The Hero

I’m not the hero of your story
especially now we know it’s true
fate has sealed all signs of glory
time has sealed all paths to you

I’m not the hero here to save you
I’ve broken sword and taken wounds
from here on out there’s nothing for me
I’ve nothing heroic left to do


Listen to their narrative
they’ll paint me in black and white
my love is just a grocery list
that you wrote out in your mind

Listen to their narrative
they’ll turn me into a thief
that stole away your happiness
you were right to take your leave

Listen to their narrative
just the voices in your head
they’ll make you doubt decisions made
and vows and promises said
