"Hero In Me" as written by and Jeffrey Gaines....
He's lived as long as he possibly can
Given the circumstance
Cause he's protected himself from the world
He never gave it a chance
And he says: Here in my security
I've put a limit on my self-potential
And my possibility
She's seen these walls and they never change
Everything's in its place
Her relationships so neatly arranged
Down to religion and race
And she says: Here in my security
I don't make a move unless my friends approve
I do what's expected of me
And as I grow older
And there's so much that I do not know
I'm drawn to those who are bolder
And go where no one dare to go
And I sleep
And I dream of the person I might have been
Then I'll be free again
And I speak
Like someone who's been to the highest peaks
And back again
And I swear
That my grass is greener than anyone's
'Til I believe again
Then I wake
And the dream fades away and I face the day
And I realize
That there's got to be some hero in me
There's got to be some hero in me
They've been suppressing their every desire
They do nothing on a whim
She's lost her sparkle and he's lost the fire
Their future looks very dim
And I say: Here in my security
I've simply let myself go
I've developed a co-dependency
And as I grow older
So many places that I've never been
Time's tapping my shoulder
I hope it's never too late to begin
And I sleep
And I dream of the person I might have been
And I'll be free again
And I speak
Like someone who's been to the highest peak
And back again
And I swear
That my grass is greener than anyone's
'Til I believe again
Then I wake
And the dream fades away yet I face the day
And I realize
That there's got to be some hero in me
There's got to be some hero in me

    General CommentAwesome Song. The Chorus is so powerful. Jeffrey is a great singer songwriter.

    I met him after a concert I went to. I was almost depressed after the show just thinking of the lyrics and what he had to say about the songs. I expected him to be the typical depressed somewhat troubled dark poet, then I met him and he was like so wheres the party, very happy and sociable.
