about

This is another one of me and Big Al's early songs together . . . before we started writing together over at the Polygram offices (Al was signed to Polygram, partly he said because of the strength of our song "Help Yourself to Me"). We started this song at my apartment. As was usual, Al brought the title and the music is mine. We worked out the lyrics together. The more we wrote together, the more Al got involved with writing both the lyrics and some melodic ideas. But especially in the early days, his main input was titles. I've seldom seen anyone more dedicated to being a songwriter and working on it with such focus and dedication.

lyrics

SHE'S A LEGEND IN MY MIND

Our life is not a fairytale
But she's my diamond in the rough
Sometimes I win, sometimes I lose
But through it all I've had her love

She's no ordinary woman
But I'm her ordinary man
Fate brought us together
We do our best, with what we have
I believe in happy endings
'Cause she's the story of my life
She brought love into my heart
She's a legend in my mind

She may not reach the silver screen
But she reaches me with every kiss
She'll never be a movie star
But I know exactly who she is . . .

She's no ordinary woman
But I'm her ordinary man
Fate brought us together
We do our best, with what we have
I believe in happy endings
'Cause she's the story of my life
She brought love into my heart
She's a legend in my mind

She brought love into my heart
She's a legend in my mind
