Paramore - Idle Worship Lyrics




Standing here like I'm supposed to say something
Don't hold your breath, I never said I'd save you, honey
And I don't want your money
If I was you I'd run from me or rip me open
You'll see you're not the only one who's hopeless
Be sure to put your faith in something more
I'm just a girl and you're not as alone as you feel
We all got problems, don't we?
We all need heroes, don't we?
But rest assured there's not a single person here who's worthy

Don't let me let you down

Hey, baby I'm not your superhuman
And if that's what you want
I hate to let you down
I got your hopes up
Now I got you hoping
But I'm gonna be the one to let you down

Oh, it's such a long and awful lonely fall
Down from this pedestal that you keep putting me on
What if I fall on my face?
What if I make a mistake?
If it's okay a little grace would be appreciated
Remember how we used to like ourselves?
What little light that's left, we need to keep it sacred
I know that you're afraid to let all the dark escape you
But we could let the light illuminate these hopeless places

Just let me let you down

Hey, baby I'm not your superhuman
And if that's what you want
I hate to let you down
I got your hopes up
Now I got you hoping
But I'm gonna be the one to let you down

Oh, no, I ain't your hero
You're wasting all your faith on me
Oh, no, I know where this goes
Think it's safe to say your savior doesn't look a thing like me

Don't let me let you down

Hey, baby I'm not your superhuman
And if that's what you want
I hate to let you down
I got your hopes up
Now I got you hoping
But I'm gonna be the one to let you down

Hey, baby I'm not your superhuman
And if that's what you want
I hate to let you down
I got your hopes up
Now I got you hoping
But I'm gonna be the one to let you down

Paramore Idle Worship Comments
  1. Xquavius Ellison

    I almost forgot that i did a lame cover of this song lol.
    https://youtu.be/XZqjaqeO3oo

  2. Dark Files - Arquivos Sombrios - OFFICIAL

    PARAMORE desde de 1990 até 2023 !!!!!!!!!! 😈😍

  3. Dark Files - Arquivos Sombrios - OFFICIAL

    2023 ??????

  4. Emilia Caraline

    wow. this song represents a lot of pain.

  5. Ultraguy678

    I get chills when all the music cuts out at 1:31 and it's just her vocals

  6. Biggus Dickus

    Captain Obvious and the gang in the comments section :D

  7. Kody Cards

    That not but

  8. Bildam1

    I fucking hate that fucking song.

  9. Rachel Owen

    This will be on my phone on repeat for days!

  10. jk Elle

    My ex boyfriend makes me his Manic pixie dream girl and that bitch I'm gonna send this song to him.

  11. Julia May

    The reason why i've always considered Hayley an inspiration is because she's not perfect. Because somehow i found her struggles relatable. But i was always concerned about exactly this, because i know how it feels when people rely on you with so high expectations (my family used to do this to me until i had a breakdown).
    I guess she found a way to express it. This album is really interesting.

  12. Fantasize Reality

    Okay I get what she means but I can’t help but look up to her. She inspires me I don’t mean to put her up like that. Idk

    Nbhjjmbhhn Sksldkemdj

    She’s not saying to not look up to her. She’s saying you need to realise she’s human too and isn’t perfect.

  13. Bruna Vasconcelos

    Is it my autobiography?

  14. Frank Eliams Acosta Herrera

    Me pica el Toto

  15. Probably Nicole

    I would like this song 400000000x if I could

  16. thatguynamedblaze

    Enya got me here.

    thatguynamedblaze

    iTeacupPanda she used it one of her vids

    iTeacupPanda

    @thatguynamedblaze Enya the musician? The woman who lives in a castle? That's kind of hilarious to envision her as a Paramore fan ha

    thatguynamedblaze

    iTeacupPanda Lol no, no, Enya as in Enjajaja the YouTuber. she's a comedian.

    iTeacupPanda

    @thatguynamedblaze Oh, never heard of her.

    thatguynamedblaze

    @iTeacupPanda watch her.

  17. Elijah Delaney

    I guess 577 people let Hayley let them down.

  18. Sydney Edington

    You're basically bleeding.

  19. Daniella S.

    I wonder if this song is also about religious people who judge her for moving away from Christian music ... I feel like the reference to “no one here is worthy” and “a little grace would be appreciated” and then that line about keeping the light sacred ... those seem like references to the religious pressure she grew up with to be a certain kind of person/artist ...

    iTeacupPanda

    . . . No it's literally in the lyrics. The lyrics aren't really clever or metaphors. They're literally blunt, simple, specific.


    People put people in bands they love super high on pedestals and told " This saved my life " and put a lot of pressure on people like her but she is just a girl.

    Vega is not interesting

    Hayley Williams is Christian

  20. Probably Nicole

    God, her voice in this song is so fucking amazing

  21. Pablo Orellana

    🐚🎩🐚🐚🐚

  22. bicce

    ok but this is my favorite song off of the album

  23. matiletoart introspección.

    Desde que salio este album. Me imagino el futuro de paramore. Necesito saber que caminos afrontara paramore. Instagram//@odaproducciones

  24. Bexley Dale

    by far the best song pretty much ever

  25. Cousnouf

    Fan of all the albums they did and this one is one of their best.. I couldn't bet a dollar on that but damn it's really incredibly good!

  26. IC3 CL0UD

    Dont believe in me. I’ll probably dissapoint

  27. bluesneakers

    The arrangement of the song, the music & her vocals. They did that!

  28. John Daniel Guinto

    Just came here to see if anyone hears the intro tune similar to Hamsterball.. Or its just me.. Lol

  29. Alejandro

    So... Hayley is not my heroe?

  30. Jason Smalls

  31. Caleb Groncki

    She reminds me of my dad. mom too. its the hair.

    you guys rock, all we know is falling got me through a lot.

  32. Legend Panda

    I’m not your superhuman baby

  33. Jay Rino

    Well they can't blame the fans for seeing them as "savior"...

    bluesneakers

    I don’t think they’re blaming anyone. Just trying to encourage some self reflection.

  34. Sneaky Pete

    I thought by the title this was going to be another subliminal brainwashing track from a mainstream group, but I'm surprised that she is actually calling out the negative side of the celebrity paradigm and telling the truth that they aren't any different than us and shouldn't be idolized. Props Haley!

  35. A M A T E U R W A V E

    The bars.... Omg. 💪

  36. Jowie

    This is so good, and straight from the heart!! I love paramore and hella glad one of my favorite drummers of all time is back in his home <3

  37. Freakved

  38. Chester Oloya

  41. Marquita Govan

  45. Cassidyokay

    Authentic.

  46. WhosThatPanda

    Ooh she snapped

  47. Chey Jackson

    This song is great

  48. pedro lz

  56. Yair Martinez Segura

    I wanna see what a music video for this would look like

  57. mystiicaldraggo n

    This is my favorite off the whole album :’)

  58. Sk8er Crushcrushcrush

    PARAMORE MORE THAN U KNOW

  59. Psychotic Riot

    I like how they used, "Idle," instead of, "Idol." Because if someone is idling it means that they're not really doing anything. So by the phrase, "Idle Worship," it mean that's by worshiping them, we're actually worshipping nothing. They don't want to be worshipped as an Idol, so we need to stop treating them as if they're untouchable because they're human too. Not, "superhuman."

  60. NilTv

    If you make a mistake you learn about thatt !!! Its not okay XD I love Hayley She s my crush :) 😘

  61. TheyCall MeMoe

    Songs like this is the reason why I love Paramore so much 🎧🎼🎸

  62. anna mcatee

    as someone who’s literally been listening to them when i was 5, literally every album, every minor change in style has been done so well, after laughter is their best album and idle worship is easily their best song. (imo)

  63. S!r Alpha- Depression

    I would kill myself to a Paramore song

  64. Abigail Davidson

    I cant believe I haven’t listened to this before

  65. Yair Martinez Segura

    okay pero like i love this song

  66. Jasmine Michelle

    Wow I’m in love with this

  67. Marlous Napier

    To me, sounds like she's talking to a partner with an anxious attachment style...

  68. tcañete

    God, thank you for this band.

  69. Jennifer Adesina

    This speaks to me on a another level

  70. Pablo Orellana

    💜💜💜💜

  71. Brooke Renee Ford

    Wow. I love the level of openness in this song and the whole album, really. Thank you Paramore.

  72. Betamethasone Valerate

    Casually scrolling the comments and realized that most of Paramore's fans are intellectuals that are not afraid to narrate their sentiments/views about the song. And I think that all of those comments are making sense and all of them matches the theme of the song.

  73. Obvious Nuggies

    You guys ever just have to go on a paramore hype?

  74. Myrian Foxy

    I go crazy dancing to this in my kitchen early in the morning before anyone wakes up LOL

  75. Deathsoulx25x

    sell out apology?

    Whomst Am I

    Missed the point by about a m i l e

    never let this go

    apology for what?

  76. Christoph Quinn

    *is this song positive or what?*

    never let this go

    actually no

  77. Antonio

    only paramore would make a song dragging their fans LMFAOOO. i love them.

  78. Emma C

    it makes me mad how underrated this album is, but then again maybe its a good thing not everyone is on the bandwagon

  79. Euanne Mandanas II

    I CAME HERE BECAUSE OF ENJAJAJA


    (but in all seriousness this song is so fucking dope.)

  80. Yelya

    The lyrics make my heart sting.

    I think most of us don't want them to be superhuman or perfect. As for me, I'm in love with their achievements + imperfections conjointly, so somehow Paramore is never going to let me down. All of us have weaknesses and this band baring theirs is what makes them so relatable. The way they deal with their own problems gives me strength.

    All in all, I can't get over what a bop this song is. I'm more in love.

  81. AMARTHESTAR

    enjajaja

  82. ekuchsbdyshx dhzu7dhdhx

    This sounds like a FIFA song lol

  83. c !

    I wish I was never born

  84. Gilang Zira

    I like the way this song makes me fly because of the beat and fall to the ground because of the lyrics at the same time.

  85. Pablo Orellana

    P A R A L E S S 7

  86. D. Rodriguez

    I love this song!!!!

  87. paulojose maia

    Mas que música top . A melhor parte é o refrão !!

  88. Anjelynn Pydiah

    THIS SONG SPEAKS TO ME

    yee yee

    Which is the point

  89. Weider Dias

    EU AMO TANTO ESSA MÚSICA

  90. Eric Otto

    Beautiful chorus, powerful message

  91. shelsy :

    Enjajaja anyone? 🤠

  92. Insomnus_

    Goddamn she's good......too good

  93. Syd

    This is definitely one of paramore’s most well written songs. The lyrics are outstanding and powerful.

  94. Lemon Birdo

    Christian message :3

  95. Xquavius Ellison

    I did a cover of this song. Eh it was fun?...😆
