lyrics

Read a book about you today
You were young and strong and heroic
With the face of an angel, the heart of a child
You didn’t know it

And your legend it bled from my pen
While I studied you
And page after page, it began
And that’s never good, and then

You were gone
Replaced by another
Brilliant and tall and he’s always so sweet
Just a walk on in these volumes of my life
Marked by beauty’s pen
Again and again

It’s pretty funny or pretty sad
The credit I gave to ones so small
Who were just like extras though one time were stars
Lighting the dark sky

And I would have never believed
That page after page
You were barely worth the ink
The credit I gave, and then

You were gone
Replaced by another
Heart of gold and the world at his feet
Just a walk on in these volumes of my life
Marked by beauty’s pen
Again and again
Marked by beauty’s pen
Again and again

Read a book about you today
You were young and strong and heroic
With the face of an angel, the heart of a child
You didn’t know it
I didn’t know it
