​Rock N' Roll Hero

This song is by Caroline's Spine.

By the light of a desk lamp,
I sat with my paper and crayons
Trying to draw the things I saw in my head

And by the sound of the crickets
Through windows of darkness
I'd try to fit the moon in my mouth

Sometimes when I'm alone
And out of view of my own
I pretend I'm someone else
Taking a look at myself

I wonder whatI'll think then
And I hope I'll be O.K.
And I finally reach the day

When everybody sings my song...
When everybody sings my song...
When I'll show you my soul...

By the skin of my teeth
I got a break around seventeen
Suddenly everyone is acting so differently to me

And by the bus I call my home
I've seen more miles than I'll ever know
Trying to be some kind of rock n' roll hero

Sometimes when I'm alone
And out of view of my own
I pretend I'm someone else
Taking a look at myself

And I know I'm still thinking
And I know I feel O.K.
Now that I've reached the day...

And everybody's singin' my song...
And everybody's singin' my song...
And I show you my soul...

By the clock I live,
Thought I had so much more to give
It all came to an end somehow

But I made it the best I can
Even became a family man
Nothing but gold records on my wall

Sometimes when I'm alone
And out of view of my ow n
I pretend I'm someone else
Take a look back at myself

And I wonder what I was thinking
And although it turned out O.K.
I will always miss the day...

When everybody sang my song...
When everybody sang my song...
When I showed you my soul...
