Hero Submit Correct Lyrics

Another bad day, waste of promise
Are we really getting near?
Kick off your work shoes, rest a little
There's nothing for you to prove

Is it funny or is it sad
We leave and enter on our own?
Is it funny or is it sad
We never really know anyone?

I'm telling you my only secret, I'm so lonely she said
I'm waiting for a hero to save the day
A heaviness so relentless, an emptiness so monumental
I'm waiting for a hero to save the day

Across the sea I can hear you're tired
What is there left to see?

A smash of keyboard into their faces
A silence so satisfying
I can understand why you left your home
I can understand

I'm telling you my only secret, I'm so lonely she said
I'm waiting for a hero to save the day
A heaviness so relentless, an emptiness so monumental
I'm waiting for a hero to save the day

'Cause, we're twenty, twenty, twenty-two
Bleeding stars, stars and happy thoughts
'Cause, we're twenty, twenty, twenty-two
Waiting for the rain, the rain to stop

I'm a boy and you're a girl
What else is there in this world?
I can make you smile, I can make you laugh
What else is there in this world?

So take my hand and marry me
I'll make your branches sprout a green
I can make you smile, I can make you laugh
What else is there in this world?

And if you take my hand, I'll lead you to the promised land
Just call in sick, our time is now
I've got so much love to give, a vessel to receive it
Take the day off work
Our time is now, our time is now
