A hero lies in you

There's a hero and that is you,
A hero lies in you.
It's a fact and you know it's true,
A hero lies in you.
Heroes and heroines fought, and won the race,
A hero lies in you
Deep down in your heart a hero takes its place,
A hero lies in you. 

You can survive, be strong, be determine,
A hero lies in you
The road is long, and you will win,
A hero lies in you.
Hope subside, no hands outstretched,
A hero lies in you.
It won't be long now a bright light shines ahead
A hero lies in you. 

Hold on dreams are hard to follow
A hero lies in you.
Don't let anyone detour, or take them away,
A hero lies in you. 
Hold on joy will come in the morning
Because that hero lies in you.
