TV On The Radio – Heroes lyrics

I wish you
Could swim.
Like the dolphins-
Like dolphins
Can swim.
Though nothing-
Nothing will keep
Us together.
We can beat them
For ever and ever.
Oh we can be heroes
Just for one day.

I-I will be king.
And you
You will be queen.
Though nothing
Will drive
Them away.
We can be heroes
Just for one day.
We can be us
Just for one day.

I-I can remember
(I remember)
Standing-by the wall
(by the wall).
And the guns
Shot above our heads
(over our heads).
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.
Then we could
Be heroes
Just for one day.
We can be heroes (3X)
Just for one day.
We can be heroes.

We're nothing
And nothing
Will help us.
Maybe we're lying
Then you
Better not stay.
But we
Could be safer
Just for one day.
Oh, oh, oh, ohhh-oh
Oh, oh, oh
Just for one day.
Just for one day.
