lyrics

Don’t Be Afraid Of Dragons

Don’t be afraid of dragons until you get to know them
You see them through the trees at night and you creep, and you sneak right up to them

Don’t be afraid of dragons, ‘til you know why you should
‘Til you see flames pour from their mouths to scorch the mossy wood
‘Til you hear them laughing out loud, smoke spewing from between their teeth
Until you feel the rumble when you hear them speak

Don't be afraid of dragons, ‘til you've lived in their nest
‘Til you've heard their stories at night and sat, and wondered what comes next

Don’t be afraid of dragons, ‘til you’ve seen them afraid
‘Til you’ve seen them guarding their children, in the back of the cave
‘Til you’ve seen them standing over their young, crouched like a wounded mother bear
‘Til you’ve felt the heat of their flames and the heat of their stare

And you may be the nicest person that you know
The strongest, or the brightest, or the most beautiful
But consider one thing first
Would someone think you were a dragon if they met you at your worst?

Don't be afraid of dragons, ‘til you ridden on their wings
‘Til you’ve seen the cities from above, hungry peasants and the lonely kings

Don't be afraid of dragons ‘till you've heard them sing,
‘Til you’ve heard those mighty melodies that only fire can bring
‘Til you've heard them humming at night, in the misty mountain glow
‘TIl you’ve heard them in their majesty and in their woe

And you may be the nicest person that you know
The strongest, or the brightest, or the most beautiful
But consider one thing first
Would someone think you were a dragon if they met you at your worst?

And he said…
Climb aboard! Climb aboard my wings!
We may never, we may never come this way again

Climb aboard! Climb aboard!
You’re my friend, and I’m yours
I’m yours

Don't be afraid of dragons, until you're afraid of us
‘Til you've seen the king go mad with jealousy, with hatred and with lust

Don't be afraid of dragons, ‘til you miss them when they're gone
‘Til you miss their stories, and you miss their songs
‘Til you miss their humming at night, when you're laying down to bed
‘Til you miss them and wonder if they were in your head

Climb aboard! Climb aboard my wings!
We may never, we may never come this way again

Climb aboard! Climb aboard!
You’re my friend, and I’m yours
I’m yours

I’m yours, I’m yours
I’m yours, I’m yours
I’m yours, I’m yours
I’m yours, I’m yours

(Drop down and say goodnight, you are one of us)
(Drop down and say goodnight, you are one of us)
(Drop down and say goodnight, you are one of us)
(Drop down and say goodnight, you are one of us)
