I'm Not Your Hero
Tegan and Sara Lyrics


Standing where I am now, standing up at all
I was used to feeling like I was never gonna see myself at the finish line
Hanging on to parts of me, hanging on at all
I was used to seeing no future in my sight line

Sometimes it feels like they wanna remind me
Send all those villains after me

I'm not their hero
But that doesn't mean that I wasn't brave
I never walked the party line
Doesn't mean that I was never afraid
I'm not your hero
But that doesn't mean we're not one and the same

Feeling like I am now lighting up the hall
I was used to standing in the shadow of a damaged heart
Learning all I know now, losing all I did
I never used to feel like I'd be standing so far ahead

Sometimes it feels what I recovered you lost
Sending your peaceful loss to me

I'm not their hero
But that doesn't mean that I wasn't brave
I never walked the party line
Doesn't mean that I was never afraid
I'm not your hero
But that doesn't mean we're not one and the same

Sometimes it feels like the side that I'm on
Plays the toughest hand, holds the longest stand
Sometimes it feels like I'm all that they've got
It's so hard to know I'm not what they want

Sometimes it feels like the side that I'm on
Plays the toughest hand, holds the longest stand
Sometimes it feels like I'm all that they've got
It's so hard to know I'm not what they want

I'm not their hero
But that doesn't mean that I wasn't brave
I never walked the party line
Doesn't mean that I was never afraid
I'm not your hero
But that doesn't mean we're not one and the same
I do my best to walk the finest line
Till I've had all that I can take

This is definitely one of the best songs they've ever made. 3 mins 55 secs of perfection.

Marcus Aurealius

A lot of your songs, like this one, reminds me of my mother. She has a heart of gold, and is always able to bring out the best in people, even those who criticize her. She is one of those people who is always emotionally available...for everyone. A role model for all of us.

I am ok with that, if you go mainstream you lose what is you.

Oisin Kennedy

Saltine Cracker

jjm2412 Not mainstream? Haven’t they had AT LEAST 3 songs on the radio?

John Newall

​@ThePeachJames He didn't say it was. He clearly said it was the first of their CDs he bought...

I love this song. It's a must listen before I go to work. I have a lot of responsibility that rests on my shoulders and this song helps me to power thru those tough days. And after a hard day. It's played a lot!!!
