I'm just a step away
I'm a just a breath away
Losin' my faith today
(Fallin' off the edge today)

I am just a man
Not superhuman
(I'm not superhuman)
Someone save me from the hate

It's just another war
Just another family torn
(Falling from my faith today)
Just a step from the edge
Just another day in the world we live

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 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

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

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)

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

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 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)

    When i hear this song, my first thought is god. But, then once i get into the song, i think about my dad who would have given anything for my two brothers, my mom and i. Sadly, he isn't here to see this because he is with god. But, i always think of him because he would always protect me no matter the cost.

    That we may not have these super powers and that we're not gods, but we can do something to help and make a difference in someone else's life.

    This song is great, and that's coming from someone who absolutely hates hard rock. Jen's vocals are great, and he sounds fantastic. We all need a Jesus, who is the "Hero".

    Skillet is one of the best bands ever! I really, really like this song.
    (;
    A lot of people need a hero, me including. But who`s the hero going
    to be?
