The Revival of a Hero

“Of course he cannot do this alone
So he asks for help he asks for a loan
Wanting his answers to be shone
The hero is saved and back on his throne”

Poem
The Revival of a Hero

A child of prophecy born within the light
Growing up, giving all a delight
Growing up and stuck in a fight
Trying to win with all my might

The battle we lost but still in war
Fighting for our lives that we endure
The battles may make our hearts sore
By not giving up, we open a door

From the ground and up, he stands
Always looking forward and please understand
The hero we all know is only a man
Wanting to save everyone and fulfill his plan

Of course he cannot do this alone
So he asks for help he asks for a loan
Wanting his answers to be shone
The hero is saved and back on his throne

Song Lyrics
The Revival of a Hero

Hey I know a boy with the sun in his eyes
The wind at his back
The world on his side

Hey I know a boy
Every moment
He spreads joy and delight

[Chorus]
The revival of a hero
The revival of a hero
Hey I know a boy with the moon in his hair
The earth at his feet
With him no despair

Hey I know a boy
He’s a hero
In everyone’s eyes

[Chorus]

Hey I know a boy with stars in his heart
The sky is his stage
With hope he imparts

Hey I know a boy
Saving everyone
He keeps us alive

[Chorus]
