I'd Be A Legend In My Time
Quote:
If heartaches brought fame in love's crazy game

I'd be a legend in my time

If they gave gold statues for tears and regrets

I'd be a legend in my time.



But they don't give awards and there's no praise or fame

For a heart that's been broken over love that's in vain

If loneliness meant world acclaim then everyone would know my name

I'd be a legend in my time.
