"Popular" as written by Steve Stevens and Billy Idol....
All night I lie alone, embrace the cold, the darkest shadow.
You’ll never be good enough, you’re just a failure to us.
Take a good look at yourself. Where will you go?
I know that this is not a place where I can live and grow, and call my home, I don’t ever want to be unknown.
I wo n’t become your average, no. I walk away, I don’t have to stay.
I can find another way to get up. I can find another way to get out of here.
Tonight I’ll make a pact that I will be among the last to let my home take away my control,
leave me standing all alone. And I will stand on my own two feet with all I have, all I can be.
And I’ll shine brighter than all of you, and I’ll go on.
