"Heroes (David Bowie cover)" as written by Laurie Jones and Lothar Krell....
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, forever 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, forever 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 can remember (I remember)
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
Oh, 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
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
Oh-oh-oh-ohh, oh-oh-oh-ohh, just for one day

    General CommentWhat?! Heroes "ain't that good of a song originally"??

    A few points to make:

    1) That sentence doesn't even make sense!
    2) Heroes by David Bowie is one of the best songs ever. Ok, maybe you don't like it but the general consensus is that its a 'classic'. Its up there with Imagine, Sittin on the Dock of the Bay, Satisfaction, etc. Which must be kept in mind for point 3.
    3) This is a terrible version of the song. And I am massive fan of Oasis. Its for this reason that i can see they should never have gone near it. Its too big a song. Even Liam was sensible enough to disown it.
    4) I bet you probably think that Ocean Colour Scene are better than the Beatles.

    General CommentWhy don't you calm down. Anyways, they're great songs, but oddly enough I like the Wallflowers version best. Strange huh?

    General CommentI think Noel's voice doesn't fit with this song. I love Oasis, it's just my advice...

    General CommentAn excellent finish to one of my favorite singles. And I do think Noel's voice is a bit off, but the guitar work is great. The original is unbeatable though, it ranks in my top ten favorite songs ever. David Bowie's vocals are hypnotizingly good.
