Hero (Earl Kate)

Alicia stands behind me Ties black ribbon in my hair The sound of heavy boots Slowly pounding up the stairs The organ pours out slow and soothing Old and rugged hymns I long to find some comfort But my sorrow won't give in This is the coldest winter In a thousand freezing years And if I started crying I could never stop the tears You don't know what you've done Not here to see the repercussions of your love You don't know what you've done You're not my hero anymore Time is slowing down Like a river clogged with mud People gather round me Some friends and others blood The trumpeter starts playing taps The soldiers fire their guns The folding of the flag Makes the tears come in a flood You don't know what you've done Not here to see the repercussions of your love You don't know what you've done You're not my hero anymore No one would say you were an easy man No, you are hard and stubborn and vain And I'm tired of being held back at arms length Tired, tired And something's gotta change You don't know what you've done I didn't break, no, I've grown strong You don't know what you've done You're not my hero You're not my hero anymore Anymore Anymore You're not my hero anymore Not here to face the consequences of your love You're not my hero anymore Anymore Anymore
