we saw a movie where the hero had
-- this may sound silly -- such honour, and
he protected all those he loved
with such power it made me glad.
when we left the show, i know it's so
different from those days long ago.
i held your hand and didn't let go
until you were safe inside your home.

the hero's family and friends all died.
he couldn't help them, no matter how he tried.
fate was stronger he could not deny.
the story moved me,
i almost cried.
when we left the show, i know it's so
different from those days long ago.
i kept looking behind, i was hoping no one
was following us on our way back home.

    General CommentI think this songs comments on the fear that is laced into our world today. He makes them personal and lovely, and I know we can all relate to how he feels.
