I, I wish I could swim
Like dolphins, like dolphins can swim
Though nothing will keep us together
We can beat them, forever and ever

Oh, we can be heroes just for one day
Oh, we can be heroes just for one day

I, I will be king
And you, you will be queen
Though nothing will drive us away

Oh, we can be heroes just for one day
Oh, we can be us just for one day

I, I can remember
Standing, standing by the wall
And the guns, shot above our heads
And we kissed, as though nothing could fall

And the shame, the shame was on the other side
Oh, we can beat them, forever and ever
Then we could be heroes just for one day

Songwriters
BOWIE, DAVID/ENO, BRIAN
