Started out with the dreams
And the plans of a wise man
And ended up with the heartaches of a fool

As a boy I would walk through the valley
Gazed at the world all around
Made a vow that somehow I would find fame and fortune
I found it but look at me now

I had a sweetheart who would love me forever
Didn't need her, I would reign all alone
And look at me, I'm the king of cold lonely castle
The queen of my heart is gone

So get around me, you fools for a dollar
Listen to me, a lesson you'll learn
Well there's happiness and love sent from heaven above
And the fires of ambition will burn

Started out with the dreams
And the plans of a wise man
And ended up with the heartaches of a fool
