"Legendary" as written by and John Gomez Jessica Bowen....
When I was a kid, I'd fly around in Peter with men's shirt
Don't be afraid to die, cause to die would be an awfully big invention
Today I stopped believing, and my friends say they're so bored of me
I used to be a real boy, with real plans, now I'm just reality TV
Used to be your knight in shining armor, and I'd rescue you from hell

Daily I stare into the mirror, and I say to myself,
I've spent too many nights watching 'How I Met Your Mother' alone
Now I'm searching for my yellow umbrella, oh then I'll take her home
Baby I just want to be legendary
Yeah we all wanna be legendary to somebody
Yeah somebody oh

I'm done chasing actresses
I'm full of love and they're all full of shit
Now I'm stumbling out the bar
One more fame-monster story, I'll be sick
One day I stopWed believing in all the ones
The magic had died
I just need to accept, friends grow up and lovers will lie
Yeah I used to be James Dean, now it's celebrity rehab hell
I swear that I could be amazing, I just need a little help

And I've spent too many nights watching 'How I Met Your Mother' alone
Now I'm searching for my yellow umbrella, oh then I'll take her home
Baby I just want to be legendary
Yeah we all wanna be legendary to somebody
Yeah somebody oh

Da-da-da-ra-ra-ra-ra
Da-da-da-ra-ra-ra-ra
Da-da-da-ra-ra-ra-ra
Da-da-da-ra-ra-ra-ra
Da-da-da-ra-ra-ra-ra

I've spent too many nights watching 'How I Met Your Mother' alone
Now I'm searching for my yellow umbrella, oh then I'll take her home
Baby I just want to be legendary
Yeah we all wanna be legendary to somebody
To somebody oh

    Song MeaningUnbelievable song. Pretty easy to interpret. We grow up hoping to do something impactful in this world, or legendary. When we get older, many of us end up with routine lives, watching tv, and not chasing our initial dreams.

    It also incorporates the guy finding girl scenario, and how finding the right girl could be the meaning that he's been looking for in his life.

    And of course, the how i met your mother references with the yellow umbrella and the name of the song is obviously a throw to the show too. Legend... wait for it... dary.
