(Jeremy Stover/Steve Bogard)

You've been livin' way too long, in broken promise land
Your dreams crushed and scattered like a million grains of sand
I'd love to be your redemption, but I am just a man
I may never be a hero, but I'm a rock you can lean on

If I don't love you like you deserve
If I don't stop every tear you're crying
If I don't make your life heaven on this earth
I'll die trying, I'll die trying

I'll listen to your secret prayer and share your deepest wish
Search for a hundred years just to find the perfect kiss
Everything within my power, there's nothing I won't give
To be that man in your life
That takes what's wrong and makes it right

(Repeat chorus)

I may never be a hero, I'm a rock you can lean on

(Repeat chorus)

I may never be a hero
But I'm a rock you can lean on
I wanna be that part of you and your life
That takes what's wrong and makes it right


I'll die trying
I'll die trying
I'll die trying

Don't just call it quits, say there's no chance for you out there
I know you're at a crossroads where love doesn't seem to be fair
He made no effort to satisfy all your hopes and dreams
But if you'll give love another shot and look to me
I'll die trying

Hold on to me, show me your needs
I'll fly higher
Give what I can give as sure as I live I'll die trying
