  • I'm just a step away
    I'm just a breath away
    Losin' my faith today
    (Fallin' off the edge today)

    I am just a man
    Not superhuman
    (I'm not superhuman)
    Someone save me from the hate

    It's just another war
    Just another family torn
    (Falling from my faith today)
    Just a step from the edge
    Just another day in the world we live

    I need a hero to save me now
    I need a hero (save me now)
    I need a hero to save my life
    A hero'll save me (just in time)

    I've gotta fight today
    To live another day
    Speakin' my mind today
    (My voice will be heard today)

    I've gotta make a stand
    But I am just a man
    (I'm not superhuman)
    My voice will be heard today

    It's just another war
    Just another family torn
    (My voice will be heard today)
    It's just another kill
    The countdown begins to destroy ourselves

    I need a hero to save me now
    I need a hero (save me now)
    I need a hero to save my life
    A hero'll save me (just in time)

    I need a hero to save my life
    I need a hero just in time
    Save me just in time
    Save me just in time

    Who's gonna fight for what's right
    Who's gonna help us survive
    We're in the fight of our lives
    (And we're not ready to die)

    Who's gonna fight for the weak
    Who's gonna make 'em believe
    I've got a hero (I've got a hero)
    Livin' in me

    I'm gonna fight for what's right
    Today I'm speaking my mind
    And if it kills me tonight
    (I will be ready to die)

    A hero's not afraid to give his life
    A hero's gonna save me just in time

    I need a hero to save me now
    I need a hero (save me now)
    I need a hero to save my life
    A hero'll save me (just in time)

    I need a hero
    Who's gonna fight for what's right
    Who's gonna help us survive

    I need a hero
    Who's gonna fight for the weak
    Who's gonna make 'em believe
    I need a hero
    I need a hero

    A hero's gonna save me just in time Writer/s: JOHN COOPER, KOREY COOPER

  • Daniel from Winchester, Ohiogeez, my comment from way back then seems so cringey now.. still this is a pretty good song with one decently good memory behind it, my friend Jeremy, who just so happens to be christian used to overplay the crap out of this song at my former best friend's house, dude we got so absolutely tired of the song for awhile that even now I still get flashbacks every time I hear it.
  • Megan from Stevenson, AlOH, WOW! This song is truely amazing! I ABSOLUTELY LOVE the bass in this song!!!
  • Jack from Nashville, TnThis song sucks so much balls, but I wouldn't really expect anything different from this band.
  • Nathan Ritz from Paoli, InHero and monster are my favorite songs.
  • [p3yt0n} from Somewhere, In"A hero's not afraid to give his life. A hero's gonna save me just in time." Very true.
  • Daniel from Winchester, OhThis and "Monster" has become one of favorite Skillet songs!!!
