Hero       (Phil Collins/David Crosby)

It was one of those great stories
that you can't put down at night
The hero knew what he had to do
and he wasn't afraid to fight
The villain goes to jail
where the hero goes free
I wish it were that simple for me

And the reason that she loved him
was the reason I loved him too
And he never wondered what was right or wrong
He just knew, he just knew

Shadow and shade mix together at dawn
But by the time you catch them simplicity's gone
So we sort through the pieces, my friends and I
Searching through the darkness to find the breaks in the sky

And the reason that.

And we wonder, yes we wonder
How do you make sense of this
When the hero kills the maiden
with his kiss, with his kiss

Well it was one of those...
