Courage

Composer: Todd Rundgren
It's good to be the king, I've heard it said
That's why I let you put a crown on my head
Hoping that I'll never be forced to fake
Actions that I'll never have to take

I let you think I was a better man
With pretty words about how true I am
Humbly pretending to be brave and strong
Inside I'm wondering, what if I'm wrong?

Every once in a while you'll see
Things are not what they seem to be
Like the moment you saw through me

Ah, but when push came to shove
I had lost the thing I love
When I lost the courage of my convictions

I never let you see my doubting side
I've always felt there's things you can't confide
I need to be what I need to be
However artificially

And now I haven't got a thing to show
For all the posing and the bravado
You tested me and I had to fail
No longer am I a supermale

I was proud and I had to fall
Now my image has grown so small
And to think that I had it all

Ah, but when push came to shove
I had lost the thing I love
When I lost the courage of my convictions
And I live in constant fear
That I'll never have you here
Til I find the courage of my convictions

Ah, but when push comes to shove
I will have the thing I love
If I have the courage of my convictions
And your heart I would enslave
And this whole world I would save
If I have the courage of my convictions
