about

Does anyone need an excuse to record a version of this song? Of course I was a big fan, but this is just a seminal tune that has endured, and still makes the hairs on the back of my neck stand up.

This version is a kind of "live-sound" experiment.

lyrics

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

I, I will be king
And you, you will be my queen
Though nothing will drive them away
We can beat them, forever and ever
We can be Heroes, just for one day

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

We can be Heroes
We can be Heroes
We can be Heroes
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

Oh-oh-oh-ohh
oh-oh-oh-ohh
oh-oh-oh-ohh
oh-oh-oh-ohh
just for one day

No autotune - EVER!

You may notice I use lots of harmonies in vocal overdubs, but it is always just my voice with maybe some echo and a little bit of reverb!!!!!
