You start with a playful jab But it ****** me more than you know. I raise my weapon in defense, You take a couple of steps back. I think the match is done Until you come swinging Because you need to know that you've won.

You will be safe as long as I'm here with you You don't really need me, it's true But I'm here I'm not what you expect in a knight I'm not charming I'm not super strong I'm not even that brave My armor is old and rusty My sword is broken I don't even have a horse But for you, I will fight For you, I would die For you, there is nothing I wouldn't do
