Song Description

When we are young we all make promises about how we're going to leave a better world behind: better than the one left for us. But it all comes to nothing.

Great singing and arrangement. Powerful mood.

Really good and soulful song, both musically and lyrically. Powerful piece with really good arrangement and instrumentation, and vocals as well.

Lyrics

HEROES
© 2017 Lyrics & Music by Simon Finn

Verse 1
It doesn't really matter
If you're generation X or Y
Remember when your mother said
I'll give you a reason to cry?
It turns out all she wanted was
Somebody else to blame
We tell familiar stories
And we all turn out the same

Verse 2
Remember when your father said
"Son I want to make you proud"?
A life of disappointment
means he tells a different story now
If you could bear to listen
You would hear him say
"Remember all the things
We used to dream about?"

Chorus
We could have been heroes
Could have been heroes
We were the future
Now we're just losers
We should have been the heroes

Verse 3
Remember when we told ourselves
the future was ours to take?
A future for our children's children
Look what a mess we made
Promises are whispered
Once we used to shout
Remember all the slogans
That we screamed aloud?

Chorus
We could have been heroes
Could have been heroes
We were the future
Now we're just losers
Remember all the things
We used to dream about?
We could have been heroes
Could have been heroes
We were fearless and brave
We got greedy and lazy
We should have been the heroes
We should have been the heroes
We should have been the heroes

Bridge
Remember how we promised
that we wouldn't turn out the same?

Chorus
We could have been heroes
Could have been heroes
We were the future
Now we're just losers
Remember all the things
We used to dream about?
We could have been heroes
Could have been heroes
We were fearless and brave
We got greedy and lazy
We should have been the heroes

We were the future
Now we're just losers
We should have been the heroes
