Started a fire in a stream

They said it couldn’t be done

Ran a race against a cheetah

Because they said it couldn’t be won.

Tiptoed around the truth

Until you’ve forgotten how to lie

Set myself ablaze in a desert

To show you I can die.

Ran my hands down my legs

All the way to my feet

The mud fell from everywhere

Because they knew we’d never meet.

Told thousands of times

Nobody would ever love me

Built huge walls of brick and mortar

So nobody could hear the plea.

I’ve always thought a battle raging

Was simply delightful fun

But when it came to actually winning

They always said it couldn’t be done.
