"Hero" as written by Mariah Carey, Walter N. Afanasieff and Bongani Nkosi....
No one sits with him, he doesnt fit in
But we feel like we do when we make fun of him
Cause you want to belong do you go along
Cause his pain is the price paid for you to belong
Its not like we hate him or want him to die
But maybe he goes home and thinks suicide
Or he comes back to school with a gun at his side
And a kindness from you might have saved his life

Heroes are made when you make a choice
You could be a hero
Heroes do whats right
You could be a hero, You might save a life
You could be a hero, You could join a fight
For whats right for whats right for whats right

No one talks to her, she feels so alone
Shes in too much pain to survive on her own
The hurt she cant handle overflows to a knife
She writes on her arm, wants to give up her life
Each day she goes on is a day that she's brave,
Fighting the lie that giving up is the way,
Each moment of courage her own life she saves when she throws the pills out, a hero is made

Heroes are made when you make a choice
You could be a hero
Heroes do whats right
You could be a hero, You might save a life
You could be a hero, You could join a fight
For whats right for whats right for whats right

No one talks to him about how he lives
He thinks that the choices he makes are just his
Doesn't know he's a leader with the way he behaves
And others will follow the choices hes made
He lives on the edge, hes old enough to decide
His brother who wants to be him is just nine
He can do what he wants because its his right
The choices he makes change a nine year olds life

Heroes are made when you make a choice
You could be a hero
Heroes do whats right
You could be a hero, You might save a life
You could be a hero, You could join a fight
For whats right for whats right for whats right

[Rap]
Little Micky Dee was the one in class who every day got totally harassed, This went on for years until he decided he would never shed another tear,So he walked through the door, grabbed a 44 and Said "I can't take life no more", and just like that life can be lost, But this ain't even about that, All of us just sat back and watched it happened, Think it's not our responsibility to solve a problem that isn't about me, This is our problem this is just one of the daily scenarios which we choose to cause a rise, Instead of doing the right thing, If we make a choice, To be the voice, for those who won't speak up for themselves, How many life's would we save, ? rearranged now it's our turn to pick a side, So don't keep walking by not wanting to interfere, cause you just wanna exist but never be seen So lets wake up , Change the world, Our time is now.

Heroes are made when you make a choice
You could be a hero
Heroes do whats right
You could be a hero, You might save a life
You could be a hero, You could join a fight
For whats right for whats right for whats right
