Local Heroes Lyrics

2. Local Heroes (4:49)
[Jerry Harrison, Dan Wexler]

Thinking about our younger days, when we would say
No one would ever get us down
We'd never touch the ground
Proving wrong the dis-believing people
We'd take it day by day
Making it play by play

Living off ambition, never was an imposition
We wouldn't compromise
You gotta realize
People gathered around and gave us reasons
They kept us holding on
We couldn't do any wrong

Every night I'd get that same old feeling
Knowing that I wouldn't feel this way again

LOCAL HEROES
Just LOCAL HEROES
People would stand in line
They didn't seem to mind

LOCAL HEROES
Just LOCAL HEROES
Only for just one day
We're gonna have our way

Playing in the different towns
Yeah, I'd steal the bed or you took the ground
We didn't really care
We got an even share
Friday night at closing time we'd be there
We'd share a drink or two
And then we'd play right through

Every night we'd get that same old feeling
Knowing that we wouldn't feel this way again

LOCAL HEROES
Just LOCAL HEROES
People would stand in line
They didn't seem to mind

LOCAL HEROES
Just LOCAL HEROES
Only for just one day
We're gonna have our way

Just Local Heroes, Thinking that you've got it made
Just Local Heroes

(Guitar Solo)

Thinking about our younger days, now some would say
That I just can't keep holding on
To a dream thats gone
No one can change the way I feel though
Many years long ago
Thats tomorrow

HEROES
Just LOCAL HEROES
People would stand in line
They didn't seem to mind

LOCAL HEROES
Just LOCAL HEROES
Only for just one day
We're gonna have our way

Just LOCAL HEROES
Just LOCAL HEROES
Just LOCAL HEROES
