I am the one that you dream about,
In the shining armor that you talk about!
I see the shine in your eyes when you talk about me,
I see the hope in your eyes when you dream about me!
But today, I am here to show you the truth!
I want to tell you about how I earned my armor,
I want to tell you about how I almost lost my armor,
I want to tell you why I am scared of the night,
I want to tell you why I choose to be a knight!
Will you listen to me tonight?
Will you be strong enough to see me cry?
Will you be wise enough to catch me when I lie?
Will laugh with me until your stomach hurts?
Will you be willing to see my war cuts?
I am known for
the way I kill the crook
I want to tell you about my biggest fear,
I want to tell you about the mistakes I made,
I want to tell you about the love I have lost,
I want to tell you about the world that did armor has cost!
Will your eyes still shine after knowing my secret?
Will you still dream of me after knowing I am broken?
Will you still hope for me after knowing I am not all heaven?
Every good has some bad,
Every yin has a yang.
every knight was once a man.
every night has seen some crime.
I want you to love me even when I am naked
With my armor and world that you are dreaming!
I just do not want to be your knight in the shining armor
I want to be the one you want in the darkest hour!
