lyrics

HERO
______

[DAVE]
Side 4. Track 1. “Hero.”

[BRITTAIN (Rose)]
GUESS I MESSED UP
GUESS I MADE A BAD CALL
BUT I HAVE NO IDEA
WHAT I COULD HAVE DONE DIFFERENT

ONE LITTLE CHOICE
ONE SMALL ACTION
ONE COINCIDENCE OF THOUGHT
AND THE LIGHTS WENT OUT

I WANT TO DANCE
I WANT TO GAZE AT THE STARS
I WANT TO TAKE A PICTURE
AT THE END OF THE WORLD

I NEVER THOUGHT
THAT THINGS REALLY DIE
NOT IN REAL LIFE, IN REAL LIFE
THERE’S NO SUCH THING AS GHOSTS

I AM NOT A HERO
I AM NOT A MOVIE STAR
I AM NOT A GENIUS, I KNOW
I AM NOT A MONK
I’M NOT SPECIAL
I’M THE SAME AS ANYONE ELSE

YOU AND I
WE WERE ALWAYS A MESS
DRINKING OUR BOURBON
SCREAMING IN THE STREETS

WHEN I SAW YOU COMING
ICE AND RAGE IN YOUR EYES
I PUT ON MY ARMOR AND MY SHIELD
AND RAISED UP MY SWORD

I AM NOT A HERO
I AM NOT A MOVIE STAR
I AM NOT A GENIUS, I KNOW
I AM NOT A MONK
I’M NOT SPECIAL
I’M THE SAME AS YOU

AND YOU
YOU WERE THERE TOO
YOU DROVE THAT TRAIN
RIGHT THROUGH MY HEART

AND YOU
YOU WERE THERE TOO
YOU DROVE THAT TRAIN
RIGHT THROUGH MY HEART

BUT I GUESS IT’S TIME
TO PUT THAT TO BED
I GUESS IT’S TIME
TO LET THE DEAD BE DEAD
