Sometimes I don't have the strength to fight the fall.
Sometimes I'm tired and just drop the ball.
When the earth beneath my feet's just shaky ground,
An' when I'm scared I'm gonna let the whole world down.

You breathe life into me,
Put me back on my feet.
Every time, you know exactly what I need.
An' when I lose control,
You take the wheel an' no-one knows:
Quietly you rescue me behind the scenes,
An' let me be the hero.

Some people think I'm strong an' calm an' in control,
Like I'm the one who stands his ground when the thunder rolls.
If they knew my secret, if they only knew the truth,
I would've run a thousand times if it hadn't been for you.

You breathe life into me,
Put me back on my feet.
Every time, you know exactly what I need.
An' when I lose control,
You take the wheel an' no-one knows:
Quietly you rescue me behind the scenes,
An' let me be the hero.

When I'm down on my knees,
Prayin' to Heaven for some peace,
I'm always saved by the angel that God sent to me,
Right here next to me.

An' you breathe life into me,
Put me back on my feet.
Every time, you know exactly what I need.
An' when I lose control,
You take the wheel an' no-one knows:
Quietly you rescue me behind the scenes,
An' let me be the hero.
Yeah, you let me be the hero.
Oh, yeah.
