lyrics

How dare I wander into the woods
with no regard for the beast that awaits me.
How dare I convince myself that I could
welcome your smile so, and think you could wake me.

I was wrong, and way too bold.

My lips are stone and my mind is stone,
so pick up your heart. It’s time you went home.
I’m a fallen hero.

How dare I dive in the water here
with no regard for the heat that escaped me.
How dare I strip off the worst of fears.
Feeling your heart’s warmth, I let you embrace me.

I was wrong. I’m still stone cold.

My lips are stone and my mind is stone,
so pick up your heart. It’s time you went home.
I’m sorry I let you fall right through my hands.
I’m only a statue—you must understand—of a fallen hero.
I’m a fallen hero.

Wipe away the dust from the plaque at my feet:
“HE LIVED FOR LOVE. HE DIED FOR LOVE.
MAY HIS LOVE REST IN PEACE”

My lips are stone and my mind is stone,
so pack up your heart and just leave me alone.
A marble statue forever I’ll stay.
I fought for my love and I suffered the fate
of a fallen hero.
