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
Robert

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

Robert is producing his version of the song just so you know. He has no objection to you doing your thing with the lyrics. I’d love to see what you do with it as well if you want to proceed with it. It’s always interesting to see how differently lyrics are interpreted. Feel free to make changes if needed to suit your music.

I thought I’d share a draft version of what I came with. I really like this lyric.

If this is a newer version send it to me. I can’t open it on soundclick.
