Track Name: Waiting For A Hero
Scarlet rose and silver thorn
Grow around the tower where she was born
Creeping up the sunlit walls, shadowing the lonely halls
And covering the solitary door

And it's there a home she keeps
Held in thrall by spell and sorcery
She will never taste the sun, or wander where the waters run
Until her true love comes to set her free

Through a thousand other heroes
Past an endless, faceless wall
She is watching through the window
For the only face that matters at all.

Now and then he hears her name
Now and then he wonders what she'd say
Then he laughs so hard it hurts--
Dreaming only makes it worse--
He wouldn't have the courage, anyway

Just another night alone
In a dirty tavern by the road
He drains a drink to drown the tears,
and thinks of all the wasted years
Since last he had a story of his own

And he doesn't even know
And he's never been a hero
No, he's never been a hero
Anywhere to anyone
But her

So he wanders home
And he sits alone
And he dreams of all the feats
That other men do
And she waits for him to come
'Til the candlelight burns low
And every night she says,
"Perhaps tomorrow."

Just another night apart
Just another pair of lonely hearts
Praying for the day to come
And the strength to be in love
Waiting for some kind of life to start

And you never even know
When she's waiting by the window
That it's your name she is whispering
That you've always been her hero

And she will never taste the sun
Or wander where the waters run
Until her true love comes
To set her free.
