I, I wish you could swim
Like the dolphins, like dolphins can swim
Though nothing, nothing will keep us together
We can beat them for ever and ever
Oh, we can be heroes just for one day

I, I will be king and you, you will be queen
Though nothing will drive them away
We can be heroes just for one day
We can be us just for one day

I, I can remember
(I remember)
Standing by the wall
(By the wall)

And the guns shot above our heads
(Over our heads)
And we kissed as though nothing could fall
(Nothing could fall)

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

We're nothing and nothing will help us
Maybe we're lying then you better not stay
But we could be safer just for one day
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
Just for one day, oh, just for one day

Songwriters
BOWIE, DAVID / ENO, BRIAN / LINDBLAD, ALESSANDRO / NILSSON, TOVE EBBA ELSA
