Mariah Carey: Hero Meaning
No tags, suggest one.
Song Released: 1993
If you look inside your heart
You don't have to be afraid
Of what you are
There's an answer
If you reach into your soul
And the sorrow that you know
Will melt away
And then a hero comes along
With the strength...

I think deep down it means that when a hero is in your life, you just let go of everything and forget all about your fears because you feel safe. Its saying that you don't have to depend on a hero to keep you safe and that you can protect yourself. Then when you finally realize that you can't depend on heroes anymore or that your tired of having to depend on a hero, you just have to be strong or be prepared for whatever comes and to keep you and your family safe. I believe that she is saying that while you were depending on someone else to be your hero and watch over you, you could have done that yourself because deep down in you, there's a hero.

the line "you can find love if you search within yourself" means love starts to yourself. in other words you cant love anyone else if you dont know how to love yourself.

Dreams are hard to follow
But don't let anyone
Tear them away
There will be tomorrow
You'll find the way

I think what Carey is trying to say is that you can push through whatever hardships you’re going through and that you don’t need someone else to be brave for you because you can be your own hero. The message of the song is to stay strong even if life gets hard, and that you can’t be afraid.
