Too Late The Hero

Lyrics

Too late the hero, it all comes to zero and I
I wish I could stop, and start it again
It?s the end of my movie, the bad guy beat me easy and I,
I wish I could stop, and start it again

It?s easy, to live in your imagination
if you can?t control the situation, you just cut, and start it again
It?s easy, to live in your imagination
If you have to make an alteration, you just cut, and start it again

How I wish I could live on the silver screen
Like the stars in the movie magazines
With a happy ending as the final scene

Too late the hero, it all comes to zero and I,
I wish I could stop, and start it again
It?s the end of my movie, the bad guy beat me easy and I,
I wish I could stop, and start it again

It?s easy, the villains always wear black
They see your guns and turn back, it only happens in the movies
It?s easy, the heroes always wear white
The ladies fall at first sight, it only happens in the movies

As the Viking ship drifts out to the sea
the black sail bursts into fire
I turn to kiss the princess, I have to pacify her
The arrows fall, the sky is red
The music gets higher and higher

The battle?s done, I?m on way home
A hero?s welcome on the shore
Single handed, all by myself I?ve just won the war
It was nothing, really
