The Most Important Songs of the Rock Era: Songs That Changed the World--"Hero" by Mariah Carey

This woman used to write great, meaningful songs like "Make It Happen" and "Hero".  She hasn't done anything in the last 20 years that's important, but this is a great song about the importance of the individual and what we all can achieve.  Extremely powerful song.
by Mariah Carey

Written by Mariah Carey and Walter Afanasieff

There's a hero
If you look inside your heart
You don't have to be afraid
Of what you are
There's an answer
If you reach into your soul
And the sorrow that you know
Will melt away


And then a hero comes along
With the strength to carry on
And you cast your fears aside
And you know you can survive
So when you feel like hope is gone
Look inside you and be strong
And you'll finally see the truth
That a hero lies in you

It's a long road
When you face your world alone
No one reaches out a hand
For you to hold
You can find love
If you search within yourself
And the emptiness you felt
Will disappear


Lord knows
Dreams are hard to follow
But don't let anyone
Tear them away
Hold on
There will be tomorrow
In time
You'll find the way
