"Heroes (David Bowie cover)" as written by Laurie Jones and Lothar Krell....
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
For ever and ever
What d'you say

Koenntest Du schwimmen
Wie Delphine
Delphine es tun
Niemand gibt uns eine Chance
Doch wir koennen siegen
Fuer immer und immer
Und wir sind dann Helden
Fuer einen tag

Ich bin dann Koenig
Und Du
Du Koenigin
Auch wenn sie
Unschlagbar scheinen
Werden wir Helden
Fuer einen Tag
Wir sind dann wir
An diesem Tag

Ich glaub' das zu traeumen
die Mauer
Im Ruecken war kalt
Schuesse peitschen die Luft
Doch wir kuessen
Als ob nichts geschieht
Und die Scham fiel auf ihre Seite
Oh, wir koennen sie schlagen
Fuer alle Zeiten
Dann sind wir Helden
Nur diesen Tag
Dann sind wir Helden
Dann sind wir Helden
Dann sind wir Helden
Nur diesen Tag
Dann sind wir Helden

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

    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.
