If heartaches brought fame
In love's crazy game
I’d be a legend in my time

If they gave gold statuettes
For tears and regrets
I’d be a legend in my time

But they don’t give awards
And there’s no praise or fame
For a heart that’s been broken
Over love that’s in vain

If loneliness meant world acclaim
There everyone would call my name
I’d be a legend in my time

If loneliness meant world acclaim
There everyone would know my name
I’d be a legend in my time
