Do you still remember the dreams that you had as a child that got shattered in front of your eyes
When you were just about to believe they would come true?
But these words by your hero helping making amends for every mistake you ́ve made
And oh damn I ́ve made so many!

Now we sing for our heroes till four in the morning
with a whisky glass and guitar sound,
we drink till we ́re drunk and we sing till we ́re done
and we lift them up high, we still sing their songs!

She is a broken-hearted but she keeps on walking step by step by step, 
Cause she ́s got a song on her mind, sung by a man who knows how life is played.
It ́s her hero, a singing sailor man that goes fishing for fucked up dreams
Just with a hoarse voice.

And I ́m dragging myself across the floor ́cause I still don ́t know what I ́m looking for!

Now we sing for our heroes till four in the morning
with a whisky glass and guitar sound,
we drink till we ́re drunk and we sing till we ́re done
and we lift them up high, we still sing their songs!

Oh god, don ́t you think that way of living is killing us inside?
Don ́t you think that way of loving is breaking our hearts?
Don ́t you think that is the right way to spend our time?

And we sing for our heroes till four in the morning
with a whisky glass and guitar sound,
we drink till we ́re drunk and we sing till we ́re done
and we lift them up high, we still sing their songs!
