I heard a human voice who sang like no one else
I heard a proud lady singin' loud
Lived her life as she liked, didn't give a damn
But soon she found she was the underground and wasted

I watched her hitting notes as she strutted stage
Her body shook, oh, she did her stuff
She screamed and quake, give and take, maybe took too much
If you take the smooth, you gotta take the rough

Why do you have to die to be a hero
It's a shame a legend begins at its end
Why do you have to die if you're a hero
When there's still so many things to say unsaid

I heard a man's guitar electrify a crowd
Felt the sound shower 'round
He would take you with him where the music's been before
As you merge, power surge together

His music knew no limits if you were in it's wake
You had no choice, no, but hear its voice
And you would listen hypnotized, and in a dream
But once so strong survive, becomes weak

Why do you have to die to be a hero
It's a shame a legend begins at its end
Why do you have to die if you're a hero
When there's still so many things to say unsaid

If you gaze across timeless years
You'll find them always there
And many Gods will join the list
Compiled with dying care

Hungry mouths are waiting
To bite the hand that feeds
And so the living dead
Carry on immortal deeds

I saw on silver screen an actor's rise to fame
But fast car users lose
A legend's born from death and that is such a shame
'Cause every year new ones appear

Why do you have to die to be a hero?
It's a shame a legend begins at its end
Why do you have to die if you're a hero?
When there's still so many things to say unsaid
