There was an aeon when domination meant strength And compassion, the reverse Few thought to question this Time to evolve To see we were wrong This is not what it means to be strong In time, humankind awoke “The question is not, Can they reason? nor, Can they talk? but, Can they suffer?” Time to evolve To see we were wrong This is not what it means to be strong

Hour 1: Singing to a packed house but all I see is you Hour 2: A short exchange reveals your accent that drives me wild But let's not take this too far Hour 3: Dancing on a packed floor now all you see is me Hour 4: Doors were locked but we've found each other's key Hour 5: How 'bout a getaway from this bar? But let's not take this too far Hour 6: Up to your room for a couple a drinks I say You're like my One Day Fiancée Hour 7: My fantasy has bloomed into reality You're my Fiancée for one day Hour 8, hour 9, hour 10, 11, 12... 13: Waking up, now here comes the awkward part 14: But even with slept in make up you've stolen my heart But let's not take this too far 15: Now you're my breakfast in bed 16: Room service what a beautiful spread 17: Living the moment like honeymoon lovers But did we take this too far? 18: I need to breathe from the breath that you took from me 'Cause you're my One Day Fiancée 19: But we can play for the rest of our time today You're my Fiancée for one day Tomorrow will take you miles away Are we saying goodbye to what's meant to be? 20: What we could say if we had more than just today Reality will soon become a fantasy 21: What we could say if we had more than just today Goodbye, goodbye, my One Day Fiancée 22: Reality will soon become a fantasy Goodbye, goodbye, my One Day Fiancée 23: Goodbye, goodbye, my One Day Fiancée Goodbye, goodbye, my One Day Fiancée 24: Goodbye, goodbye, goodbye, goodbye, goodbye, goodbye 'Til maybe one day...

The oppressors call her a killjoy They try to make her believe all is well But she sees through the veil that they've woven With eyes that they'll never see through In search of truth There goes my heroine, opening minds everyday Though she goes against the grain, she is here to lead the way She's my heroine, she is swimming upstream Fights for the vision that she sees, 'til it's no longer a dream She's not here for your comfort She's been silent for far too long They might try to cut her down, 'cause they know she's a beacon of hope And while they try they'll prove themselves wrong Prove she's what we've needed all along They need a heroine, opening minds everyday Though she goes against the grain, she is here to lead the way She's my heroine, she is swimming upstream Fights for the vision that she sees, 'til it's no longer a dream She is their worst nightmare, fresh out of my dreams She fights their reactions with reason and compassion I will stand by Heroine, opening minds everyday Though she goes against the grain, she is here to lead the way She's my heroine, she is swimming upstream Fights for the vision that she sees, 'til it's no longer a dream 'Til it's no longer a dream
