We met up on the stage in the safe Heartland
started lending each other a hand
Huddled in the light, conspired in the moonlight
Perfect harmony in a stranger's world
No news that something was wrong at all
until we drummed and laughed 'til dawn
Two nights later, left half-alive
Staying up unloading deep dreams until five

Then we were rescuing the One and Only
Getting him back to where he needed to be
Rescuing the one and only
If you love someone better help his *** get free

Cross not the princess with the tourniquet
'round her autumn hair
She tries to steal my thunder
Dislodge her from her father and she
just might deign to care
But one thing at a time left to do
and first priority's You
Not our job to get her outta there, just to whisk you
away through the road and the air, get you outta here


Losing heart in the sweet Heartland
but the pressure is on to pitch in, to understand
I understand

Make it so, pack up your heart and go
We'll meet you out on the road and ride out of the sunset
One with the red-ended day and the blue-hearted storm
No more the ivory cloth and the crimson fruit
You've been reborn.


I don't know what will be.
Just hop in with me. We'll just have to see.
Goddess knows now you're free.

Keep your strength and keep your power
Don't give up; that's all that matters.
