"Heroes" as written by Laurie Jones and Lothar Krell....
I, I will be king
And you, you will be king
And 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 me
And I, I do all the time
'Cause we're lovers and that is a fact

Yes, we are and that is that
Well nothing can keep us together
We can steal time

Just for one day, we could be heroes
Forever and ever, what do you say?

I, I wish you could swim
Like the dolphins, like dolphins swim
And nothing, nothing can keep us together
We can beat them

Forever and ever oh, we can be heroes
Just for one day

I, I will be queen
And you, you will be king
Though nothing will drive 'em away

We can be heroes just for one day
We can be us, just for one day

I, I remember, standing, by the wall
The guns, shone above our heads
And we kissed I saw nothing to fault

And the shade was on the other side
Oh, we can beat them

Forever and ever, we can be heroes
Just for one day, we can be heroes
Just for one day, we can be heroes

    General CommentA good effort, and respectfully done, but I still prefer the David Bowie original to any cover-version ever done.
