"Hero (3:06)" Lyrics [edit]
by Skillet | from the album Awake (Deluxe Edition)
 

V1
I'm just a step away
I'm just a breath away
Losing my faith today
(Falling off the edge today)

I am just a man
Not superhuman
(I'm not superhuman)
Someone save me from the hate

Pre
It's just another war
Just another family torn
(Falling from my faith today)
Just a step from the edge
Just another day in the world we live

Chorus
I need a hero to save me now
I need a hero
(Save me now)
I need a hero to save my life
A hero'll save me
(Just in time)

V2
I gotta fight today
To live another day
Speaking my mind today
(My voice will be heard today)

I've gotta make a stand
But I am just a man
(I'm not superhuman)
My voice will be heard today

Pre
It's just another war
Just another family torn
(My voice will be heard today)
It's just another kill
The countdown begins to destroy ourselves

Bridge
Who's gonna fight for what's right
Who's gonna help us survive

We're in the fight of our lives

(And we're not ready to die)


Who's gonna fight for the weak
Who's gonna make 'em believe
I've got a hero

(I've got a hero)

Living in me

I'm gonna fight for what's right
Today I'm speaking my mind

And if it kills me tonight

(I will be ready to die)

A hero's not afraid to give his life
A hero's gonna save me just in time


(John L. cooper/ Korey Cooper)

Behind the Song:
"This song is the platform over which the whole record was written. Basically every day seems to get weirder, darker and scarier with thousands of people losing their homes and hurting over a wide variety of reasons. You see so much negativity on the news, especially this sense of violence that’s getting really crazy. With all this going on, it’s easy to feel on the edge, but no matter how dark it gets, there’s always hope in a new day and staying positive is the first step. And when you boil it all down, Christ is the one who gives us a reason to live and He’s our “Hero” who’s fighting for all of this oppression and injustice." - John Cooper (Skillet)
