We can be Heroes/ Just for one day/ We can be us/Just for one day
Of course we both know how this story begins
with dust on our tongues and the sting of old dreams,
while they want to know if we’ll lose or if we’ll win.
The invincible world, it just spins and it spins
until my Sunday clothes are wearing out their seams.
Of course, how else could this story begin?
What we know is what we’ve done over again
Haven’t we both been beaten enough to believe?
Let them figure out what we lose or we win.
If we don’t leave now, the doors will close in
And everything return to how it seems
And that can’t be how, how this begins.
There’s room for you here, between me and my sins
if we drive through the night, we could disappear clean
They’ll make their own stories, we lose or we win
Tonight, your voice is speaking to my skin,
assuring me that we can finally be redeemed.
We’ll never go back to where this begins.
We’ll burn so bright in losing that we’ll win.
