I came by today to see you
I just had to let you know
If I knew the last time that I held you was the last time
I'd have held you, and never let go

Oh, it's kept me awake nights, wondering
I lie in the dark, just asking why
I've always been told
You won't be called home
Untill it's your time

I guess heaven was needing a hero
Somebody just like you
Brave enough to stand up
For what you believe
And follow it through
When I try to make it make sense in my mind
The only conclusion I come to
Is heaven was needing a hero
Like you

I rember the last time I saw you
Oh, you held your head up proud
I laughed inside
When I saw how you were standing out in the crowd
Your such a part of who I am
Now that part will just be void
No matter how much I need you now
Heaven needed you more

Cause heaven was needing a hero
Somebody just like you
Brave enough to stand up
For what you believe
And follow it through
When I try to make it make sense in my mind
The only conclusion I come to
Is heaven was needing a hero
Like you

Is Heaven was needing a hero
and that's you

    This means that when a person loses a loved one that heaven is the place that this loved one will be going. This means that this loved one is an hero and heaven needed thiis loved one

    This is the most beautiful song ever written. It's meaning is all the more beautiful... It reminds me of a friend of mine that passed away from drunk driving last year, he was my hero and he was such a part of who i am and always will be.

    This is totally a song i think of everyday. Ever since my grand father died. I want him here so bad but i know oviously heaven needed him more. This song so describes him. She wants this person back but knows there was somewhere else he was needed more. The only thing that makes it easy for her is to know he is in heaven.
