The world needs a hero, a hero, hero
but who will stand to save it, to save it, save it?
The world needs a hero, a hero, hero
but who will rise to change it, to change it, change it?

Hero, save us now,
the world can’t wait any longer.
For a hero who could make a difference,
a hero who could save us all this time.

Will you rise to be a hero, a hero, hero,
or end up like all the rest, all the rest, the rest?
Will you rise to be a hero, a hero, hero,
or leave it all for someone else, for someone else, someone else?

Hero, save us now,
the world can’t wait any longer.
For a hero who could make a difference,
a hero who could save us all this time.

All have failed
Before you, hero
All have died
Before you, hero
Will you give your life,
my hero,
as those who died before you?

Hero, save us now
the world can’t wait any longer.
All have failed
and all have died
but hero, you could do it right.

Like none have done before you,
hero


The author's comments:
I wrote this after studying heroes in Mythology. I found that in all Mythology, a hero's life is tragic, and a hero never accomplishes what he was sent to.

Life is perfect until you sit back and realize how boring it is without risks.

Inspiring! Everyone should be a hero or at least try. :)
