When I was a kid, I’d fly around and Peter would mention
Don’t be afraid to die, cause to die would be an awfully big adventure
One day I stopped believing, now my friends say they’re so bored of me
I used to be a real boy, with real plans, but now I’m just reality TV

I used to be your knight in shining armor, and I’d rescue you from hell
Lately I stare into the mirror and I say to myself

I’ve spent too many nights watching “How I Met Your Mother” alone
Now I’m searching for my yellow umbrella, hoping I’ll take her home
Maybe I just wanna be legendary
Yeah we all just wanna be legendary
ohh-oh

I’m done chasing actresses
I’m full of love and they’re all full of shit
And now I’m stumbling out the bar, one more fame monster story, I’ll be sick
One day I stopṗed believing, and all at once the magic had died
I just need to accept friends grow up, and lovers will lie
Oh I used to be James Dean, now it's celebrity rehab hell
I swear that I could be amazing, I just need a little help

I’ve spent too many nights watching “How I Met Your Mother” alone
Now I’m searching for my yellow umbrella, hoping I’ll take her home
Maybe I just wanna be legendary
Yeah we all just wanna be legendary
ohh-oh

Da-da-da-da-da-da-da-da-da-da
Da-da-da-da-da-da-da-da-da-da
Da-da-da-da-da-da-da-da-da-da
Da-da-da-da-da-da-da-da-da-da

I was your knight in shinning armor, and I’d rescue you from hell
I swear that I could be amazing I just need a little help
I was your knight in shinning armor, and I’d rescue you from hell
I swear that I could be amazing

I’ve spent too many nights watching “How I Met Your Mother” alone
Now I’m searching for my yellow umbrella, hoping I’ll take her home
Maybe I just want to be legendary
Yeah we all wanna be legendary to somebody
Yeah to somebody
oh-no

Da-da-da-da-da-da-da-da-da-da
Da-da-da-da-da-da-da-da-da-da
Da-da-da-da-da-da-da-da-da-da
Da-da-da-da-da-da-da-da-da-da
Don’t be afraid
