From the album When I am Gone

Heroes is a song about how great we used to be together, we used to be superheroes, you and me...

Lyrics

Heroes
(copyright Bloom/Davis)

It used to be
you & me against the world.
It used to be
you & me and no one else.
We used to be a tidal wave
but we're now not quite so brave
It used to be just you & me against the world

It used to be
you & me against them all
It used to be
you & me reaching for gold.
We used to be a perfect storm
but we’re now not quite so strong
It used to be just you & me against them all

Chorus:
And we used to be heroes
at least in each other's eyes
Superman & Supergirl
flying through the southern skies
Nobody knew the secrets the two of us were hiding
Now our capes are gathering dust & we're no longer flying

It used to be
you & me against them all
It used to be
you & me to stand or fall
We used to be like shooting stars
now we're wearing matching scars
It used to be just you & me against them all

Bridge:
And you are tired of telephone booths
& I am tired of hiding the truth.
And it's hard to be a hero
when there's nothing left worth fighting for!
