Other appearances[]



Duran Duran are:



I follow you I wait for you, you know there's no escape from me
You're more than wallpaper in my room
I write you letters and bring you gifts I'm going through all your trash
I love you so much I keep your cigarette butts

Now is the time to come out, come out of the shadows
No need to be scared you're gonna be so happy I built you a shrine
Now you can be my icon

I'm out on the edge there's no way back inside
All my friends are gone they didn't understand me
It makes so much sense there's no coincidence as you
and I alone here and I need you oh

How many hours have I stared at my face in the mirror
I get worried sometimes that the image will shatter
No need to be scared you're gonna be so happy I built you a shrine
Now you can be my icon
No need to be scared I built you a shrine now you can be my icon

I know this is real believe it we belong together
Whatever happens, you're gonna be with me forever
Be my icon you will be my icon, be my icon you will be my icon
Be my icon
