THE TEACHER AND THE DRAGON

(SHARP/MIDNITE)

I'VE SEEN YOU TAKE THE WORLD ON
WITH NOTHING BUT A GRIN
WHENEVER THAT WAS NOT ENOUGH
YOU'D TAKE IT ON AGAIN
I WATCHED YOU FACE THE DRAGON
THAT FILLED ME FULL OF FEAR
I SAW YOU CLIMB ONTO HIS BACK
THEN WHISPER IN HIS EAR

CHORUS:
IT'S FAIR TO SAY YOU TAUGHT ME
SO MANY THINGS I'VE LEARNED
A GIFT THAT IS FREELY GIVEN
OFTEN CANNOT BE EARNED
IT'S FAIR TO SAY I NEEDED YOU
AND THAT I NEED YOU STILL
EVER YOU TAUGHT ME COURAGE
WITH THE GIFT OF YOUR GOOD WILL

I SAW THE DRAGON LOOK AT YOU
MUCH AS I HAVE DONE
IT SEEMED TO ME HE SMILED A BIT
BEFORE HE AMBLED ON
I DON'T KNOW WHAT YOU TOLD HIM
OR WHAT IT MEANT TO HIM
BUT THERE'S NEVER BEEN A DRAGON
I HAVE FEARED SINCE THEN


CHORUS:
IT'S FAIR TO SAY YOU TAUGHT ME
SO MANY THINGS I'VE LEARNED
A GIFT THAT IS FREELY GIVEN
OFTEN CANNOT BE EARNED
IT'S FAIR TO SAY I NEEDED YOU
AND THAT I NEED YOU STILL
EVER YOU TAUGHT ME COURAGE
WITH THE GIFT OF YOUR GOOD WILL
