Running Out of Heroes
Words and Music By Adam Watts

Born under bright lights
Hearts beat, we're alive
Trying to be kings and queens

If we're lucky we're raised under love
But some of us starve, never get enough
Then we carry that weight up, up

They say we're running out of heroes
I say they're looking in the wrong place
'Cause if they really want a hero
It's in the way, in the way, you take away the pain

All night I sleep on a time bomb
With you by side it never goes off
They say we're running out of heroes
They don't see, you and me
And the secret that we both know

Hard falls, long nights
So few sympathize
We stand up, carry on breathing

We can choose to brave it alone
Gain the world while we lose our souls
But to save is beautiful
