Skillet – Hero lyrics

[Verse 1]
I'm just a step away,
I'm a just a breath away,
Losin' my faith today.
(And fallin' off the edge today)
I am just a man,
Not superhuman.
(I'm not superhuman)
Someone save me from the hate.

[Pre-Chorus:]
It's just another war,
Just another family torn.
(And fallin' off the edge today)
Just a step from the edge,
Just another day in the world we live.

[Chorus:]
I need a hero!
To save me now, I need a hero.
(Save me now)
I need a hero!
To save my life, a hero will save me.
(Just in time)

[Verse 2]
I've gotta fight today,
To live another day,
Speakin' my mind today.
(My voice will be heard today)
I've gotta make a stand,
But I am just a man.
(I'm not superhuman)
My voice will be heard today!

[Pre-Chorus:]
It's just another war,
Just another family torn.
(My voice will be heard today)
It's just another kill,
The countdown begins to destroy ourselves.

[Chorus:]
I need a hero!
To save me now, I need a hero.
(Save me now)
I need a hero!
To save my life, a hero will save me.
(Just in time)
I need a hero!
To save my life, a hero will save me.
Just in time!

Save me just in time, save me just in time.

[Hook]
Who's gonna fight for what's right?
Who's gonna help us survive?
We're in the fight of our lives,
And we're not ready to die.
Who's gonna fight for the weak?
Who's gonna make 'em believe?
I've got a hero,
(I've got a hero)
Livin' in me!

I'm gonna fight for what's right,
Today I'm speaking my mind.
And if it kills me tonight,
I will be ready to die.
A hero's not afraid to give his life,
A hero's gonna save me just in time!

[Chorus:]
I need a hero!
To save me now, I need a hero.
(Save me now)
I need a hero!
To save my life, a hero will save me.
Just in time!

[Outro:]
I need a hero!
Who's gonna fight for what's right?
Who's gonna help us survive?
I need a hero!
Who's gonna fight for the weak?
Who's gonna make 'em believe?
I need a hero, I need a hero!
A hero gonna save me just in time!

    I don't believe in 'God', I doubt I ever will again. That's fine by me because I acted out the most when I believed, and cared about what people thought of me and my "God".

    I'm a girl who lost faith, not because of parents, or distance from god, but because I went to a catholic school for years, I didn't leave until 9th grade, my years there went like bullying, be rich, don't be individual, believe in god, be perfect.

    I'm not perfect and I never will be perfect!!! I'm a human being, I'm not coddled by my family, I'm pretty much invisiblle to everyone, to me this song is saying

    I'm losing my time, I'm losing my faith, but you can't see I'm not a superhuman, you can't see that I'm just a man, a regular human being, maybe I need my own hero. It talks about families splitting and fighting, and war. It's destruction, and we need a hero to save us from ourselves.

    I understand this group is classified as religious, and it's great that they are, I just don't have their lifestyle, I just need a hero to save me from myself, maybe that's why this song impacts me so much, The music we listen to shouldn't be dictated by religious standing, I know a lot of bands that definitely deserve more credit, Skillet is one of them, but BVB and TDG, MCR, PTV definitely deserve credit as well, Bands have saved my life, Hero just is a theme song for me. Songs have an impact on people.

    This is great. If we all come together in faith and encourage each other, that would be great. This song is helping me get through a tough time; I am having an unknown problem with my eye. I have always wondered if we can trust that the Bible is true. I have no proof except for what the Bible says. Can somebody help me with this? I would really appreciate it. I think we should start fighting and bring people faith. I can do a better job if I have proof that the Bible exists.

    My bf use to sing this so my meaning to it is when someone goes the extra mile to give their life for you or risk the relationship to keep it from your parents cause they don't like the person your dating or the don't you've currently been dating someone though they told you no. My folks never seem to get me and I feel this song represents me cause I've always been on the edge ever since I found out I was deaf in one ear. I've lost my faith in peoples "god". I mean if he was real why did everything that happen to me happen?

    I was gothic once and tried to sell my soul. I first heard this song at a youth camp after I had been saved the summer before. A drama group called clearvision drama had the song with a skit, so when I saw it, I was in spiritual warfare, gripping my jeans tightly, as tears rolled down my face. This song rocks, and it shows that no matter what you do, if you will trust in Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior, and repent, (turn away from your sins) you will be saved. For it is by grace you have been saved through faith, and this not of your selves. It is a gift from God. Least any man boast. Ephisians 2: 8. People get ready Jesus Christ is about to come back for His Church, don't get left behind.
