(Verse 1)
There's a hero if you look inside your heart,
You don't have to be afraid of what you are.
And There's an answer, if you reach into your soul,
And the sorrow that you know will melt away.

(Chorus)
And then a hero comes along,
With the strength to carry on.
And you cast your fears aside,
And you know you can survive.
So, when you feel like hope is gone,
Just Look inside you and be strong.
And you'll finally see the truth,
That a hero lies in you...

(Verse 2)
It's a long road, when you face the world alone;
No one reaches out a hand for you to hold...
You can find love if you search within yourself
And then the emptiness you felt will disappear...

(Chorus)
And then a hero comes along
With the strength to carry on
And then you cast your fears aside
And you know you can survive.
So, when you feel like hope is gone
Look inside you and be strong
And then you'll finally see the truth
See That a hero lies in you.

(Bridge)
Lord knows dreams are hard to follow,
But don't let anyone tear them away.
Just hold on, and there will be tomorrow,
And In time you'll find the way.

(Chorus)
And then a hero comes along,
With the strength to carry on.
And then you cast your fears aside
And you know you can survive.
So, when you feel like hope is gone,
Look inside you and be strong.
And you'll finally see the truth,
That a hero lies in you.
That a hero lies in you...

    I love this song. I mean not just the beat, but the soul and heart Mariah puts into this. I have never heard this song. At least not untill the teacher introduced it to our class, and she said we had to do it as our graduation song. It has such meaning. That you are ready to move on and that you can and will find your meaning in life. As a future journalist I have to say Mariah definatly has a bright and meaningful future. I just! Oh my gosh I can't even explain it. My life i hard okay. And whenever I hear this song it reminds me that I am special and I will get througgh it.

    This song is very, very beautiful. Probably the absolute best song that Mariah has ever done followed by Always be my baby. She clearly put her all into this song and it clearly comes from the heart. She needs to stop doing hiphop and return to her roots. Mariah could have been the queen of pop had she stuck to it and didn't have her "Glitter" freakout. If she returned to pop and completely dropped rap and hip hop she would be back on top where nobody could beat her. This kind of stuff is what people need to listen to today, not Katy Perry, Justin Bieber or Riahnna. I miss when aaliyah, Mariah, mj, Whitney and others dominated the radio.

    I this world there's a lot of people truly we can admire like Dr. Jose Protacio Rizal Mercado Alonzo Y. Realonda (for being so heroic fighting for country and countrymen), Mother Theresa(for having different kaind of passion in serving God and for having deep love in serving God's people),our Parents( for all the support from our first birth til our dying days and for all the effort they've done just to give us better future, but for me above all our TRUE and IRREPLACEABLE HERO in our life is our ALMIGHTY GOD JESUS CHRIST. For He was the one who crucified at the cross just to save us alla nd cleance us from our unrighteousness and inequities. God is certified hero that He gave us his life in order for us to live again.

    Lord,

    I thank you and I love you for all your wondrous dids. For me you are my life and my salvation. Truly nothing compares to the promise you have for us. Lord you are more beautiful than silver, more costly than gold, more precious than silver there's nothing i desire compares with you .
