"Idol" as written by and Ian Alec Harvey/gosein Dench....
I can see it, I can feel it
Rushing in my veins
I don't like it, I don't hide it
See it in my face

But I....don't want, to wait...
For I....have lost, my faith....
Where can I find myself an idol
Somebody that I can look up to

Be big enough to hold me close in their minds
And never let me down
And all these stupid conversations
That always seem to lead nowhere

They're going round and round and round in my head
And they'll be back again, they're coming back again
Its not fair, I still care now
Were always alone

Honesty and modesty will never find my home
But I... will never say....
When I ....have lost my way.....
Why can't I find myself an idol

Somebody that I can look up to
Be big enough to hold me close in their minds
And never let me down
And all these stupid conversations

That always seem to lead to nowhere
They're going round and round and round in my head
And they'll be back again, they're coming back again
Can't take it, can't take (don't throw it away)

Can't take it, can't take it, their coming back again
Can't take it, can't take it (don't throw it away away away)
(Don't throw it away)
Can't take it, can't take it (don't throw it away away away away)

    General CommentI can't believe no one has commented on this song. It's, in my opinion, the best song by Amanda Ghost.

    General CommentIt is. I love it.
    Basically I think it's about a person who does not believe in the idolization concept. We live once, and we live it our way, not through the footsteps of others.. for at the end of the day, we are independent, and the battle is btw ourselves. :)

    General CommentSuch a great dance record...but the words make me cry. I always thought it was about being lonely...not being able to find somebody who could "never let me down".
