teenage icon lyrics – the vaccines

teenage icon

oh look at me so ordinary, no mystery, with no great capabilities,
but i could make out as if i had it but you know,
god i’m so obvious and i should let it go, oh i don’t know.

i’m no teenage icon,
i’m no frankie avalon,
i’m n*body’s hero.

preserved and shy, your average guy,
no piercing stare, just out of shape with messy hair,
but i always figured i was somebody who’d wait,
and now i’m guessing that my moment must be late cause i need it, oh

i’m no teenage icon,
i’m no frankie avalon,
i’m n*body’s hero.

i’m not magnetic or mythical,
i’m suburban and typical,
but i got it, i got it
i’m overrun with it all.

seductive charm a way with words so effortless
not leather clad or dangerous,
but i always did it like a real rebel would,
i had a photo where john lennon may have stood, or so i’m told.

i’m no teenage icon,
i’m no frankie avalon,
i’m n*body’s hero.
