Heroes don't cry


They say heroes don’t cry
But who knows
Maybe that’s why I’ve never seen you cry

They say you’re greater than life
Who knows,
But I have seen life
Crush you down and make you try

You’re my hero
You still are
You’re the only one
I’ve ever trusted in

Though you are fragile
You’re still my backbone
You are the one I look up to
You must know I will always love you

First loves are never forgotten
And dad, you were my first one
You are my hero, you’ll always be
You are the only one I will ever trust in

They say heroes don’t cry
Maybe that’s why I’ve never seen you cry
Except for that time when you shed a tear
While I cried at your knees

That’s when I realized
My hero does cry
And I don’t really mind
I really don’t mind
