Legend In Your Own Time Lyrics

Artist: Carly Simon

Well I have known you
Since you were a small boy
And your mama used to say
"My boy is gonna grow up and be
Some kind of leader some day"

Then you'd turn on the radio
And sing with the singer in the band
Your mama would say to you
"This isn't exactly what we had planned"

But you're a legend in your own time
A hero in the footlights
Playin' tunes to fit your rhyme
But a legend's only a lonely boy
When he goes home alone.



And though I know you
Still have the heart of that small boy
Well, you lend it out far too much
And no one woman lovin' you
Can ever feel that she's been really touched.

Then you turn on the radio
And sing with the singer in the band
Think kind of sadly to yourself
This isn't exactly what you had planned.

But you're a legend in your own time
A hero in the footlights
Playin' tunes to fit your rhyme
But a legend's only a lonely boy
When he goes home alone.

Well a legend's only a lonely boy
When he goes home alone.
