Performed by fling on the EP "The View from the Valley," released 2000. Music by Kenley Young and fling. Lyrics by Kenley Young.



Love well, but not wisely.
Hate hard, but not blindly.
And let heroes learn the rest.
Sometimes I almost feel your fingers
Dancing on my skin like poison
Another damsel in her dress.

But must I slay the dragon first,
Or break some wicked curse,
Or retrieve some sacred sword,
Defend the fortunes of my lord,
Or is it enough for you to know that...

I'll break you out of that dull tower -
Find a castle to call ours
I am a poet. Hear me roar.
But even I can't well erase it.
I hope you haven't reached your place yet
Where words won't move you anymore.

But must I slay the dragon first,
Or break some wicked curse,
Or retrieve some sacred sword,
Defend the fortunes of my lord,
Or is it enough for you to know that...

What I'd give up to touch you,
What I'd give up to hold you,
To feel you near me again -
Because I still trace your design -
Your body pressed against mine.
My blood, it screams for your rain.

And the nights -
They make me so aware.
I wake up every half an hour
Half expecting you'll be there.
I'm always dashing to the rescue.
I've saved absolutely no one-
No one anywhere
