Furtado, Nelly - Legend Lyrics




He wants to be, he wants to be, with everything under the sun
He wants to be, he wants to be, with everything under the sun

[Chorus:]
And like a legend that rises and unfolds I cannot be his only one

He makes me feel, he makes me feel, like you used to
(Whoa) like you used to
He makes me feel, he makes me feel, like you used to
(Whoa) like you used to

[Chorus:]
And like a fickle flower when it first sees the light
I cannot show just how I fight
And like a fickle flower when it first sees the light
I cannot show just how I fight

Babe I saw you walking, it was after midnight
Carrying nothing except for a flashlight
You wanted to be Romeo so low at my window
You wanted to be Romeo so low at my window
Will you open the door for me if you believe in chivalry
Will you open the door for me if you believe in chivalry
For I do not think you low though you bow to me so-so
I do not think you low though you bow to me so-so

[Bridge:]
I know you want to drink from the purest wine
But the drink is far more sour then you would ever think
He wants to be, he wants to be with everything under the sun
And she wants to burn, she wants to burn hot like that sun
(Whoa) hot like that sun

[Chorus]
Just like a legend that rises and unfolds I cannot be his only one
And like a callous, cold, callous woman she'll never know what she did done

So like this legend that rises and unfolds I'll never be his only one

  4. sugerlipsx Jamie wright

    Sweetly done ✅

  5. Chu Chu

    This was her best. Her realest. Most original album. All the songs flowed. But "Party" is definitely my best song on it. Classic.

  6. Angelene Storey

    I used to listen to this cd on my portable cd player lol i must have been 11 or so...I still love this song! ahh the fond memories of childhood <3

  7. 773SleepyHollow

    I remember when this song first came out; I heard it in my nursing home. I was 107 years old.

    Yes, I'm the oldest person in the world, but I don't have documentation of my birth, so unfortunately I'm not listed in The Guinness Book of World Records.

  8. Anibal Molina

    Yes, Nelly in the descriptions of the songs, said she wanted to do an English bossa nova song, so this is the result. And it's great.

  9. Dan Sua

    I was 16 too, sweet memories that will never come back again...

  10. M.A. H.C.

    hace 10 años que no la escuchaba esta canción , tiene buen ritmo

  11. Ronny aus Lechbruck

    Genial!

  12. Lady Laura

    I used to fall asleep to this album around 10-12 years old... forgot all about it until now!

    Edd Chaos

    Me too! this álbum is the best.

    Juvy Lucero

    Lady Laura same with me.. I was around 14 years old when I had this album of hers.. And played this Cd for hours..

    Mike O'Keeffe

    Love that comment

    reace m

    Me too x

  13. The Curious Case of Kiana Thomas

    I was five when this album debuted. I remember listening to this album like it was yesterday!

  14. Karina Pineda

    Uff tiempo buscando esta cancion...!!

  15. Cocopiola

    Damn fine, if you ask me. Damn fine.

    RealityCheck6T9

    @Cocopiola Thanks, I work out regularly

  16. Rachel Aspögård

    Nelly is cool.  She has her own style...

    Reign Omega

    Play this back to back with Esthero "Heaven sent" then say that again...

    Ray Orlando

    +Reign Omega so what if it was a case of "infringement" esthero would have said something...this came out in 2000 so sit down

    Damian Delafosse

    Fuck off, they're barely similar.

  17. Cocopiola

    I think I was twelve or thirteen when I'm like a Bird came out. I bought the record and fell in love with this song instantly. Brings back so many memories now... just a youngster. I can't believe twelve years have passed already.

    And like a fickle flower when it first sees the light~

  18. Ricardo CUNHA

    Sim, parece ora bossa nova, ora hip-hop eletrônico mesmo.

  19. Truth Teller

    Yh, I would say Bosa Nova. She is Portuguese after all so it will explain why she got her inspiration from Brazilian Jazz.

  20. Zane Whitehead

    Ha! I am 31 now. I remember listening to this album over and over, incessantly. I still love it. I played this as a soundtrack to Everquest, along with No Doubt. I can't listen to these songs without thinking of my monk, Macel, on the Firiona Vie server. Ah, good times.

  21. GurlCaa

    fer sure! its crazy how her music was better at 22-25, then at like 32-35 which she is now.

    They say u get better with age...??

    Tai Chi Tube

    corrupted by the lifestyle

  22. Maribel Melendez

    This is my all time favorite #1
    <3

  23. Bobby Martinez

    I was 9 and my mom took me to the mall because I wanted the CD so bad after hearing I'm like a bird. And because of my good grades in school :) such a time for me. Just wondering about life and how trippy the cd was! I still listen to those songs today at age 21 :)

  24. Shiznaft

    I was in Spain then too, all these songs have some meaning for me. Great Album.

  25. 773SleepyHollow

    She did a great cover of "Crazy" (after you wrote this comment).

  26. Brenda A

    i was the same age at that time too. it was awesome!

  27. HollyHeatherLynnn

    repeat repeat repeat :)

  28. Andrew Sanderson

    Martín: vos nos entendistes nada... seguí así

  29. Ryan Carr

    @loveelle94
    who are you or anyone to judge weather she is still authentic or not??? WTF?

    Tai Chi Tube

    she became a bit of a slat, like most female pop stars

  30. Khyann S Perez

    Nelly killed this song love it thumbs up if yhu love nelly furtado

  31. Khyann S Perez

    nice beat love the song

  32. Paula Z

    I was also 15-16 years old when this album came out. It is pretty nostalgic listening to this, like a lot of you this album holds a sentimental value. I remember it keeping me company as i replayed it. Her new songs do not hold the freshness and emotional depth these do. Obviously. Thanks for sharing. :)

  33. 773SleepyHollow

    This is my favorite song of Nelly's...

  34. Andrew Sanderson

    Martin no entendistes nada vos... nunca deberias habert subido a ese auto...pero vos querias todo todo todo, y yo solo queria escuchar esta canción sentado en mi auto y comiendo sandwiches de miga mientras nevaba afuera... y vos sos el que canta NF! Una auténtica leyenda....

  35. Al Lamaye

  38. kerrsgurl
