lyrics

I
I wish you could swim
Like the dolphins
like dolphins can swim
Though nothing
nothing
will keep us together
We can beat them
forever and ever
Oh, we can be heroes
just for one day

I
I will be king
And you
you will be queen
Though nothing
will drive them away
We can be heroes
just for one day
….We can *be* us
just for one day

I
I can remember (I remember)
Standing, by the wall (by the wall)
And the guns
shot above our heads (over our heads)
And we kissed, as though nothing could fall (nothing could fall)
And the shame, was on the other side
Oh, we can beat them, forever and ever
Then we could be heroes, just for one day

We can be heroes
We can be heroes
We can be heroes
(Just for one day)
We can be heroes
