you seem afraid, unable to settle your tide

but not enough to satisfy your pride

since all your dark motives are still locked inside

over there you stand, aloof from those who offer you a hand

they may sound courteous to others

still you dismiss it as a plan

a mere pedistal to keep with their demand

When it's out of your control

please don't forget about me

even if we've fallen apart

it's no excuse to shun me

i dont wanna see my star fall (4x)

you've got it made

friends are by your side, the whole world's at your feet

idolized with everyone in your heat

something like this tells me, you're in too deep

adulation sells, it makes you feel much bigger than you are

your credibility extends quite far

so much so that disenchantment is expected on your part

and when you lose control

don't scrape my head against against the floor

if we don't see eye to eye, then what the hell are we fighting for?

i dont wanna see my star fall

(perhaps that love once deemed elusive ain't so hard to find)

i dont wanna see my star, fall

(repeat chorus)
