"Heroes" (Live, Glastonbury, 2000) - Lyrics

You, you will mean
And I, I'll drink all the time
‘Cause we're lovers
And that is a fact
Yes we're lovers
And that is that

Though nothing
Will drive them away
We can beat them, for ever and ever
We can be Heroes
Just for one day
What d'you say?

I, I wish you could swim
Like the dolphins, like the dolphins can swim
Though nothing
Will keep us together
We can beat them, for ever and ever
Oh we can be Heroes
Just for one day
What d'you say?

I, I will be king
And you, you will be queen
Though nothing
Will drive them away
We can beat them
Just for one day
We can be Heroes
For ever and ever

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
Is there on the other side
We can beat them
For ever and ever
We can be Heroes
Just for one day

What d'you say?
I say

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-ohh
Oh-oh-oh-ohh
Oh-oh-oh-ohh
Oh-oh-oh-ohh
