born hero

Now I think a lot 
You can say its my fault
But I end up hurt
And the pain each night burns

I wish I made the choices mine
But I let my taste thrive
Thrive in what seems now pride
Same thing that got me to this slide

Chasing shadows in the dark
And running from the stars
shadows after my spark
No wonder it never flashed

My mistakes are now clear
With hope that misery will be spared
Words' been spoken while I stared
But this night its pure that I learned

And now I sit on change
Change not seen but faith
Faith that wil bring me gud fate
Fate that wouldn't lay but rein

I'm a born hero
God even has me on stereo
So here in the end of dis rodeo
He will let me glow
