Heroes No More

This song is by Gentle Giant and appears on the album Civilian (1980).

They were standing there - they were so near, yet so far away
Were they so unreal? Just a dream of someone to be one day?

There was endless fame. They were heroes, now they're souvenirs
And through changing years I can still remember - no quite so clear

Heroes no more -
Stay with me still
I dream. I hope. I always will.

Now they're mine no more as they stand there in the glowing light
I see every face like my own, but that was another night

Now they're just a dream of the time known ever left to fall
Soon the game begins, but those heroes yours always to recall

Heroes no more -
Stay with me still
I dream. I hope. I always will.

Heroes no more -
Stay with me still
I dream. I hope. I always will.

They were standing there - they were so near, yet so far away
Were they so unreal? Just a dream of someone to be one day?

There was endless fame. They were heroes, now they're souvenirs
And through changing years I can still remember - no quite so clear
