Heaven was Needing a Hero

By: Jo Dee Messina

I came by today to see you
Though I had to let you know
If I knew the last time that I held you was the last time,
I’d have held you and never let go
Oh it’s kept me awake night wonderin’
Lie in the dark, just asking “why?”
I’ve always been told you won’t be called home until it’s your time

 

I guess Heaven was needing a hero
Somebody just like you
Brave enough to stand up for what you believe and follow it though
When I try to make it make sense in my mind
The only conclusion I come to
Is that Heaven was needing a hero like you

 

I remember the last time I saw you
Oh you held your head up proud
I laughed inside when I saw how you were, standing out in the crowd
You’re such a part of who I am
Now that part will just be void
No matter how much I need you now
Heaven needed you more

 

‘Cause Heaven was needing a hero
Somebody just like you
Brave enough to stand up for what you believe and follow it though
When I try to make it make sense in my mind
The only conclusion I come to
Is that Heaven was needing a hero like you

 

Yes, Heaven was needing a hero…that’s you.
