Lyrics Who I'd Be

I guess 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 and 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
Or I could be a poet and write a different story
One that tells of glory and wipes away the lies
Into 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 a verse recite a joke
With wit and perfect timing
I'd share my heart confess the things
I yearn and do it all while rhyming
But we all learn but we all learn
An 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 overwhelm it
I'd get the girl
I'd take a 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 ogre's fate is known
An ogre always stays
An ogre always stays in the dark and all alone
All alone
All alone so yes I'd be a hero can we give
And if my wish was granted
'Cos there are rules oh my life wound be enchanted and there are strictures
Or so the stories say you'll be the perfect hero save
I believe the story books I read
The girl and you'll need by candle light
A perfect happy ending
A perfect happy ending that's how it should be that's how it should be
