Iconic

Album: Rebel Heart (2015)
  • Yeah

    If you try to fuck it up again
    Destiny will choose you in the end
    If you don't make the choice
    And you don't use your voice
    Someone else will speak for you instead
    What you want is just within your reach
    But you gotta practice what you preach
    If you use sweat and tears
    And overcome your fears
    Never let the fire inside you leave

    I can, Icon, two letters apart
    One step, away, of being lost in the dark
    Just shine your light like a beautiful star
    Show the world who you are
    Who you are

    Yeah
    There's another part of you no one sees
    There's a burning fire that's underneath
    Baby don't you know you were meant to be
    Born to be
    Meant to be
    Iconic

    Tell me I'm no good and I'll be great
    Say I have to fight and I can't wait
    Standing in the wings
    A butterfly that stings
    I will rise above cause it's my fate

    I can, Icon, two letters apart
    One step, away, of being lost in the dark
    Just shine your light like a beautiful star
    Show the world who you are
    Who you are

    Yeah
    There's another part of you no one sees
    There's a burning fire that's underneath
    Baby don't you know you were meant to be
    Born to be
    Meant to be
    Iconic

    Born to be a superstar
    That's exactly what you are
    Born to be a superstar
    That's exactly what you are

    Alright
    Firefly chain, wanna catch you
    Wanna put you in a net for their light glow
    Yellow brick high way, paparazzi pile-up on the high road
    They just turned the sun into an idol
    They just wanna see how high the sky go
    Just to find how it feel to fall bad
    Madonna said I remind her of Michael
    Steady blowing up my head, blowing up my head
    Put it on your wall
    Put me in the school book, put me in the laws
    Put me in a descant in the Synagogue
    Firefly gold, wanna catch ya
    Wanna catch you when your lights go dim
    Wanna turn you to a letter in their logo
    Wanna stick you in a jar with a pen
    You're a icon

    I can, Icon, two letters apart
    One step, away, of being lost in the dark
    Just shine your light like a beautiful star
    Show the world who you are
    Who you are

    Yeah
    There's another part of you no one sees
    There's a burning fire that's underneath
    Baby don't you know you were meant to be
    Born to be
    Meant to be
