Standing where I am now, standing up at all
I was used to feeling like I was never gonna see myself at the finish line
Hanging on two parts of me, hanging on at all
I was used to seeing no future in my sight line

Sometimes it feels like they want to remind me
Send all those villains after me

I’m not their hero
But that doesn’t mean that I wasn’t brave
I never walked the party line
Doesn’t mean that I was never afraid
I’m not your hero
But that doesn’t mean we’re not one in the same

Feeling like I am now lighting up the hall
I was used to standing in the shadow of a damaged heart
Learning all I know now losing all I did
I never used to feel like I’d be standing so far ahead

Sometimes it feels what I recovered you lost
Sending your peaceful loss to me

I’m not their hero
But that doesn’t mean that I wasn’t brave
I never walked the party line
Doesn’t mean that I was never afraid
I’m not your hero
But that doesn’t mean we’re not one in the same

Sometimes it feels like the side that I’m on
Plays the toughest hand, holds the longest stand
Sometimes it feels like I’m all that they’ve got
It’s so hard to know I’m not what they want

Sometimes it feels like the side that I’m on
Plays the toughest hand, holds the longest stand
Sometimes it feels like I’m all that they’ve got
It’s so hard to know I’m not what they want

I’m not their hero
But that doesn’t mean that I wasn’t brave
I never walked the party line
Doesn’t mean that I was never afraid
I’m not your hero
But that doesn’t mean we’re not one in the same
I do my best to walk the finest line
Til I’ve had all that I can take
