I don't want to be a hero,
I don't want to ever let you down,
No I don't want to let you down
I can try to take you higher,
But I don't want to wear your broken crown,
Ya know it brings me down

Don't think you'll ever understand me
I don't even understand me
Don't have the power to annoint you
And I don't want to disappoint
The fools no more
The fools no more

I couldn't answer all your questions,
And if your're lost
I couldn't find your way
I couldn't find your way
You know you have to face the music,
You change your tune
And don't know what to play,
So don't you run away

Everybody's talking crazy
Some think I am a dare
And I may be
I don't want to hear about it
Don't want to have to scream and shout at
The fools no more
The fools no more

So I don't want to be a hero,
Don't want to sit upon your crippled throne,
I've got a life of my own
I am not your destination,
Or a road that's gonna lead you home,
So baby please don't go

    Two people from two completely different worlds. He has a middle class (barely middle class) background. He's kinda like a person who does what he believes in. No matter what people say. Mostly misunderstood,and deemed a trouble maker. He uses his head, but follows his heart. It doesn't seem to bother him. As long as she understands him... She comes from a upper class family. One that wants something better for her. Even friends & acquaintances can't understand... But to them it doesn't matters...
