Kiwanuka, Michael - Hero (Intro) Lyrics

I won't change my name
No matter what they call me
I lost my only friend
And I'll grieve you till the end

Am I a hero?
Am I a hero now?
To die a hero
Is all that we know now

    Jan Slowhand

    zadziwiające wprost jak wiele przeróżnych piosenek sprzed lat ludzie słyszą w twórczości tego wspaniałego artysty


    @Jan Slowhand

    Correct me if I'm wrong but I think the video showcases the relationship between blacks and whites and how fucked up it is

  18. Samuel Frigere

    Am I a hero?
    Am I a hero now?
    Am I a hero?
    Am I a hero now?
    Please don't shoot me down
    I love you like a brother
    It's on the news again
    I guess they killed another
    Am I a hero?
    Am I a hero now?
    To die a hero
    Is all that we know now
    Oh, we all get told to go along
    Oh, we know it's all for show
    We know, we know
    Am I a hero?
    Am I a hero now?
    To die a hero
    Is all that we know now
    Am I a hero?
    A fallen hero now?
    Hear my sin Lord
    Speak no evil now
    Am I a hero?
    My gun to reload now
    A broken people
    There go a hero now

    People that stand up for something that goes against the status quo get targeted. Jfk For example.

  59. Eric Winslow

    Not about race. Get your heads out of the gutter sheesh.

  60. Eric Winslow

    I thought this was a white dude singing. This guy is good. This song comes on so many fronts and can mean so many things. Like Soldiers coming back from war and you know the suicide rate. Just lyrically itself is epic. A broken hero now.

    Eric Winslow

    All music comes from the soul.

    SUMMER 2019?

    SUMMER 2018
    Devastating forest fires in Spain, Portugal and California claim more than 200 PEOPLE’S lives, thousands of PETS, properties and WILDLIFE destroyed.

    SUMMER 2017
    The horrific fire at the London Grenfell high-rise apartment building highlights the urgent need for all people across the globe to be trained in the FireBurnDoctor's DSNB technology that immediately eradicates the intense pain and suffering experienced from burn injuries. There is enough proof on the FBD website documenting the "Instant Burn Recovery" experienced by more than 2000 people from 58 countries. All these people did was make a two-minute phone call or send a simple text message with a picture of the burn victims (ANIMALS INCLUDED) within the first 30 minutes of burn injury to ask the FireBurnDoctor for help. The FBD treatment is a non-medical, non-therapeutic, non-physical intervention from a distance that does not interfere with standard medical treatment. Results include elimination of pain within minutes, disappearance of redness, blisters and marks on the skin within hours, no scarring, no grafting, and no cost. People are able to return to work in record time. This "Instant Burn Recovery" technology is called Distant Subliminal Neuro-Bypass (DSNB), and the FireBurnDoctor (FBD) calls himself the "Bio-Matrix Hacker." Anyone can be trained in this advanced technology which takes only minutes to implement and is free. Media no longer have any justification to ignore this most valuable and amazing FireBurnDoctor story. Global TV networks must now be forced by public demand to broadcast some of the documented cases of "Instant Burn Recovery" so that people worldwide know that anyone can get immediate relief when they are burned and that they too can be trained by the FBD team to take care of themselves, their children, and anyone else who is ever burned by fire. After global media coverage results in widespread public interest, the FBD team of volunteers will train teams of people all over the world, for free, in their effort to eradicate the suffering, death and disfigurement that results from burn injuries. The devastating statistics on burn victims worldwide is far worse than those suffering from AIDS, yet there is almost nothing being done to eliminate the damages caused by burns. The FireBurnDoctor's Burn Eradication Project eliminates the scourge of burns worldwide. Do your part today by sending this article to media reporters as well as to your entire online network. Anyone can get burned any time, including reporters. Do them a favor and pass on the FBD phone number with a link to the FBD website. +1 818 332 6445 (call or text within 30 minutes of a burn) REPORTERS! DO YOUR PART! Don't just "cover" a Burn story, Call or text a photo of the burn victims. Then video the extraordinary results. The FireBurnDoctor is the World's First Public - Remote Doing Protocol to erase the pain and injury from severe burns INSTANTLY, anywhere in the World from a distance for FREE. RUSH - The Most Valuable film you will see this year. To save burn victims and much more !!! It's PUBLIC and it's POWER !!!
    RUSH - Award-winning Movie - extraordinary REMOTE DOING
    RUSH is in two parts / halves, watch it ALL.

  76. Ferdiana Pbi

    Robbe? Sander? 😆

  77. Te EBa

    Robbe smiling after coming out to Jens ☹🖤

  78. Ash raf


  79. Rodrigo Andres Jara Burgos

    Sounds like silent hill 2


    Yeah, the same chord progression as All Along the Watchtower but the song carries on into a new vibe.... cool,

    Murray Mitchell

    He's clearly influenced by it both musically and lyrically. Everyone is influenced by something but he's not ripping it off like many. Shame great artists like this aren't getting the attention of the mainstream.

  81. Aziza Funky

    amazing 😍

  85. ofer arnon

    this dude is just getting better. its incredible

  86. Donovan Dunlap

    I like this.

  87. paula jones

    Even better live. Saw him last week in Bristol amazing.

  88. Jas Bataille

    This resonates with me on a deep level. Although I am not black and could never pretend to understand the struggle of black people, I learned to be a musician with African people. My dad played percussion in the Chicago Art Ensemble in the 70's when they went to France. He then helped some members of the Black Panthers to enter France. He gave job to a great man who was researched by the police all over Europe... I can only imagine how hard it was for those people to trust him... and for him to see fake white helpers... He only talked about it once, about this guy who had to knock out two policemen to get to a gig... And it still continue to this day... why? I don't know... all that we want is to be human, all of us

  90. Mark Tanteo

    listening to this while i play Red Dead Redemption 2 on PC, perfect timing

  93. 1_Cannot_Simply_Create_An_Original_Username

    I'm loving the spaghetti western style guitar, as well as the fantastic vocals!

  94. Vincenzo Ippolito

    A demostration that Laura Pausini's (E ritorno da te) + Jimi Hendrix's cover (All along the watchtower) can became something else. Music is wonderful for that!

    Vale do Paraìso

    Io mi fermerei a Jimi Hendrix

  95. R N

    Every now and again, YouTube pulls through with amazing recommendations. This is one of them.


    R N The trick is to listen to as many different styles as possible. This confuses youtube. It will only come up with good recommendations when its confused. ;)
