Lyrics

Don't Meet Your Heroes

Could it really be that long ago? Was it love, or just a phase?

the whole world was a tempest then, not so unlike these days

that night she put a record on, a tear came to her eye

we held each other through the gale and played Late For The Sky.

In the storm clouds there around us, had I seen a silver lining?

a song had touched my heart and stirred my soul

And in the morning when I woke the sun was brightly shining

but she'd moved on in silence, toward her unspoken goal

They say don't meet your heroes, that they play by different rules

but of this one thing I know you can be sure

Though some of them are dreamers, and some of them are fools

the only ones that matter are the ones whose hearts are pure

The brightest stars are mysteries; they share their sacred glow

we feel a kindred spirit, though its one we'll never know

we long to reach, to touch; to thank; to hear old songs anew

but of us there are too many, and their days with us so few

They say don't meet your heroes and I can't prove they're wrong

but there's one thing of which you can be sure

that in the spring I'll find a way to stay a little longer

and spend more time with my hero's treasured songs.

Yes, in the spring I'll find a way to stay just a little bit longer

and spend more time with my hero's treasured songs.
