Heroes (We Could Be) Lyrics
(feat. Tove Lo)

We go hideaway in daylight
We go undercover when under sun
Got a secret side in plain sight
Where the streets are empty
That's where we run

Everyday people do
Everyday things but I
Can't be one of them
I know you hear me now
We are a different kind
We can do anything

We could be heroes
We could be heroes
Me and you
We could be heroes
We could be heroes
Me and you
We could be

Anybody's got the power
They don't see it
'Cos they don't understand
Spin around and run for hours
You and me we got the world in our hands

Everyday people do
Everyday things but I
Can't be one of them
I know you hear me now
We are a different kind
We can do anything

We could be heroes
We could be heroes
Me and you
We could be heroes
We could be heroes
Me and you
We could be

We could be heroes
We could be heroes
Me and you
We could be

All we're looking for is love and a little light
Love and a little light
(We could be)
All we're looking for is love and a little light
Love and a little light

We could be heroes
We could be heroes
Me and you
We could be

Heroes (We Could Be) Info:

• Alesso explained: "The song gives me the feeling that something might be over, but it's okay, we're still here together after it. This might be the last time we'll be in that moment, but we can create new ones afterwards."

• Tove Lo's lyrics were inspired by an episode of the TV series "Heroes" that she happen to watch. She explained: "I was thinking of being a kid and wishing I had these powers when I would pretend. There's nothing extraordinary about me in that way, but you always wish you could have that. Something will set me off, and I'll start writing. Then, I'll circle back to my own experience."

• Alesso explained how he originally connected with Tove Lo: "My team and I reached out to her to see if she'd be interested in a collaboration, and a couple months later, we began writing the lyrics that would go over these instrumentals. We discussed what it should be about - we knew it should be an emotional record -- and she came back with this gorgeous topline."

• The song's lyrics are partially taken from Heroes by David Bowie. The subject of the song has been updated from that of irony-touched love in the shadow of the Berlin Wall in Bowie's version to the present-day street-life interactions of a couple.
