RushNobody's Hero

I knew he was different, in his sexuality I went to his parties, as a straight minority It never seemed a threat to my masculinity He only introduced me to a wider reality As the years went by, we drifted apart When I heard that he was gone I felt a shadow cross my heart But he's nobody's Hero - saves a drowning child Cures a wasting disease Hero - lands the crippled airplane Solves great mysteries Hero - not the handsome actor Who plays a hero's role Hero - not the glamor girl Who'd love to sell her soul If anybody's buying Nobody's hero I didn't know the girl, but I knew her family All their lives were shattered In a nightmare of brutality They try to carry on, try to bear the agony Try to hold some faith In the goodness of humanity As the years went by, we drifted apart When I heard that she was gone I felt a shadow cross my heart But she's nobody's Hero - the voice of reason Against the howling mob Hero - the pride of purpose In the unrewarding job Hero - not the champion player Who plays the perfect game Not the glamor boy Who loves to sell his name Everybody's buying Nobody's hero As the years went by, we drifted apart When I heard that you were gone I felt a shadow cross my heart Hero
