  • Hero

    V1
    I'm just a step away
    I'm just a breath away
    Losing my faith today
    (Falling off the edge today)

    I am just a man
    Not superhuman
    (I'm not superhuman)
    Someone save me from the hate

    Pre
    It's just another war
    Just another family torn
    (Falling from my faith today)
    Just a step from the edge
    Just another day in the world we live

    Chorus
    I need a hero to save me now
    I need a hero
    (Save me now)
    I need a hero to save my life
    A hero'll save me
    (Just in time)

    V2
    I gotta fight today
    To live another day
    Speaking my mind today
    (My voice will be heard today)

    I’ve gotta make a stand
    But I am just a man
    (I'm not superhuman)
    My voice will be heard today

    Pre
    It's just another war
    Just another family torn
    (My voice will be heard today)
    It's just another kill
    The countdown begins to destroy ourselves

    Bridge
    Who's gonna fight for what's right
    Who's gonna help us survive

    We're in the fight of our lives

    (And we're not ready to die)

    Who's gonna fight for the weak
    Who's gonna make 'em believe
    I've got a hero
    (I've got a hero)

    Living in me

    I'm gonna fight for what’s right
    Today I'm speaking my mind

    And if it kills me tonight

    (I will be ready to die)
    A hero's not afraid to give his life
    A hero's gonna save me just in time

  • Monster

    V1
    The secret side of me
    I never let you see
    I keep it caged but I can't control it
    So stay away from me
    The beast is ugly
    I feel the rage and I just can't hold it

    It's scratching on the walls
    In the closet, in the halls
    It comes awake and I can't control it
    Hiding under the bed
    In my body, in my head
    Why won't somebody come and save me from this
    make it end

    Chorus
    I feel it deep within
    It's just beneath the skin
    I must confess that I feel like a monster
    I hate what I've become
    The nightmare's just begun
    I must confess that I feel like a monster
    I feel like a monster

    V2
    My secret side I keep
    Hid under lock and key
    I keep it caged but I can't control it
    ’Cause if I let him out
    He'll tear me up, break me down
    Why won't somebody come and save me from this make it end

    Bridge:
    It’s hiding in the dark
    Its teeth are razor sharp
    There's no escape for me
    It wants my soul it wants my heart

    No one can hear me scream
    Maybe it’s just a dream
    Or maybe it’s inside of me
    Stop this monster

  • Don't Wake Me

    V1
    I went to bed I was thinking about you
    Ain’t the same since I'm living without you
    All the memories are getting colder
    All the things that I wanna do over

    Went to bed I was thinking about you
    I wanna talk and laugh like we used to
    When I see you in my dreams at night
    It's so real but it’s in my mind

    Pre
    And now
    I guess
    This is as good as it gets

    Chorus:
    Don't wake me
    ’Cause I don't wanna leave this dream
    Don't wake me
    ’Cause I never seem to stay asleep enough
    When it's you I'm dreaming of
    I don't wanna wake up

    Don't wake me
    We're together just you and me
    Don't wake me
    ’Cause we're happy like we used to be
    I know I've gotta let you go
    But don't wake me

    V2
    I went to bed I was thinking about you
    And how it felt when I finally found you
    It's like a movie playing over in my head
    Don't wanna look ’cause i know how it ends
    All the words that I said that I wouldn't say
    All the promises I made that I wouldn't break
    It’s last call, last song, last dance
    ’Cause I can't get you back, can't get a second chance

    And now, I guess
    This is as good as it gets

    Bridge
    These dreams of you keep on growing stronger
    It ain’t a lot but it’s all I have
    Nothing to do but keep sleeping longer
    Don't wanna stop cause I want you back

  • Awake And Alive

    V1
    I'm at war with the world and they
    Try to pull me into the dark
    I struggle to find my faith
    As I'm slippin’ from your arms

    It's getting harder to stay awake
    And my strength is fading fast
    You breathe into me at last

    Chorus
    I'm awake I'm alive
    Now I know what I believe inside
    Now it's my time
    I'll do what I want ’cause this is my life
    here, right now
    I'll stand my ground and never back down
    I know what I believe inside
    I'm awake and I'm alive

    V2
    I’m at war with the world cause I
    Ain’t never gonna sell my soul
    I've already made up my mind
    No matter what I can’t be bought or sold

    When my faith is getting weak
    And I feel like giving in
    You breathe into me again

    Bridge
    Waking up waking up

    In the dark
    I can feel you in my sleep
    In your arms I feel you breathe into me
    Forever hold this heart that I will give to you
    Forever I will live for you

  • One Day Too Late
    DOWNLOAD

    V1
    Tick tock hear the clock countdown
    Wish the minute hand could be rewound
    So much to do and so much I need to say
    Will tomorrow be too late

    Feel the moment slip into the past
    Like sand through an hourglass
    In the madness I guess I just forget
    To do all the things I said

    Pre
    Time passes by
    Never thought I'd wind up
    One step behind
    Now I've made my mind up

    Chorus
    Today I'm gonna try a little harder
    Gonna make every minute last longer
    Gonna learn to forgive and forget
    ’Cause we don't have long, gonna make the most of it

    Today I'm gonna love my enemies
    Reach out to somebody who needs me
    Make a change, make the world a better place
    ’Cause tomorrow could be one day too late
    One day too late
    One day too late

    V2
    Tick tock hear my life pass by
    I can't erase and I can't rewind
    Of all the things I regret the most I do...
    Wish I'd spent more time with you

    Here's my chance for a new beginning
    I saved the best for a better ending
    And in the end I'll make it up to you, you'll see
    You'll get the very best of me

    Bridge
    Your time is running out
    You’re never gonna get it back
    Make the most of every moment
    Stop saving the best for last

  • It's Not Me It's You
    DOWNLOAD

    V1
    Let’s get the story straight
    You were a poison
    You flooded through my veins
    You left me broken
    You tried to make me think
    That the blame was all on me
    With the pain you put me through
    And now I know that it's not me it's you

    Chorus
    It's not me it’s you
    Always has been you
    All the lies and stupid things you say and do
    It’s you
    It’s not me it's you
    All the lies and pain you put me through
    I know that it’s not me it’s you

    You
    You
    It’s not me it’s you, you

    V2
    So here we go again
    The same fight we're always in
    I don't care so why pretend
    Wake me when your lecture ends
    You tried to make me small
    Make me fall and it’s all your fault
    With the pain you put me through
    And now I know that it’s not me it’s you

    Bridge
    Let’s get the story straight
    You were a poison
    Flooding through my veins
    Driving me insane
    And now you're gone away
    I'm no longer choking
    From the pain you put me through
    And now I know that it's not me it's you

  • Should've When You Could've
    DOWNLOAD

    V1
    I'm done wondering where you've been
    All night long when you're out with your friends
    All you say, that the matter's over
    But now that chapter's over

    I'm done trusting you it's ended
    Even after I catch you red handed
    You could've been my only one
    But now your chance is gone

    Chorus
    You should've when you could've
    You're gonna miss my love girl
    You should, it would've been so good
    You should've when I would've
    Now I know I've had enough
    Better luck next time girl
    You should, it would've been so good

    V2
    I'm done chasing you all over
    May as well be chasing after thunder
    Play hard to get if it makes you happy
    For a change now you can start chasing me

    Don't cry cause I ain’t your sure thing
    It ain’t my fault you don't know a good thing
    You could've been my only one
    But now your chance is gone

    Bridge
    Don't you understand
    Don't wanna be your backup plan
    Now I won't be here to clean up when it hits the fan

    You tried to keep me on your leash
    It's time you started chasing me

    V3
    I'm done acting like I won't be
    Sitting here still wishing you wanted me
    Don't say that I never told you
    Take some advice from somebody who knows

  • Believe
    DOWNLOAD

    V1
    I'm still trying to figure out how to tell you I was wrong
    I can’t fill the emptiness inside since you’ve been gone
    So is it you or is it me?
    I know I said things that I didn't mean
    But you should've known me by now
    You should've known me

    Chorus
    If you believed
    When I said
    I’d be better off without you
    Then you never really knew me at all
    If you believed
    When I said
    That I wouldn't be thinking about you
    You thought you knew the truth but you’re wrong
    You’re all that I need
    Just tell me that you still believe

    V2
    I can’t undo the things that led us to this place
    But I know there’s something more to us than our mistakes
    So is it you or is it me
    I know I'm so blind when we don't agree
    But you should've known me by now
    You should've known me

    Cuz you’re all that I want
    Don’t you even know me at all
    You’re all that I need
    Just tell me that you still believe

  • Forgiven
  • Sometimes
    DOWNLOAD

    V1
    Sometimes when I lie
    I know you're on to me
    Sometimes I don't mind
    How hateful that I can be

    Sometimes I don't try
    To make you happy
    I don't know why I do the things I do to you but...

    Chorus
    Sometimes I don't wanna be better
    Sometimes I can't be put back together
    Sometimes I find it hard to believe
    There's someone else who could be
    Just as messed up as me

    V2
    Sometimes don't deny
    That everything is wrong
    Sometimes rather die
    Than to admit it's my fault

    Sometimes when you cry
    I just don't care at all
    I don't know why I do the things I do to you but...

    Bridge
    I want someone to hurt
    Like the way I hurt
    It's sick but it makes me feel better

    V3
    Sometimes I can't hide
    The demons that I face
    Sometimes don't deny
    I'm sometimes sinner sometimes saint

  • Never Surrender
    DOWNLOAD

    V1
    Do you know what it's like when
    You're scared to see yourself
    Do you know what it's like when
    You wish you were someone else
    Who didn't need your help to get by
    Do you know what it's like
    To wanna surrender

    Chorus
    I don't wanna feel like this tomorrow
    I don't wanna live like this today
    Make me feel better
    I wanna feel better
    Stay with me here
    And never surrender

    V2
    Do you now what it's like when
    You're not who you wanna be
    Do you know what it's like to
    Be your own worst enemy
    Who sees the things in me I can't hide
    Do you know what it's like to wanna surrender

    Bridge
    Make me feel better
    You make me feel better
    You make me feel better
    Put me back together

  • Lucy
    DOWNLOAD

    V1
    Hey Lucy, I remember your name
    I left a dozen roses on your grave today
    I'm in the grass on my knees, wipe the leaves away
    I just came to talk for a while
    I got some things I need to say

    Chorus
    Now that it's over
    I just wanna hold her
    I'd give up all the world to see that little piece of heaven looking
    back at me
    Now that it's over
    I just wanna hold her
    I've gotta live with the choices i made
    And I can't live with myself today

    V2
    Hey Lucy, I remembered your birthday
    They said it'd bring some closure to say your name
    I know I'd do it all different if I had the chance
    But all I got are these roses to give
    And they can't help me make amends

    Bridge
    Here we are
    Now you're in my arms
    I never wanted anything so bad
    Here we are
    For a brand new start
    Living the life that we could've had

    Me and Lucy walking hand in hand
    Me and Lucy never wanna end
    Just another moment in your eyes
    I'll see you in another life
    In heaven where we never say goodbye

    Bridge
    Here we are, now you're in my arms
    Here we are for a brand new start
    Got to live with the choices I’ve made
    And I can’t live with myself today

    Me and Lucy walking hand in hand
    Me and Lucy never wanna end
    Got to live with the choices I’ve made
    And I can’t live with myself today

    Hey Lucy, I remember your name

Alexandre@k3's picture

Eu quase chorei escutando esse album PARABENS!!!

Amos1616's picture

From Awake, Hero is the best song on my opinions.

I'm going to the concert tonight in Bethlehem, Pa. It's going to be my first Skillet concert. I wish I could meet the band to tell them their song "Never Surrender" saved me from killing myself. I suffer from depression and I was feeling suicidal one day and a friend told me about the song. The lyrics saved me. So thanks to the band I'm still here. I have the album Awake and live it! I can't wait to see them tonight!

JasonRalston's picture

Just noticed for the new album, that every video of live footage of the band and in both videos for the new album that John is not playing bass. Do they now have someone else playing bass for them so he can just sing or is something else going on?

Great album, my first from Skillet.

rahi24's picture

Actually, Hero was the first ever song I listened to by Skillet and it was featured on an advert for the TV show Merlin, then I searched the internet for days to find it!!
