I’ve never been me

Verse
My Imagination;
She paints such vivid dreams.
Wakes my inner feelings
and has me do strange things.
Chorus
I’ve been a hero, been a villain
But I’m never me.
I’ve sailed the oceans and gone places
That I’ll never see.
I’ve been an actor, been a soldier
Things I’d like to be.
But I have never no I’ve never.
I’ve never been me.
Verse
My imagination;
Sees things I’ve never seen.
Takes me to grand places
Caught on the silver screen.
Chorus
I’ve been a hero, been a villain
But I’m never me.
I’ve sailed the oceans and gone places
That I’ll never see.
I’ve been an actor, been a soldier
Things I’d like to be.
But I have never no I’ve never.
I’ve never been me.
Bridge
  Blurred like water colors
Those dreams they are surreal.
They help me sleep; forget the world.
Make me forget I’m me.
Verse
My imagination;
She is my only friend.
Makes my life worth living.
She shares where she has been.
Chorus
I’ve been a hero, been a villain
But I’m never me.
I’ve sailed the oceans and gone places
That I’ll never see.
I’ve been an actor, been a soldier
Things I’d like to be.
But I have never no I’ve never.
I’ve never been me.

Hi Carroll,
I like this one. I’ll give it a try if you don’t mind.

All the best

Of course I don’t mind. I appreciate it! Hope your Golf vacation and business trip went smoothly. We’ve had Sleet snow and ice for 4 days. Got down to 19 degrees F here in Houston. Finally warming up. Supposed to be back to 70 tomorrow.

I’ll see what I come up with.
Vacation was nice and warm. It was freezing cold in New York and I returned to a kind of winter hurricane storm here. Crazy weather.

Hi Carroll,
I suggest to make the following minor modifications to the chorus. Do you agree?

I’ve been a hero, been a villain
But I’ve never been me.
I’ve sailed the oceans and gone places
That I’ll never see.
I’ve been an actor, been a soldier
Things I’d like to be.
But I’ve never no I’ve never.
I’ve never been me.

The last line of the chorus is the title of the song and I would repeat it in line two of the chorus. That make it stick better.

All the best
Robert
