Melissa Manchester - Wish We Were Heroes Lyrics




Somewhere down the line
We found the rhythm in the rhyme
Like two notes played out of time
Now we don't fit in the score, no, no

Somehow through the years
We let the laughter turn to tears
And all those feelings once so clear
Just aren't here anymore, anymore
And sometimes I...

Wish we were heroes in the setting sun
Ride off together when the story's done
No sad goodbyes, no alibis
Just two heroes waiting from the back of a train
Two heroes never feeling all of the pain
The heartbreaking rending
Of knowing the ending is here
And it's time for goodbye
But so much for heroes
We could never be heroes
Because heroes don't cry

Someone used to say
Love is a wind that goes astray
Stirs the heart then blows away
Oh, but who's to say, what makes it go
But you know, I...

Wish we were heroes in the setting sun
Ride off together when the story's done
No sad goodbyes, no alibis
Just two heroes waiting from the back of a train
Two heroes never feeling all of the pain
The heartbreaking rending
Of knowing the ending is here
And it's time for goodbye
But so much for heroes
We could never be heroes
Because heroes don't cry

And sometimes I
Wish we were heroes in the setting sun
(Heroes)
Ride off together when the story's done
(Oh, ride off together)
Just two heroes waiting from the back of a train
(Heroes)
Two heroes never feeling all of the pain

And sometimes I
Wish we were heroes in the setting sun
(Oh, ride off together)
Ride off together when the story's done
(I wish we were heroes)
Just two heroes waiting from the back of a train
(Heroes)
Two heroes never feeling all of the pain

    ganda ng music pati na ang view, naalala ko tuloy noong nag-iinsayo pa ako, sabi ko sa sarili ko "papadilim na ang kapaligiran, pero malayo pa ang aking uuwian" sarap talaga ng buhay siklista . . .

    My Father Austin Gravelding wrote this around 1978-1979. He is my writing influence and a genius songwriter. He is still writing some of the best songs he's ever done. Trying to fill big shoes someday!
