I was a princess crying in a dungeon Shackles tied to my feet I feared the dragon and all his allies He had sent to capture me I hung my head Defeated Ooh who would rescue me? Ooh a man riding a donkey Every night was cold and dark I couldn’t see a thing at all Except for a sliver of the crescent moon That shone through a crack in the wall And I laid my head there Retreated Ooh who would love me? Ooh a man riding a donkey Then one morning I awoke To the sound of a breaking chain I peeked through the crack in the wall At the forest with the narrow lane And I raised my head Excited! Ooh he came to rescue me Ooh a man riding a donkey Ooh he came to love me Ooh a man riding a donkey.
Hero 02:35
In my imagination I find a situation Where he is surrendering And we all just start to sing Hero hero 2x It keeps coming back to this Makes me think that we have missed What he was trying to say When we took his life away Hero hero 2x What are we gonna say What are we gonna do When we look into those eyes What are we gonna pray Who will we run to When we look into those eyes The only thing I conclude There is nothing to include Everything was satisfied On the day that we all cried He's a hero hero Yeah he's a hero hero 2x He's a hero I know I know That he's a hero hero Yeah he's a hero hero He's a hero
Blind Guide 03:46
You're like a boat that cannot float You're like a plane that cannot fly You're like a cloud stuck in the sky There's more to you than meets the eye You're a blind guide 2x You're not just short-sighted You can't see at all Yeah you trip I fall 4x You stumble over signs You won't heed his call Yeah you trip I fall 4x I'm like a wheel that cannot spin In this race I cannot win I'm someone else beneath my skin If I could see I'd look within but I'm a blind guide 2x I'm not just short-sighted I can't see at all! Yeah I trip you fall 4x I stumble over signs I won't heed his call Yeah I trip you fall 4x Tell me where this grace increased when my walk began I don't understand Just who I am and why I'm scared and I'm broken Complacent where he has spoken We're not just short-sighted we can't see at all Yeah we trip we fall 4x We stumble over signs we won't heed his call Yeah we trip we fall 4x
I don’t need witches to Sweep my mind with their brooms I don’t need wizards’ advice On how I should live my life I don’t need fortune tellers Who predict futures I’ve already decided who I’m going to be He’ll cast his magic spell on me Because I am so sad I'm sick I'm hungry I will I will I will be I will be The magician’s assistant And no one can stop me now Have you seen lightning swords Crumble in his hands Have you seen waves break Under his commands? His dew drops gently upon A sticky spider’s web It sparkles and it glistens in the starlight I AM THAT I AM, …..
It’s 4 am The phone is ringing You’re rambling again Just tell me what you need I don’t need a fickle friend 2x When I see you around You're never alone I try to talk to you You smile and look away I don’t need a fickle friend 2x I need a friend who will stick around He will listen to every sound Of my heart break when I’m down He’ll pick me up off the ground He’ll never leave me As the seasons change They remind me of you Waiting for your hellos Waiting for your goodbyes I don’t need a fickle friend 2x
