Personal Legend
 
Lyrics
My Personal Legend

I ran into an old friend, Downtown yesterday
We said all the same things, Old friends always say
He said I heard you been happy, I said I heard life's been good
And I'd keep in touch better if only I could


Then we smiled when we talked about Jesse
And we cried when we thought how it ended
And we laughed when we saw how we'd screwed up the way
That our personal legends were made


My personal legend, Lives on every day
In the words that I've written, And the things people say
I wish that I could see, The road that's ahead
As clearly as I see this life that I've led

Lead Break

He fired up his old car,, I got into my truck
He said we could be famous, With the right kind of luck
We agreed on a new name, And some new songs to play
And we promised to start a new legend that day

Then we smiled when we talked about Jesse
And we cried when we thought how it ended
And we laughed when we saw how we'd screwed up the way
That our personal legends were made


My personal legend, Lives on every day
In these words that I've written, And those things people say
I wish that I could see, The road that's ahead
As clearly as I see this life that I've led
