810. The Villain

This man doesn’t appear to be a villain? Shouldn’t he be wearing more black and have a pencil-thin mustache, perhaps one of those Audrey Hepburn cigarette things like in B-Fast at Tiff’s?? This man does appear to be Parker Millsap who wrote and performs a song called “The Villain,”… & it is excellent.

I don’t wanna be,
The villain in your dreams any more.
I don’t wanna be,
The reason you lose sleep anymore.
I don’t wanna be the one,
That locks the door and loads the gun,
And pulls the trigger ’til you wake up sore.


I don’t wanna be,
The villain in your dreams anymore.

I don’t wanna be,
The one that lets you down anymore.
I don’t wanna be,
The gravity the ground anymore.
I don’t wanna be the man,
That lifts you up and helps you stand,
Then holds you high and drops you to the floor.

I don’t wanna be,
The one that lets you down anymore.
I don’t wanna be,
The one that holds you back anymore.
I don’t wanna be,
The missing piece of track anymore.
I don’t wanna be the guy,
That straps you to a railroad tie,
And listens for the rumble and the roar.

I don’t wanna be….

The villain…

in your dreams…

anymore.
