Hero of the Day Lyrics - Metallica



Review The Song (8)


Mama they try and break me

The window burns to light the way back home
A light that warms no matter where they've gone

They're off to find the hero of the day
But what if they should fall by someone's wicked way

Still the window burns
Time so slowly turns
And someone there is sighing
Keepers of the flames
Can you feel your names?
Can't you hear your baby's crying?
Mama they try and break me
Still they try and break me

S'cuse me while I tend to how I feel
These things return to me that still seem real

Now deservingly this easy chair
But the rocking stopped by wheels of despair

Don't want your aid
But the fist I've made
For years, can't hold or feel
No I'm not all me
So please excuse me
While I tend to how I feel

But now the dreams and waking screams
That everlast the night
So build a wall
Behind it crawl
And hide until it's light
Can't you hear your baby's crying now?

Still the window burns
Time so slowly turns
And someone there is sighing
Keepers of the flames
Can't you feel your names?
Can't you hear your baby's crying?

But now the dreams and waking screams
That everlast the night
So build a wall
Behind it crawl
And hide until it's light
Can't you hear your baby's crying now?

Mama they try and break me
Mama they try and break me
Mama they try and break me
Mama they try
Mama they try hey!
Mama they try and break me
Mama they try and break me
Mama they try and break me
Mama they try
Mama they try

Love this song | Reviewer: Andres | 7/27/13

Beautiful song. The song reminds me of how as a young boy i would hope to go outside to find the hero of the day. So enthusiastic and pure hearted.. yet as i grew i would feel confused and angry that society was so controversial. I would hope to look for the hero of the day only to be hurt more and more each time. So who is the hero of the day? we hope it is us sometimes, a hope that sometimes seems not worth the pain..yet i always cheer for those still fighting.

back to this chef d'oeuvre | Reviewer: Popobawa | 11/18/11

Haven't heard this song for 8 years, came back to it now by coincidence, feeling tears in my eyes already... it is a part of my past, a perfect song, I used to listen to it when I really had a PRIMITIVE understanding of English, NOW IT MAKE A LOT OF SENSE to me... Metallica you really rock hard

Hero of the day | Reviewer: Keiran | 12/29/10

"There of to find the hero of the day" This song for me pure emotion. Its a pwerful song. Its not all anger i think its about personal quest its about good vs evil and good trying to defy evil and overcome it. This hs song inspired me to re-kindle a relationship with a girl that I was with 10 years ago and have never stopped loving despite lifes many challenges and at 30 we both found ourselves single again and remarkably still into each other. Hopefully its meant to be. Metallica you rock hard.

Song for modern day warriors! | Reviewer: Sgt. Lagumbay | 12/21/10

I'm a soldier from the Republic of the Philippines. We listen to this song everytime we go to battle inside our APC's.I love the line that says: They're off to find the hero of the day
But what if they should fall by someone's wicked way
I look at my men and tell them how their country is proud of them.Great inspirational song! Thanks Metallica!

to bill selmi | Reviewer: will | 7/29/10

st. ang is a great album and unless you've seen the documentary "Some Kind Of Monster" then don't say anything about it..... they made like 30 songs for that album and yes they don't have solos in and they sound different, but they were expressing their feelings at how they felt at that time. which of course was anger......

okay. | Reviewer: bill selmi | 4/16/09

this album is good, and this is one of my favorite songs from metallica. but they were never the same when cliff burton died. but that didn't stop them from making awsome songs. i think that metallica didn't even try on st. anger. i think that's when metallica's popularity fell. but they made a good come back with death magnetic.

but still this song is good!!!!1
