Depeche Mode – Heroes (Highline Sessions Version) lyrics
I, I will be King
And you, you will be my Queen
Though nothing, will keep us together
We can beat them, for ever and ever
We can be heroes, just for one day

And you, you can be mean
And I, I'll drink all the time
'Cause we're lovers, and that is a fact
Yes we're lovers, and that is that

Though nothing, will keep us together
We can beat them, just for one day
We can be heroes, just for one day

I, I wish you could swim
Like the dolphins, like dolphins can swim
Oh nothing, will drive them away
We can beat them, just for one day
We can be heroes, for ever and ever
What you say?

I, I will be King
And you, will be my Queen
Though nothing, can keep us together
We can beat them, for ever and ever
We can be heroes, just for one day

I, I can remember (I remember)
Standing, by the wall (by the wall)
And the guns, shot above our heads (all around us)
And we kissed, as though nothing could fall (nothing could fall)
And the shame, was on the other side
Oh, we can beat them, forever and ever
We can be heroes, just for one day
What you say?

We can be heroes
Just for one day
We can be heroes
Though nothing, will keep us together
Maybe we're lying, then you better not stay
We can be heroes, just for one day

We can be heroes
Just for one day
Just for one day...

    When Depeche Mode recorded a number of songs on New York City's High Line public park ahead of the release of their latest LP, Spirit, one of the numbers they tackled was an impassioned cover of David Bowie's enduring hit "Heroes." They've made the tune a staple of their current tour, and now they're releasing a video for the tune to mark the tune's 40th anniversary, on September 23rd in 2017.
    "'Heroes' is the most special song to me at the moment," singer Dave Gahan said in a statement. "Bowie is the one artist who I've stuck with since I was in my early teens. His albums are always my go-to on tour and covering 'Heroes' is paying homage to Bowie."
