Lyrics

All The Heroes
© May, 2014 by David Nyro

Turn around and kiss me, even tho’ you’ve gone away
All the words I said come back to haunt me
But the worst are the words, the words, the words I didn’t say,
They echo in my empty dreams unspoken, they still taunt me . . .

Burn it down, burn it down, burn it down, the bridges and the garden Ring around the roses, that’s how our hearts all harden . . .
Scattered ashes and we all fall down; all we know is round and round; won’t someone lead me to the promised land
I believe, I believe, I believe, I believe a day will come, when a light will pierce your heart and you will understand

All the heroes and all the healers
All the writers and all the readers
All the politicians and all the leaders
All the doctors and all the bleeders
All the sisters and all the children Couldn’t put me back
together again, together again Ooooooh Ooooooh.

I cried, I cried, I cried, I cried so very hard,
it broke something deep inside.
I don’t know how I could love you so, when you were so unmoved
It goes to show it’s not the choice that we decide

Oh heartless heart, you are my greatest nemesis –
How could you leave me in this endless emptiness?
I see no peace in sight, as far as I can see, there’s no one, more wretched than me.

All the heroes and all the healers
All the writers and all the readers
All the politicians and all the leaders
All the doctors and all the bleeders
All the sisters and all the children Couldn’t put me back
together again, together again Ooooooh Ooooooh.

Verse instrumental (piano and snare drum)

All the heroes and all the healers
All the writers and all the readers
All the politicians and all the leaders
All the doctors and all the bleeders
All the sisters and all the children
All the factories and all the builders
All the angel and all the demons, couldn’t put me back together again, together again
Ooooooooh Ooooooooh Ooooooooh
