Tegan And Sara - I'm Not Your Hero Lyrics

Standing where I am now, standing up at all
I was used to feeling like I was never gonna see myself at the finish line
Hanging on to parts of me, hanging on at all
I was used to seeing no future in my sight line

Sometimes it feels like they wanna remind me
Send all those villains after me

I'm not their hero
But that doesn't mean that I wasn't brave
I never walked the party line
Doesn't mean that I was never afraid
I'm not your hero
But that doesn't mean we're not one and the same

Feeling like I am now lighting up the hall
I was used to standing in the shadow of a damaged heart
Learning all I know now, losing all I did
I never used to feel like I'd be standing so far ahead

Sometimes it feels what I recovered you lost
Sending your peaceful loss to me

I'm not their hero
But that doesn't mean that I wasn't brave
I never walked the party line
Doesn't mean that I was never afraid
I'm not your hero
But that doesn't mean we're not one and the same

Sometimes it feels like the side that I'm on
Plays the toughest hand, holds the longest stand
Sometimes it feels like I'm all that they've got
It's so hard to know I'm not what they want

Sometimes it feels like the side that I'm on
Plays the toughest hand, holds the longest stand
Sometimes it feels like I'm all that they've got
It's so hard to know I'm not what they want

I'm not their hero
But that doesn't mean that I wasn't brave
I never walked the party line
Doesn't mean that I was never afraid
I'm not your hero
But that doesn't mean we're not one and the same
I do my best to walk the finest line
Till I've had all that I can take

    Ughh they need to be main stream!! they're music is too good!

  38. Ana

    I don't think that one can know just how good they are until they see them live. Yes, they're that good.

  39. jjm2412

    can you guys believe they aren't considered mainstream! they are way better than most mainstream singers and have way more songs than most mainstream singers. it's unbelievable


    jjm2412 They've outlasted dozens & dozens of 'mainstream' artists who came & went. They've built their band over 15 years & are truly inspiring.

    Samantha Cifelli

    jjm2412 I’m glad they are not .. keeps them special and sacred

    Tony Tonytony

    Come on, now!!! I first bought their CD, This Business of Art, back in their garage alt rock days in 2,000. Nearly every song was good. I've followed them ever since. I can't be the only one.


    This Business of Art is not the first cd...


    ​@ThePeachJames He didn't say it was. He clearly said it was the first of their CDs he bought...

    Love this song!!  It can apply to so many people, in so many different life situations... totally did for me....

  67. Tony Tonytony

    There are a lot of comments saying that they have never heard of this band. Listen to their songs "My number" (awesome) and "All you got" from their "Business of Art" album. In fact the whole album was awesome. It was released in 2000, and back then, I went through 2 CD'S of it (those were the little plastic discs they use to play music on in ancient history). These girls have been the bomb for a LONG time.

    sorry for bat english

    now I feel old ;_;

    Crystal Lunt

    +Tony Tonytony I discovered this group about a month ago, and am loving them.

    Christopher Cox

    KEEP LISTENING!! Go deep into their discography, because I honestly can not tell you- there are just a million songs by them that are FCKING INCREDIBLE. Just to throw some out there listen to- "The Con", "Take me Anywhere", "Monday, Monday, Monday", "Love Type thing", "Alligator", "Superstar", "Dark Come Soon", "I hear Noises", "I'll Take the Blame", pretty much every song they have written, including all unreleased tracks, are gorgeous works of art.

  68. Sandy Jiang

    Beth brought me here!!!

    Reanna's Reflections

    Oh i thought maybe it was like a show lol😂

    Mad Macer

    @Reanna AndersoN Might be. I have no idea. I just guessed that it is a person...

    Sandy Jiang

    She's one of the most famous YouTubers. Search Bethany Mota anywhere and you'll find her

    Reanna's Reflections

    Ohh i know who she is.

    Samie Gurung

    Same. Thanks to beth and her spotify :)

  70. Haley W

    Klára Němcová

    +Haley W Thank you very much -_- :'(

  71. hotgirlsarehot

    Amazing song. So catchy, sexy, upbeat and addictive.

  72. Jeannette Marshall

    My new favorite song :o) 

  73. Claudio Forte

    Do you know this new remix of I Was A Fool by Mr. Melo D? Its awesome!!!

  74. Cactus Llieda

    Simple, people bought into the idea that we need free trade to progress as a society, and that has replaced free human beings. Doubt we ever had enough free thinkers to carry the promise of democracy anyway but from here on it is definitely all downhill. Caring more about some undefined collective goal instead of real people is what brought about the downfall of all so called "great" civilizations. Or where they really that great?


    Huh ...? ? ?

  75. Rainorshine 123

    Great song, great album!!!

  76. Paul Abbott

    2 years went by,    How many more years if ever untill we meet?

  77. Cherry_Bomb

    hey i'm from calgary and i"m so sorry for this trite dishwater.

    Shawn G

    Where's Calgary


    Stephanie Victoria

    Where is it


    Shawn G

    I was going to tell you but then I saw the smiley face


  78. Charlie Liu

    Awesome!!!!I want to know how they make their voice sound electronic . Wish I had their autograph!!!

  79. Vito

    Anyone notice this song's got a pretty similar chorus melody as lady gaga's bad romance? Nice track, though.


    You are right when i was in my car, i heard this song and i otight it was bad romance XDD!

  80. zee zmme

    I like this best as the live acoustic. I think it's the singular voice. 'still like the overall feel, but I like the value of the singular voice.

  81. Star Hunters

    love love

  82. Marguerite Harlan

    I love this song. It's a must listen before I go to work. I have a lot of responsibility that rests on my shoulders and this song helps me to power thru those tough days. And after a hard day. It's played a lot!!!

  83. TheGoother99

    FUUUUUCCCCKKKK snacktime ads!

  84. Kameron Hood

    Am I the only one that has a hard time watching the audio-only videos? When listening to them, I just want to look at them while doing it, lol. They're so damn beautimus.

    Jenna I.

    Well, the only reason they make audio videos is so people can listen to them in the background of doing something. Your question is like asking "Am I the only one who has a hard time listening to music videos?"

    Kameron Hood

    I understand why they make them. Not like I was trying to make some profound statement, just talking about how hot they are.


    If you have a Penis , there not interested ...lol

    Alexander Hamilton

    they need more fan vids or music vids of them because i feel the same way

  85. Anthony DeAngelo

    Their voices and harmonies are as good or better than ever... Even the newest album sounds great live and they are still very acoustic and in tune with their audience... Hearthrob got them more noticed in the States, so that's pretty awesome... I wonder where they go from here? I believe this was their last contracted Album for the Warner Label....Hmmm!!

  86. learieify

    i was really hoping this song wouldn't be from them when I first heard this song on the radio. It kinda just ruined the song. Idk why, I don't like the whole Tegan and Sara thing. I just can't understand the hype.


    uh.. so you liked the song until you found out it was them? how does that make sense?

  87. JoshuaGuzz

    This song is the center of my universe 

  88. Amy Webb

    I NEEEEED  to see them live! 

  89. John Justin Lim

    This is my current favorite song!!!

  90. Levi Turnbull

    You two are awesome!! Keep up the good work I hope to see you guys in concert in London in late July..

  91. Yael Tandler

    מהמם!!!!! זו ההפתעה הכי מגניבה ever

  92. Debby Quigley

    I "LOVE" their music.  They are very talented twins.  Keep up the good music Tegan and Sara.

  93. Reuben Barra

    This song is really good to listen to over and over again..

  94. jordan bodkin

    i wish they would stop using so much of what ever makes there voices sound electronic, and go back to more acoustic. i still like this music but i have to admit i like there old stuff better.

    ash k

    @jordan bodkin To me its not a major change. I have been following there music since Under Feet like ours, their first album. They write songs the same way and the genre may have changed slightly but its been a nice transition. Its annoying when people say they don't like their new stuff because then you wouldn't have liked their old stuff either because it was different. However it was still good, and they have always been considered Indie.


    I couldn't get into their older music. But this CD I think is fantastic, I like the different change.

    jordan bodkin

    yeah its something other people can like its just not personally my style of music.

    Kevin K.


    Pie Girl

    you like the older stuff cos you is old sis, they sound better in tune ;)

  95. Shane Ballantyne

    Please tell me you love me <3 

  96. anthonette02

    This song makes me feel good all the time. Amazing music!

  97. noahfoxx

    When this first came out I was like "oh maybe this is just like the On Directing of this album, I'm sure the other songs will sound different and better" and now that I've listened to the whole album this is the only song I like


    @Kevin andMeg Only thing free in the world ;)


    You seriously don't like closer?


    hate it.

    Kayliegh M

     Honestly I hated the whole album when I first heard it... but it's slowly grown a song or two on me. I guess I just liked their older stuff much more. I mean they're not bad, I'm not total fangirl raging about selling out etc it's just I preffered their old sound. :P

    Kevin K.

    You people have bad taste if you don't like this song lol....
