lyrics

HE DOESNT WEAR A CAPE HES A NORMAL GUY
MAYBE A LITTLE BIT AWKWARD LITTLE BIT SHY
HE WORKS IN A CUBICLE 9 TO 5
& NEVER EVER THOUGHT HE WOULD SAVE A LIFE
BUT CRISIS STRIKES WHEN YOU LEAST EXPECT
YOU TURN YOUR HEAD & GASP FOR BREATH
TIME STANDS STILL THERES ADRENALINE RUSH
& YOU DO WHAT YOU MUST

WHY DOES HE RISK HISSELF
JUST TO SAVE SOMEONE ELSE
WHEN HE KNOWS HE COULD LOSE
EVERYTHING THAT HE LOVES?
WHY DOES HE SACRIFICE
WHAT HE HAS FOR WHATS RIGHT?
THERES NO CHOICE ITS BECAUSE
THATS WHAT A HERO DOES

SHE DOESNT WEAR A MASK SHES A NORMAL GIRL
MAYBE A LITTLE BIT AFRAID OF THE CRAZY WORLD
SHE KINDA KEEPS TO HERSELF DOESNT LIKE DANGER
NEVER EVER THOUGHT SHE WOULD SAVE A STRANGER
BUT WHEN THE TIME CAME SHE HAD TO ACT
SHE DIDNT BACK DOWN SHE ATTACKED
SHE KEPT COOL WHEN THE PRESSURE MOUNTED
SHE WAS BRAVE WHEN IT COUNTED

WHY DOES SHE RISK HERSELF
JUST TO SAVE SOMEONE ELSE
WHEN SHE KNOWS SHE COULD LOSE
EVERYTHING THAT SHE LOVES?
WHY DOES SHE SACRIFICE
WHAT SHE HAS FOR WHATS RIGHT?
THERES NO CHOICE ITS BECAUSE
THATS WHAT A HERO DOES

THEY RUN INTO THE BURNING BUILDINGS
THEY DIVE ON LIVE GRENADES
THEY SWIM IN SEAS OF SHARKS
BUT NOT FOR MONEY NOT FOR FAME
THEY DO IT CAUSE THEIR DESTINIES COMPEL THEM
THE WORLD IS BUT A STAGE
WE ALL HAVE PATHS TO FOLLOW
WE ALL HAVE PARTS TO PLAY

YOURE NOT A SUPERHERO YOURE A NORMAL GIRL OR GUY
YOU MIND YOUR BUSINESS STAY IN LINE
YEAH YOU MIGHT HAVE HEARD A SONG OF WHAT THE HEROES DO
BUT YOU NEVER EVER THOUGHT IT WOULD APPLY TO YOU
BUT YOU NEVER SAY NEVER CAUSE YOU NEVER KNOW
SUDDENLY SMASH & THERE YOU GO
YOU TAKE CONTROL PLAY A CRITICAL ROLE
& BECOME A HERO

WHY DO YOU RISK YOURSELF
JUST TO SAVE SOMEONE ELSE
WHEN YOU KNOW YOU COULD LOSE
EVERYTHING THAT YOU LOVE?
WHY DO YOU SACRIFICE
WHAT YOU HAVE FOR WHATS RIGHT?
THERES NO CHOICE ITS BECAUSE
THATS WHAT A HERO DOES
