David + David – Heroes lyrics

Fifteen long years on a losing streak
And a lot of bodies unburied
And there comes a time
When you cannot turn the other cheek

You have got to ride the ferry
Past the battered old bodies of dead, dead dreamers
Past the tethered and fettered
And desk bound schemers

The punks and the drunks and the bad guitar players
And the dewy eyed teenage dragon slayers
You come to this place where you can say
I just want to work with you

As we do the things that we know we have to do
Ever hopeful and ever blue
We do the things that we know we have to do

And though we all know deep down in our hearts
That someday this will all fall apart
For right now let's just be heroes

The telegraph man took a break today
He pulled out all the wires
He looked out the window at the rainy, rainy day
And he wondered about the future of fire

As he leaned back in his chair
With a long cold fishy eyed stare
He looked like December until he remembered
The day he'd said I just want to work with you

As we do the tings that we know we have to do
Ever hopeful and ever blue
We do the things the things that we know we have to do

Yeah, we both know deep down in our hearts
Someday this will all fall apart
For right now let's just be heroes
