We can be Heroes

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 just for one day

And you, you can be 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 keep us together
We could steal time just for one day
We can be Heroes for ever and ever
What d’you say?

I, I wish you could swim
Like the dolphins, like dolphins can swim
Though nothing, nothing will keep us together
We can beat them for ever and ever
Oh we can be Heroes just for one day

I, I will be king
And you, you will be queen
Though nothing will drive them away
We can be Heroes just for one day
We can be us just for one day

I, I remember
Standing by the wall
The guns shot above our heads
And we kissed as though nothing could fall
And the shame was on the other side
Oh we can beat them for ever and ever
Then we can be Heroes just for one day

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.
