Family of the Year - Hero

Sometimes, you hear a song that connects with your soul from the first listen. It's a lovely experience, really, and last night, I put an app called Shazam to good use in identifying the name of this tune that grabbed me within seconds.

Hero, by Family of the Year, feels like it was written for many of us during our coming of age years. Sometimes, you feel immense weight on your heart, and you just want to be free of worry and expectations.

I'm told that this song is a part of the soundtrack for a film that I'd really like to see - it's called Boyhood, and was shot over 12 years by Richard Linklater, chronicling the story of a boy and his family from the time he was 6. Remarkably, Richard cast the actors of this film when the lead was 6 years old, and they gathered once a year to continue shooting.

Back to Hero, I hope you have a listen below:

Lyrics for "Hero" by Family of the Year

Let me go
I don't wanna be your hero
I don't wanna be a big man
Just wanna fight with everyone else

Your masquerade
I don't wanna be a part of your parade
Everyone deserves a chance to
Walk with everyone else

While holding down
A job to keep my girl around
And maybe buy me some new strings
And her and I out on the weekends

And we can whisper things
Secrets from our American dreams
Baby needs some protection
But I'm a kid like everyone else

So let me go
I don't wanna be your hero
I don't wanna be a big man
I Just wanna fight like everyone else

Ooooohh

So let me go
I don't wanna be your hero
I don't wanna be a big man
I Just wanna fight with everyone else

Your masquerade
I don't wanna be a part of your parade
Everyone deserves a chance to
Walk with everyone else
