Hero Lyrics

Let me be your hero

Would you dance,
If I asked you to dance?
Would you run,
And never look back?
Would you cry,
If you saw me crying?
And would you save my soul, tonight?

Would you tremble,
If I touched your lips?
Would you...

    This is about Enrique who met a girl online and fell so in love with her. Still is. They are soulmates. Meant to be together. He sings many songs for/to her. They got separated, out of her control. She tries to get to him, and did once.... but he didn’t recognize her. In real life that is, not the video. It’s been like 20ish years since they met and got separated. They both believe that God will reunite them again soon. Hopefully. Such a tragic situation but hopefully with a happy ending.

    I believe the song "hero" is a love story. But it's more then just any love story between a man and a woman. Some people are born to be together and it's brought by God I believe. It's predestined since birth that two people meet. Some things you have no control over. Love is stronger then evil. Two souls fell in love because there bond and connection is industructable. Nothing will get in the way if two souls are born to be together. The love that they were born to find.

    This interpretation has been marked as poor. view anyway

    What if this song is about a girl he saw in a crowd and felt a deep connection to? One that is almost unexplainable. In this song, he seems to have a need to find out who she is because the reality is he has no idea who she is. But he knows, she's meant to be a part of him, a part of his life. Even though he doesn't know who she is, he knows they have a connection that is deeper than he could ever imagine. Therefore, he wants to save her, and at the same time he knows she will save him.

    Have you watched the music video? Haven't you noticed the hitmen? He is taking her away from that life. It's what I call the "superhero theory." Peter Parker tells Mary Jane that he can't be with her because the villains would use her and his love for her against him. Enrique is a hero, but he runs away from the villains to be alone with her, but they still find and kill him. But for love, he was willing to leave his life and everyone else behind.

    My boyfriend sings this song to me every night while I fall asleep. The first time I heard this song was when he sang it to me on our 6 month anv. This song is all about how much a guy loves this girl. And he would do anything and everything for her. Just to see her smiling face. I know it works for me.

    This song was playing when me and my first love met and so it became our song. I think this song is about how much the guy loves his girlfriend. He would do anything for her, he is so in love with her he dont care about anything else. He would go so far as to die for her, and he does in the end, all for love, all for her.
    I can speak from my own experience on that. even though me and her are broken up, it still hits me when i hear that song. oh the memories

    This song is about a guy wanting to be his girlfriend's "hero" and save her from all the pain she is going through in her life at the moment. He sees her sad and depressed and finds out that he only wants her to be happy and that he would do anything for her. He feels quite vulnerable in singing this song, but he feels like he must express how he feels so he sings it anyway.
