Teenage Idol

It’s a long way back
It’s a heart attack
It’s a long way back
To you

You leave your home
Seeking sights unknown
Finally on your own
For a while

So this young man fights
Put his name up in lights
Let him sign away his life
For a song

Teenage Idol
Teenage Idol
You’re on a roll
Keep on going
Stay unbroken for us all

They bleed your wounds
For some rhymes and some tunes
And then all too soon
They’ll be gone

But the highs don’t stop
When the lights turn off
And you find that you’re not
Who you thought

Teenage Idol
Teenage Idol
You’re on a roll
Keep on going
Stay unbroken for us all

When the paydays slow
And your new friends go
And you find you don’t know
Which way to turn

It’s a long way back
It’s a heart attack
It’s a long way back
To you

Teenage Idol
Teenage Idol
You’re all alone
Keep on going
Stay unbroken for us all
