[Intro]
Am

[Verse]
       Am
if you try to be an icon
         F
then the icon becomes you
       C
if you try to be a model
      E
it'll catwalk over you
       Am
if you try to walk in straight shoes
           F
then these shoes will bend you too
       C
if you try to be a kid again
    E
the kid will kidnap you

[Chorus]
              C
you know it's true
            E                     Am
the guy you know well that's just you
             F               C
and there is nothing you can do
            E                  Am
just like a door you can't get through
              F
when there is no-one left to fool
             E
don't go and drown in that old pool
              Am
don't kid yourself

[Verse]
so don't try to be an icon
con the i inside of you
that picture you've been painting
doesn't look a thing like you
i'll agree that it's a nice try
but when your paint is dry
we are all just little icons
super you and super i

[Refrain]
you know it's true...
 
[Solo]

[Verse]
i need someone to show me
just what i threw away
i need a pretty angel
to present it on a tray
you've never liked the icon
said that guy looked pretty strange
but you've never tried to change me
and that's how came to change

[Refrain]
              C
you know it's true
            E                     Am
the guy you know well that's just you
             F               C
and there is nothing you can do
            E                  Am
just like a door you can't get through
              F
when there is no-one left to fool
             E
don't go and drown in that old pool
              Am
don't kid yourself

              F
when there is no-one left to fool
             E
don't go and drown in that old pool
              Am
don't kid yourself
