Verse 1:
Spent years watching you
When I grew up I wanted to do what you do
You were the stars on the tv screen
You were the top of the music scene
I bought your songs on tape cassettes
I watched your gigs on vhs
I had your posters on my wall
I didn't know you were headed for a fall

You have fallen from grace
So wipe that smirk off your face
It'll be no disgrace
But you won't find a new hiding place

Verse 2:
They say you shouldn’t meet those you idolise
There are things you didn’t realise
They may not turn out to be what they seemed
When you watched them on your tv screen
Some stars were meant to fall
When they put themselves above it all
After all they’re just like you and me
They’re not the gods we make them out to be
