It was so easy to love you
I knew it would end up so hard
So difficult to leave you
And the thought of nothing barred
But still I wound up moving because I can
Because it's never fast enough
When you're in love with a rambling man

Yes moving ain't fast enough
So I packed my bags and ran
Ran into some new music and people
And places I've never been
Then I fell back in love with you
And I was really unarmed
Just wish you could have left me
A little less harmed

You don't want to be a hero
But you don't have much choice
You've been a hero to me
Before I ever heard your voice

Now I really need protection
'Cause my lover's ears are soft
And close together, and hard of hearing
He'll hear this song and he'll know all along
There was nothing he could do
Yeah, 'cause he'll never compare to you
Hero

I'll take the kisses blown in the wind
And the names you've given me for what I've been
But I won't take any more pictures
So that maybe you would see
What you were never meant to know
It still feels like losing to me

You don't want to be a hero
But you don't have much choice
You've been a hero to me
Before I ever heard your voice

Feels like I lost the best friend I never had
Or some other shade of truth
All I know is I'll be first in line at the kissing booth
