Janelle Monae – Heroes lyrics

I, I wish I could swim
Like the dolphins, like dolphins could swim
Though nothing, nothing will keep us together!
Keep, keep, keep us together!
Only he can beat them
Forever, ever and ever!
Oh, we can be heroes just for one day!~

I, I will be king
And you, oh you, you will be queen
Though nothing, nothing will drag them away
We can be heroes just for one day!
We can be heroes just for one day!
One day, hey, hey!

I, I can remember (I remember)
Standing by the wall (by the wall)
All the guns, all the guns shot above our head
And the kids have nothing to fall!
And the shade was on the other side
Oh, it can be them forever and ever!
We can be heroes just for one day,
Just for one day!
We, we can be heroes
Oh we, we can be heroes
Oh we, we can be heroes
Just for one day!
