Icon lyrics

If I wasn't awake, I'd be dreaming
I took too many pills to be sleeping
And the memory of you keeps on creeping
Up my slippery spine all this evening
Take my hand in your hand like we're walking
In the pebbly sand and we're talking
Drive me up to the coast, lean by sea back
But I'm just in the room with the lights on
Oh oh ooh oh ooh oh
Every minute passes like an hour
When I'm just in the room with the lights on
And there's no one who knows I'm the icon
All that keeps me awake is the last line
And there's no one who knows I'm the icon

The first light of the night cuts the deepest
When I'm struggling keep my secrets
When all that we drink that's the cheapest
If I land you my kiss, please don't keep it
Oh oh ooh oh ooh oh
Every minute passes like an hour
When I'm just in the room with the lights on
And there's no one who knows I'm the icon
All that keeps me awake is the last line
And there's no one who knows I'm the icon

Keep the lights on for my sake
Keep the lights on for my sake
Close my eyes I see your face
Close my eyes I see your face
I just keep myself awake
I just keep myself awake
I don't want to feel this way
I don't want to feel this
Just in the room with the lights on
And there's no one who knows I'm the icon
All that keeps me awake is the last line
And there's no one who knows I'm the icon
