Hero

Tell me a story please
And make it an adventure
Where the bad guys are easy to spot
And the hero is a lost girl
Finding her courage and her way

Before you get started, wait
I know how it should end
She isn’t walking away into the dark
With an explosion at her back
But home with friends and love

I don’t care if there’s sword fights
Or lovers left behind to grieve
I just want her to win this time
To save the world and defeat evil
And know she’s been the hero all along
