lyrics

VERSE1
Once I was lost, as lost can be
Not knowing where to go, no one looking for me
Like a possession in the lost and found
you picked me up and turned my life around

CHORUS
So why would you ever call me a hero?
Did I do anything you wouldn't do?
You had an emergency and I took the opportunity
to do the things that friends are supposed to
So Don't Call Me a Hero, 'cause my hero is you.

VERSE2
So I'm sorry for taking it this way
but how could you say that I'm the one who saved the day?
'Cause if it weren't for me knowing you
my so-called-hero days would all be through.

CHORUS

BRIDGE
Since knowing you I'm feeling stronger
Running faster than I ever have before.
Go any distance, I'll go longer.
Tell me who could ask for more?

INTRO TO CHORUS
So if you ever need my help again
Consider it a favor to a friend

CHORUS2
Why would you ever call me a hero?
Did I do anything you wouldn't do?
You had a calamity and I took the opportunity
to do the things that friends are supposed to
So Don't Call Me a Hero...

CHORUS
