LYRIC
Hero (Live From the Honda Center, Anaheim, CA / 2006)

Intro

I wrote a song a while back, even before One Sweet Day and...
It was... not my favorite song in the world, but I wrote it...
Somebody asked me to write a song, they told me the story and, you know, it was kinda like a moving concept or whatever...
And I did it, I was like, you know it's not necessarily what I like per se...
But after doing the song over and over again, I have people come up to me and saying... coming up to me and saying
Thank you for writing Hero, because it saved my life, it saved my father's life, or it saved my brother's life, or my sister's life, or something of that nature...
I said I always have to sing that song whenever I perform because if I don't, you never know who I'm leaving out and, you know what, in times in my life I've had to turn to that song lyrically and- and... you know, flip it onto my own life and sing it to myself, so...
It's from the Music Box album and um... it's called Hero, so this is for you guys
Thank you Anaheim for being here with me tonight, Orange County, everybody that, like incredible
I have to thank you so much...
And you can sing along to this one too if you want

Verse 1

There's a hero
If you look inside your heart
You don't have to be afraid
Of what you are
There's an answer
If you reach into your soul
And the sorrow that you know
Will melt away

Chorus

And then a hero comes along
With the strength to carry on
And you cast your fears aside
And you know you can survive
So when you feel like hope is gone
Look inside you and be strong
And you'll finally see the truth
That a hero lies in you
Ooh yes it does

Verse 2

'Cause it's a long road
When you face the world alone
And no one reaches out a hand
For you to hold
But you can find love, ooh yes you can
If you search within yourself
And the emptiness you felt
Will disappear

Chorus

And then a hero comes along
With the strength to carry on
And you cast your fears aside
And you know you can survive
So when you feel like hope is gone
Look inside you and be strong
And you'll finally see the truth
That a hero lies in you

Bridge

Lord knows
Dreams are hard to follow
But don't you let anyone
Tear them away
Just hold on, and hold on, and hold o-o-on
And there will be tomorrow
In time
You'll find the way

Chorus

And then a hero comes along
With the strength to carry on
And then you cast your fears aside
And you know you can survive
So when you feel like hope is gone
Look inside you and be strong
And you'll finally see the truth
That a hero lies in you and you and you and you and you and you and you

Outro

That a hero lies in you
Every single one of you
Oh yes it does, oh yes it does, I know it does
A hero lies in you
Thank you Jesus
Thank you...
