Paramore My Hero Lyrics

Last updated: 10/28/2012 11:36:03 AM

[Originally by Foo Fighters]

Too alarming now to talk about
Take your pictures down and shake it out
Truth or consequence, say it aloud
Use that evidence, racing around

There goes my hero
Watch him as he goes
There goes my hero
He's ordinary

Don't the best of them bleed it out
While the rest of them peter out
Truth or consequence, say it aloud
Use that evidence, race it around

There goes my hero
Watch him as he goes
There goes my hero
He's ordinary

Kudos my hero leaving all the best
You know my hero, the one that's on

There goes my hero
Watch him as he goes
There goes my hero
He's ordinary

There goes my hero
Watch him as he goes
There goes my hero
He's ordinary

Thanks to for submitting My Hero Lyrics.

Lill, you're an idiot | Reviewer: Till | 10/28/12

This is song is whatever you want it to be and Dave Grohl wrote it for the everyday ordinary hero. No one in particular. Lill, please don't make judgement statements. From the looks at your grammar, you're from an English-speaking country and therefore your country has needed the U.S.'s help at one time or is a definite ally. For what it is, keep your mouth shut.

A very inspiring song :) | Reviewer: Lill | 9/21/12

I love this song but I don't associate the hero in it with people. Some mentioned soldiers who fight for the United States and no I'm not american but please don't confuse doing your job and getting paid for it with heroic acts. The truth is they make a living of it and not a bad one.
Also I agree on some of the things Ian said. I mean come on the terrorist attack shouldn't have done that much damage on the building alone it's logic really but I'll let you figure that out and no I don't know for certain but oh well. Oh and @Erin please don't be dramatic fact is that America was never a battlefield during either of the world wars the closest it got was Hawaii I believe. America has the tendency to poke it's nose into other peoples business and proclaim it a heroic act. I am not a big fan of America don't get me wrong love some places there nor do I hate it after all it's the country of chances. Anyway it was said that every country has there own faults.
Back to the song it's an inspirational song I interpret it as a wish to better myself.

love this song so much!! | Reviewer: check yes wtk | 5/23/11

Ok I just heard this song yesterday..I'm aware I'm very late on hearing this song, But when I heard it I related quickly! This song reminds me of my 3 heros God, Jesus Christ And Travis clark of yes we the kings. first off God's my hero because..well without him none of us would be here he created Jesus who died for our sins and forgives the stupid things we do! Jesus cause like I said he died for our sins and we should appreciate him more. and Travis because he's so positive and so full of love hope & life

Eugh. | Reviewer: Anonymous | 5/15/11

Okay; for starters, North & South America are separate continents. & 'Ian' obviously isn't from America. He used 'j' instead of 'h', suggesting he is either Mexican, German or something similar.
The reason the twin towers were targeted was because of George W. invading middle eastern countries for oil, under the false pretence of "WMD's". After 9/11, that just gave them a better excuse. Now I'm not saying that what the terrorists did was right, not at all, but you people don't seem to think about WHY people do things, just what you can do to get back at them.
I'm also not saying that service men & women aren't heroes, they're certainly braver than me, but just think about what they're REALLY fighting for. If you honestly think that invading 3rd world, middle eastern countries is going to give you the freedom & justice you already have, well then there's something rotten in the state of USA.
& before you give me some bullshit patriotic rant about how grateful I should be, I'm not from America. I'm from Australia, & I think it's ridiculous that we get roped in to fight wars your government starts so that we can keep our allegiance & not have the potential to be invaded in the future. Because honestly, if say, the Turks invaded Australia, do you REALLY think USA troops would come running to the rescue? I doubt it.
/end rant

To the real topic, I love this song. :D

i <3 paramore | Reviewer: Ronnie | 8/23/10

i <3 paramore!!hayley is my idol!i love this song so kinda relates to me even though i don't even know who my hero is or who i am anymore.i feel like a joke.but most of her songs really do relate to emergency,decode,let this go.there's a lot more but i hav to clean my room or else my dad will flush my phone down the toilet.

keep on rockin paramore.(:(:(:

Wow.... | Reviewer: Erin | 7/31/10

so first off anyone that will go across the seas to possibly get themselves killed to defend the UNITED STATES OF AMERICA is a hero to me.
We call ourselves the United States of America because we are 50 states united in America. South America is full of seperate countries that are not united under one form of government, and thats why they aren't united and we are. get your facts first.
i don't know where you are from Ian but I do know if you are from america you have no idea how greatful you should be to the men and women that went to defend your country after the Twin Towers were destroyed by two hijacked airplanes, and the pentagon was targetted. thousands upon thousands of people died that day. people with families and friends. people with their whole lives ahead of them. people that didnt know they were going to die. they left behind families to deal with the loss, and are a reason a country is devastaed. imagine if you were a member of one of those families or a friend of one of those people that were lost. how would you feel, you would eat your words.
In the United States of America, when a person goes to fight for anothers freedom we consider that a hero, an angel on earth, a savior to our country.
Ian, you need to seriously think of what it would be like if someone led an attack like that on your lands, in the country you know and love.

and to the troops, THANKYOU AND GOD BLESS

hey | Reviewer: Mel | 3/16/10

First off, love Paramore! Hayley has the most amazing voice! I love this cover so much!!

Now @Ian pirulo
Every country is not perfect and the U.S. is no exception. However, any person that puts themselves in the military to be sent out and risking their lives is brave. To some those men and women out there are their hero. That is what this song is about a person's hero. This song is saying that any person can be a hero to anyone. "There goes my hero he's ordinary." Don't yell at others for who they think is a hero please. -_-

Oh, c'mon | Reviewer: Ian_pirulo | 3/2/10

jajaja, i can't stop laughingh every time i see some american ass thinking "oh, our troops are heros, they fight for freedom and justice" c'mon, wake up, you live in a capitalist country that needs to destroy cultures to feed its market, your stupid country need to control the oil and so you go and kill what you call terrorists, wich have nothing to do but your government says that they are bad people and you say "yes, they are bad people if you say"... god you are fucked up, the next war will be when you jerks need water and have to invade the south american countries to steal their water because yours is too contaminated... And you are not America, you are the United States of North America, America is a CONTINENT suckers, where a lot of people live...
Cheers... Hope some "yankee" citizen wake up and stop traiding their young people for the oil of the market...

I love my hero | Reviewer: Ashley | 10/11/09

I love paramore. Just about all their songs relate to me somehow. This song reminds me of my hero, my boyfrined who is in the army training to save the lives of his fellow american citizens, his family, and me. I love this song, and i'm singing it in my school's talent show, wish me luck.

My Hero | Reviewer: kori | 9/25/09

I don't know why but every time I hear this song it makes me think of "The Passion of the Christ". I mean Jesus isn't ordinary but it makes me think of Jesus as he's walking up to the cross. Don't ask why but it does.

This is great. | Reviewer: Anonymous | 7/28/09

I am a Paramore fan, but that aside, this is an amazing song. Sound of Superman is a wonderful compilation. The refrain makes me think of a special somebody (insert girlie smile here). The vocalization is beautiful, and the chords are so soothing. I'd recommend listening.

I was thinking | Reviewer: Vanessa | 11/1/08

A friend and I are triying to do a cover of this song... for a friend's birthday. She does really feel the lyrics, and we try to do it too, for she. The song is awesome, the guitar is great, and we wish to do a great cover.

oh wow, amazinngg :) | Reviewer: Mercedes Smelser (= | 7/4/08

Paramore is one of thee favorites! I am in LOVE with Hayleys voice. & their beats are sickk. I'm actually not writing to talk about "My Hero." Because my favorite songs are That's what you get, Pressure. Emergency, Misery Business, and crushcrushcrush! Haha. I love listening to their music when I'm crying. Idk why. It just makes all my tears poor out until I don't have anymore and then I feel better (= my uncle calls me crazy for thinking a bunch of screaming makes me feel better but their words are just soothing! Her songs relate to me!

I love you guys.
& lookn forward to meeting you someday.
Keep doing what your doing, your amazzinng! :)

My Hero | Reviewer: Nic | 2/23/08

My Hero!!!! | Reviewer: cecille | 1/24/08

I really like the song because the song gives salute to all ordinary people that became a hero for some.... All of us can be a hero...Anyone can be a hero if you want to help others...For me I really admire those people....
