He's lived as long as he possibly can
Given the circumstance.
Because he's protected himself from the world
He never gave it a chance, and he says

Here in my security
I've put a limit on my self-potential and my possibility.

She's seen these walls and they never change
Everything's in its place.
Her relationships so neatly arranged
Down to religion and race, and she says

Here in my security
I don't make a move unless my friends approve, I do what's expected of me.

And as I grow older, and there's so much that I do not know...
I'm drawn to those who are older, and go where no one dared to go.

And I Sleep, and I dream of the person I might have been, and I'll be free again
And I Speak, like someone who's been to the highest peaks, and back again
And I Swear, that my grass is greener than anyone's, until I believe again
Then I Wake, and the dream fades away and I face the day and I realize
That there's got to be some hero in me, there's got to be some hero in me,
there's got to be some hero in me, there's got to be some hero in me.

They've been suppressing their every desire,
They do nothing on a whim
She's lost her sparkle and he's lost the fire
Their future looks very dim, and I say

Here in my security
I've simply let myself go out, develop a cold dependency

And as I grow older, and so many places that I have not been...
Time is tapping my shoulder, I hope its never too late to begin.

And I Sleep, and I dream of the person I might have been, and I'll be free again
And I Speak, like someone who's been to the highest peaks, and back again
And I Swear, that my grass is greener than anyone's, until I believe again
Then I Wake, and the dream fades away and I face the day and I realize
That there's got to be some hero in me, there's got to be some hero in me,
there's got to be some hero in me, there's got to be some hero in me.
