Hero In Me

This song is by Jeffrey Gaines and appears on the album Jeffrey Gaines (1992) and on the album Always Be (2001).

He's lived as long as he possibly can
Given the circumstance
'Cause 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 bolder
And go where no one dare to go

And I sleep and I dream of the person I might have been
Then 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
Till 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
I've developed a co-dependency

And as I grow older
So many places that I've never been
Time's tapping my shoulder
I hope it's never too late to begin

And I sleep and I dream of the person I might have been
Then 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
Till 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
