He's lived as long as he possibly can
Given the circumstance
'Cause he's protected himself from the world
He never gave it a chance

And he says, "Here in my security
I've put a limit on my self-potential and my possibility"

She's seen these walls and they never change
Everything's in its place
Her relationships are neatly arranged
Down to religion and race

And she says, "Here in my security
I don't make a move unless my friends approve
I do what's expected of me"

And as I grow older
And there's so much that I do not know
I'm drawn to those who are bolder
And go where no one dare to go

And I sleep and I dream of the person I might have been
And I'll be free again
And I'll speak like someone who's been to the highest peaks
And back again

And I swear that my grass is greener than anyone's
'Til I believe again
Then I wake and the dream fades away and I face the day
And then realize that there's got to be some hero in me

There's got to be some hero in me
There's got to be some hero in me
There's got to be some hero in me

They've been suppressing their every desire
They do nothing on a whim
She's lost her sparkle and he's lost the fire
Their future looks very dim

And I say, "Here in my security
I've simply let myself go, I've developed a co-dependency"

And as I grow older
So many places that I've never been
Well, time's tappin' my shoulder
I hope it's never too late to begin, yeah

And I sleep and I dream of the person I might have been
And I'll be free again
And I'll speak like someone who's been to the highest peaks
And back again

And I swear that my grass is greener than anyone's
'Til I believe again
Then I wake and the dream fades away and I face my day
And then realize that there's got to be some hero in me

There's hero in you and in me
That sometimes it's so hard to see, yeah
There's got to be some hero in we
