​Hero/Heroine

This song is by Freakwater and appears on the album Old Paint (1995).

You are my hero, you are my heroine

I followed your dusty trail back to where this all began

Back to the time before I knew I was a fool

To the night I saw my star like a flashing jewel

And the way I chose was not my own invention

But it was ignorance more than pretension

You are my hero, you are my heroine

I followed you way downtown to steal your fountain pen

But there were myths and there were facts which I mistook

And everyone who gets drunk will not write a good book

But the words I spoke, the stories I was making

Were for the love of you not for the love of faking

You are my hero, you are my heroine

Would you dig a grave I might be buried in

I lean my back against the stove and drink a beer

The song you're singing inside my head just like you were here

And your hat's pulled down so far it hides your eyes

Just like a dust storm hit the Oklahoma skies

You are my hero, you are my heroine
