Image of Yourself Lyrics

by Adam And The Ants

You're livin' up to someone's image of yourself
Crawlin' like a helpless infant on the floor
You turn down bread for the want of a steak
What's worth wakin' up in a cold sweat for?

You know it could have been good and it could have been fine
You know you're livin' up to someone's image of yourself

Devastated, they don't really give a damn
As you wait around for someone to do it all for you
You know they gonna make you pay through the nose
On the very rare occasions that they do

The more innocent you are the more you will know
You say you're livin' up to someone's image of yourself
Yeah, you're livin' up to someone's image of yourself
You're livin' up to someone's image of yourself

Oh, you don't need opinion
Don't need a mirror
Believe that you're enough
And you tapped at my shoulder
Captured my heart
I thought your name was love
Thought your name was love

You don't need opinion
Don't need a mirror
Believe that you're enough
And you tapped at my shoulder
Captured my heart
I thought your name was love
Thought your name was love

It's just an image of yourself
Just an image of yourself
It's just an image of yourself
