Legend


Raised amongst wolves
A lamb who could lead
Pecked ever so gently
by birds on land and by Sea
When you were conceived
God's Angel's willed please
They said let this child be a legend

Go run through the night
run through those hazy days
Scuttle sometimes
as rats through this maze
never bested
How you've been tested
contested
arrested
not bested
I've got eyes
I can see.

Take a bow to your legend
an impossible dynasty
Take a bow to your legend
an unstoppable destiny
Take a bow to your legend
an unshakable legacy
whatever you are now
whoever you might be
Take a bow to your legend
Have another bow it's free
To love's legend,
love's legend,
Love's delicacy


With the heart of the bear
eye of a hawk
nose of the hound
be awake and on ready
if ever a sound
Like a jokester
a beggar
a soldier
a man who could lead,
you go in for the kill
blend with the trees
like a legend love's legend
love's testimony

On legs large and strong
of the mightiest steed
Beneath sails firm and true
aloft swirling jet stream
Wherever you are now
whatever you might see
take a bow to your legend
take a bow it's on me
To your legend
love's legend
love's destiny

Still, I don't think
you could ever be
my magical mystery
that's why I pity you
for sure, for sure
but one time
won't you pity me
It's a pitiful epitome
of what our dynasty
our legacy
our destiny
our testimony
our delicacy
our pageantry could be

Take a bow to your legend
love's legend
An unshakable history


With a yellow hot core
burnin ever more and more to be
livin and dyin free
take a bow to your legend
love's legend
love's pageantry
Take a bow
have another a bow and you'll see
you're almost like a legend
love's legend
love's legend to me.
