I thought I'd be a hero, With sword and armor clashing
Looking semi dashing, A shield within my grip
Or else I'd be a Viking, live a life of daring
While smelling like a herring, upon a Viking ship.
I'd sail away, I'd see the world, I'd reach the farthest reaches
I'd feel the wind, I'd taste the salt and sea.
And maybe storm some beaches.
That's who I'd be. That's who I'd be.
I dreamed I'd be a poet, Write a different story,
One that told of glory, and wiped away the lies
And to the skies I'd throw it, the stars would do the telling
The moon would help with spelling, and night would dot the 'I's
I'd write my verse, Recite my joke, it'd fit in perfect timing.
I'd share my heart, confess the things I learn, and do it all while rhyming.
But then we learn. But then we learn.
And Ogre always hides, an Ogre's fate is known
And Ogre always stays in the dark and all alone
So yes I'd be a hero and if my wish was granted
My life would be enchanted, or so the stories say.
Of course I'd be a hero, and I would scale a tower
And save a hot-house flower, and carry her away
But standing guard there'd be a beast, I'd somehow over whelm it,
I'd get the girl, I'd take my breath, and I'd remove my helmet.
We'd stand and stare, we'd speak of love, we'd feel the stars ascending
We'd share a kiss, I'd find my destiny
I'd have a hero's ending, a perfect happy ending.
That's how it would be
A big bright beautiful world
But not for me.
An ogre always hides. An ogres fate is know. An ogre always stays
In the dark and all alone
(All at the same time)
So yes i'd be a hero, and if my wish was granted my life would be enchanted or so the stories say.
Of course I;d be a hero and I would scale a tower to save a
haukhouse flowerand carry her away!
There are rules and there are strictures. I belive the storie books i read by candle light
Don't let me go, Don't let me go, Don't let me go
A perfect happy ending, thats how.... it.. should be!
