"Be My Icon" as written by and Nick Rhodes Simon Le Bon....
I follow you, I wait for you
You know there's no escape from me
You're more than wallpaper in my room

I write you letters and bring you gifts
I'm going through all your trash
I love you so much
I keep your cigarette butts

Now is the time to come out
Come out of the shadows

No need to be scared
You're gonna be so happy
I built you a shrine
Now you can be my icon

I'm out on the edge
There's no way back inside
All my friends are gone
They didn't understand me

It makes so much sense
It's no coincidence
Just you and I alone here
And I need you
Oh

How many hours have I stared at my face in the mirror?
I get worried sometimes that the image will shatter

No need to be scared
You're gonna be so happy
I built you a shrine
Now you can be my icon
No need to be
Scared
I built you a shrine
Now you can be my icon

I know this is real
Believe it
We belong together
Whatever happens
You're gonna be with me forever

Be my icon
You will be my icon
Be my icon
You will be my icon

    General CommentThis song is about Us fans being Simon's "Icon" just as us fans use to make them all our pinup "icons" on our walls. This may also be about a mystical experience taht Simon has had, but I am Not sure. This is just my idea here. :D

    General CommentThis song's about a disorder-ish thing called voyeurism, is how I believe it's spelled.
    "I write you letters and bring you gifts
    I’m going through all your trash
    I love you so much
    I keep your cigarette butts."
    I also think my mom said that voyeuristic people sometimes go through their love's trash and just kinda...keep it, I guess. (: Awesome song.

    General CommentThis song is about stalking someone.
    And the part about "be my Icon" kind of shows the obsesion he has with this person.
