"We all can't be heroes. Somebody has to sit on the sides and clap as they go by." "In the end, they're just more words."

You and I,
we were the kings and queens
of the future.
We held the promises
of our people,
held them tight
in our grasp.

You and I,
we were the heroes and sidekicks
of the stories.
We fought the villains
set them running,
fought them again,
day after day.

That's what we were.
But now, I'm lost.
You're distant,
and I'm confused.
What happened to those days
when we were
sailing far and wide,
in the ships of imagination?
