In my dreams I am your hero.
In my dreams there is a man, he has a gun, and he is looking to take your life.
I’d like to say I would take the bullet for you. I’d like to say that a lot.
In my dreams your are cradling me in your arms, blood on your pretty dress, my body going lifeless.
In your dreams I am your hero.
I wake up, late night sleep plastered on my lips.
The house is dark as I stumble into the kitchen for a drink of water.
The dishwasher blinks clean.
I could empty it for you, make your life a little easier.
I just go back to bed, pretend I never saw it.
You empty it in the morning.
Yes, only in my dreams I am your hero.
