Time Loves A Hero Lyrics

by Little Feat

Well they say time loves a hero
But only time will tell
If he's real, he's a legend from heaven
If he ain't he was sent here from hell

Hear me well, seein' ain't always believin'
Just make sure it's the truth that you're seein'
Eyes sometimes lie, eyes sometimes lie
They can be real deceiving'

I got an uncle in Puerto Rico
Spends his days in the sun
And his nights in the casinos
He left the States many years ago

Took a fishin' boat to Puerto Rico
Now my aunt, she is sad and lonely
She'll never know that she drove him away
As a coward I admire his courageous ways

Well they say time loves a hero
But only time will tell
If he's real, he's a legend from heaven
But if he ain't he was sent here from hell

Some say my uncle, that he's a zero
His life is as a shell, he left it back at Stateside
I'd say he's doin' well, without his shell
Bumming 'round the beaches of Puerto Rico

The beauty of the sunrise and sunset
To his friends he wish he could tell
They're at home still runnin' for bells
Better San Juan than his blue collar hell

Well they say time loves a hero
But only time will tell
But if he's real, he's a legend from heaven
But if he ain't he was sent here from hell

Time loves a hero
Well they say time loves a hero
