"Hero Of Love" as written by Edward Joel Kowalczyk, Chad David Taylor, Patrick Dahlheimer and Chad Alan Gracey....
I caught a glimpse of heaven last night
To the left of your body
To the right of your mind
Lost in a riddle I was helpless to understand
I went to a healer
The healer held my hand
She said: "All of these things
Are written the sand behind me"

Oh, I dream about you every night
I call your name
The whole world thinks that I am insane
Here I come again

I caught a glimpse of Heaven last night
Through a crack in the mirror
That fractalized the light
A saint is a sinner
A sinner is a saint
It's all just the cloaks we hide behind
A cartoon in the brain
And I say: "All of these things
Are written in the sand behind me"

Oh, I dream about you every night
I call your name
The whole world thinks that I am insane
Here I come again

Oh, well I am the hero of love
Taking you higher
I want to be your hero of love
Is it getting better, is it getting brighter
I want to be your hero
Your hero of love

I caught a glimpse of Heaven last night
Was that a number ninety-six
Or was it a sixty-nine
Oh, I was lost in a riddle I was helpless to understand
I went to a lover
This lover held my hand
She said: "All of these things
Are just written in the sand behind me"

Oh, I dream about you every night, baby
I call your name
The whole world thinks that I am insane
Here I come again

Oh, well I am the hero of love
Taking you higher
I want to be your hero of love
Is it getting better, is it getting brighter
I want to be your hero
Your hero of love
Of love, of love, of love

I want to be your hero of love
I want to be your hero of love
I've got to be your hero of love
I want to be your hero of love

I want to move mountains
I want to move the devil
Presidents, armies, everybody, everybody
I want to be your hero of love

    General CommentOne of live's most personal songs. Unlike most of their music, the "love" referred to in this song is not about god, but a girl. He loves her for everything she is, he loves her not because he can live with her, but rather he loves her because he cant live without her. He wants to be there for her, Both physically and emotionally all that he knew before hand has become meaningless and mundane.
    "oh, I dream about you every night
    I call your name
    the whole world thinks that I am insane"

    A brilliant love song, a rarity from live... since most of the songs they write about love seem to have highly religious references.
