I'll be my own hero

There is no demo for this song.

Liner Notes

we have loadshedding... so not much happening music wise so I recon I would do a lyric. There is a need for female empowerment songs- I guess this is one of those songs. I personally feel everybody has a place in the sun and a role to play but sometimes that means you have to do it from a distance.

Lyrics

I'll be my own hero

V1: I dreamed you left me
But I was wrong: you stayed.
I dreamed you believed in me
But you crucified me, watch me bleed
when all I wanted was for my life to be a song.

PC: I want the World to hear it
I want the World to feel it
When I raise my voice
and align myself
with this whisper deep inside.

Ch: I'll be my own hero
I'm tired of waiting for someone else
to come and save me
I am the only one
The time has come
to stay true to who I am
and for once walk away
and not be so damn alone.

V2. I don’t feel empty
I feel filled and lifted up
It is difficult to love enough
and leave your past behind, everything
the time has come to take care of yourself

PC: I want the World to hear it
I want the World to feel it
When I raise my voice
and align myself
with this whisper deep inside.

Ch: I'll be my own hero
I'm tired of waiting for someone else
to come and save me
I am the only one
The time has come
to stay true to who I am
and for once walk away
and not be so damn alone.

B: When I'm gone you won't even notice
Without hesitation, you'll ignore this
This dream, this woman, this child
begging for a moment of your time.

Talk about an anthemic and empowering lyric. the whole concept of being your own hero really sets this lyric apart. Thank you for putting me onto this, I would love the opportunity to put some music to this. I hope I can do this lyric justice :)
