Heroes Lyrics Meanings


Heroes Lyrics

The kids in the hundreds tomorrow
Will march through the door
They're fighting someone else's war
They'll have so many stories to tell
In exchange for a hero's farewell

I wish I could
I wish I could make you return
And what if i'll never discern
As you walk to the toll of the bell
You'll be fighting for our heaven with hell

And you don't understand
Why no one else can see
Your blood on me
And my blood on you
But to make you bleed
The only thing I wouldn't do And you know heroes aren't meant to survive
So much harder to love when alive
Walk with the devil in your head
You would think you were better off dead

Where can you go?
We fight we earn
We never learn
And through it all
The hero falls

I wish there was a way
To give you a hand to hold
You don't have to die in your glory
To never grow old

Heroes Meanings & Interpretations

Sorry if this makes no sense. MIKA wrote this song about a cab driver he once met who told MIKA about how he had fought in war. He said that he had no physical injuries in the war so everyone said he was lucky, but they didn't understand that he was broken on the inside from the things he'd seen. I think that's where the line "And you don't understand why no one else can see" came from. The man told MIKA that he sometimes wanted to die because of how traumatized he was which i guess is where the line "Walk with the devil in your head, You would think you were better off dead" came from.
