He drives into the city
And works extra hard all day
He finishes up early
So he can get away.

'Cause there's a blue-eyed kid on second base
Wants Dad to watch him play
And Daddy knows he's waiting
So he hurries on his way.

Chorus:
'Cause you know heroes come in every shape and size
Making special sacrifices for others in her lives
No one gives them medals, the world don't know their names
But in someone's eyes, they're heroes just the same.

She rocks her crying baby
In the hours before dawn
She whispers words of hope to help her
Husband to hold on.

She takes time for the children
Making sure they know she cares
She's more then just a Momma
She's the answer to their prayers.

Chorus:
'Cause you know heroes come in every shape and size
Making special sacrifices for others in her lives
No one gives them medals, the world don't know their names
But in someone's eyes, they're heroes just the same.

No, I don't pretend to know you
But I bet it's save to say
There's someone out there somewhere looking
Up to you today.

And they see everything you do
Except for you mistakes
You may not think you measure up
But you got all it takes.

No one gives them medals
The world don't know their names
But in someone's eyes
They're heroes just the same.

Yea, in someone's eyes
They're heroes just the same
Talking 'bout heroes
Special kind of heroes
No ordinary heroes...
