I don’t want to love an idol
I don’t want to love a star
I don’t want to love someone
I can only see from afar.

I want to love someone near
I want to love someone who can hear

I don’t want to love an idol
But I am so I fear
Nothing good can come of this
Only loneliness and tear

As dawn goes to daylight
And daylight to dusk
So life enters twilight
And love endures to dust

I don’t want to love an idol
Whom nothing can compare
I don’t want to love someone
And leave this work in despair
