BILL COLLECTORS FROM HELL
NOW YOU'RE DONE
WITH NOWHERE TO RUN

NOBODY LISTENS TO THE FALLEN ICON
FASHION WOKE UP
AND LEFT THE CHECK IN YOUR NAME
NOBODY CHERISHES THE FALLEN ICON
SOMEDAY YOU MIGHT FIND YOUR WAY
BACK TO THE STARS AGAIN

YOU'RE AN ILLUSION IN THE MODERN LAND
YOU USED TO BE KNOWN
BY WOMEN, CHILDREN AND MEN
NOW YOU'RE LOST
YOU'RE JUST A FOOTNOTE IN A HISTORY CLASS
CAUSE THE NATIONAL TABLOIDS
WIPED THEIR DIRT ON YOUR ASS
NOW YOU'RE DUST
WITH NO ONE TO TRUST

(CHORUS)

YOUR FIFTEEN MINUTES CAME AND WENT SO FAST
WHY DID YOU EVER THINK YOUR FAME WOULD LAST
LOOK AT THE BRIGHT SIDE
WITH ALL YOUR DOUBTS AND FEARS
YOU MIGHT COME BACK IN TEN OR TWENTY YEARS

(CHORUS)
