Heroes Lyrics
By Daniel Cherniske

1st Verse:

I’m trying to remember the hope in a child’s eyes, the same kind i’ve got locked up deep inside. The fire that burns through the darkest night, its in every single breath of us now. As we remember our song and sing out loud, even if our voice break it’ll turn a crowd. Because you're beautiful oh please know now, step into your power feet on bare ground.

Because when did we forget, this whole world is our mother, and how we wish to be treated is how to treat each other. We need to learn from the trees, rediscover the love between, all the interconnected pieces of this beautiful reality. Because I want my sisters to grow up to be heroes, and always drink clean water and know how their food grows. And we can regenerate, celebrate the beauty of this Earth, understand no separation, realize that we are worth, all the blood, sweat, tears and rebirth. Acknowledging our pain and remembering where we came from.

Chorus:

Because I want you to be happy, and I want you to be loved, and I want you to never forget your divinity, and feel at home looking up at the stars above.

2nd verse:

So please do this for me, and do this for your family, plant seed wherever you be, hug trees and read. Breathe in when the pain cuts deep in your heart, just like the sun we’ll rise again because this love will never part. So sing joy to the herds the birds the fish in the sea, the child in the slums and the father raising his gun of peace is possible, but first bellies must be fed, and everyone deserves to sleep in the same bed. But we can’t move too fast, put horse in front of carriage, its a marriage of the old ways, the new days, and courage.

Because I want my brothers to have a shoulder they can cry on, and walk with humble hearts as we march onward to zion. Redefine wealth, to be the health of our communities, our bodies and the way we protect innocence and beauty. Its your truest fullest expression of love thats really going to help, so get down with your beautiful self.

Chorus:

Because I want you to be happy, and I want you to be loved, and I want you to never forget your divinity, and feel at home looking up at the stars above.

Refrain:

Because I want my sisters to grow up to be heroes, and always drink clean water and know how their food grows. And we can regenerate, celebrate the beauty of this Earth, understand no separation, realize that we are worth, all the blood, sweat, tears and rebirth. Acknowledging our pain and remembering where we came from.
