  • Gray from Aurora , CoThis is a really good song. I really like the beginning where he says "Forget perfect, im just trying not to be worthless." It means to me how so many teenagers dont know what they want to do but just trying to do there best even though they feel its worthless.
  • Ashlee from HobartI think this song is awesome. i like the line "I'm not a hero but don't think i didn't care" or however it goes. lol
  • Danielle from Killeen, TxI love this song. The line 'even heroes know when to be scared' is my fave line in the whole song.
