Alesso – Heroes lyrics

[Verse 1: Tove Lo]
We go hideaway in daylight
We go undercover when under sun
Got a secret side in plain sight
Where the streets are empty
That's where we run


[Pre-Chorus: Tove Lo]
Everyday people do
Everyday things but I
Can't be one of them

I know you hear me now
We are a different kind
We can do anything

[Chorus: Tove Lo]
We could be heroes
We could be heroes
Me and you

We could be heroes
We could be heroes
Me and you
We could be

[Verse 2: Tove Lo]
Anybody's got the power
They don't see it
‘Cos they don't understand
Spin around and run for hours
You and me we got the world in our hands

[Pre-Chorus]
Everyday people do
Everyday things but I
Can't be one of them
I know you hear me now
We are a different kind
We can do anything

[Chorus]
We could be heroes
We could be heroes
Me and you
We could be heroes
We could be heroes
Me and you
We could be

[Refrain: Tove Lo]
We could be heroes
We could be heroes
Me and you...
We could be

[Bridge: Tove Lo]
All we're looking for is love and a little light
Love and a little light
(We could be)
All we're looking for is love and a little light
Love and a little light


[Refrain: Tove Lo]
We could be heroes
We could be heroes
Me and you...
We could be

    This song is about someone who lives an everyday life but wants to break free from it. They want to be a hero. I think that it is a love song and they're saying that them and their girlfriend/boyfriend could be something amazing, that they could save the world if they wanted to.

    I thought it was about people with abilities which are not common in mankind. The said people instead of being welcomed and befriended are unwillingly taken in, enslaved, giving drugs and experiments are taken part on their persons. They are miserable knowing everyday people do everyday things but the said group of captive people can not be a part of the said everyday people. One of them breaks out stating we should stick together and be heroes We should stick together and change things for the better. Going on to further say all they need is love and a little light.

    Music is art it speaks many words to many different people. Sometimes the intended message of the piece has been pre set yet the thoughts it inspires still come in as varied as the cultures of the world.
