Built upon a loose foundation
I was once your golden girl
And for your love and adoration
I gave my life to be your world.

Suddenly the magic ended,
Abandoned for the latest trend.
Once your perfect dream, your IDOL,
Evanescent love was spent.

Like an IDOL, used and wasted.
Like an IDOL, abused and hated,
You burned my image down,
Crushed me to the ground.
I was once your IDOL, now cast down.

Like an IDOL, hope was shattered.
Like an IDOL, I never mattered.
You left me on my own,
A girl without a home.
I was once your IDOL, your own,
But now I’m all alone.

Dreams are made and hearts are broken
With your ever-changing whim,
And like an object, fervor’s token
Once adored, the flame grows dim.

Carnal treasures wrapped in your worship.
What happened to our love affair?
Tossed aside in transitory
Love, you left without a care.


Like an IDOL, used and wasted.
Like an IDOL, abused and hated,
You burned my image down,
Crushed me to the ground.
I was once your IDOL, now cast down.

Like an IDOL, hope was shattered.
Like an IDOL, I never mattered.
You left me on my own,
A girl without a home.
I was once your IDOL, your own,
But now I’m all alone.

You cut me to the bone,
And I can’t break your heart of stone.

Like an IDOL, used and wasted.
Like an IDOL, abused and hated,
You burned my image down,
Crushed me to the ground.
I was once your IDOL, now cast down.

Like an IDOL, hope was shattered.
Like an IDOL, I never mattered.
You left me on my own,
A girl without a home.
I was once your IDOL, your own,
But now I’m all alone
