(I Refuse To Be) Your Hero


Get Flash to see this player.

Description
This is the last addition to my album Green. The song is about my old man obviously, who seemed to have given up to get a job and just sulking until recently. Now he finally got a part time job and seems to recover his dignity a little bit.

Lyrics
(i refuse to be) your hero

i dont remember since when he has quit
my hero but he surely is not it

his trade-mark suits have been thrown away
and he seems to try to walk away

i refuse to be your hero
so please get up from the place below
when my hero fails and goes down on his knees
i'd just take his hand and help him up on his feet
help him up on his feet

why i cant be just your son i dont see
if im helping you then who would help me?

his trade-mark suits have been thrown away
and he seems to try to fade away

i refuse to be your hero
so please get up from the place below
when my hero fails and goes down on his knees
i'd just take his hand and help him up on his feet
help him up on his feet

i refuse to be your hero
so please get up from the place below
no i dont want you to quit
no i dont want you to quit
no its not the time to quit
no its never gonna be the time to quit
you cant quit my hero
you cant quit my hero
you will always be my hero

You've got a very fresh and unique sound. Lots of great guitar work and I
really like the story of the song. Lots of interesting changes throughout.
The production is excellent. I enjoyed it very much. Good luck with the
album. Maybe you can offer it through SiMig Media.

hello there! thanks for commenting on my track too!
you liked to story? cool! thanks very much!
yeah, i hope to offer my music through Sig Mig Media, but im not
sure if my music is good enough for it just yet.... tobin and pdgreestone
are great great muscians whereas mine is just okay.... especially my vocals
really suck! so maybe with a different voice, it would be possible!
but who knows? thanks for your comment anyway!

Encouragement
Very happy that you are coming out with a recording. This is a solid tune,
solid arrangement. You are a wonderful songwriter. Be careful of the over
use of cymbals and identical drum fills. Highlight your great guitar work,
especially your acoustic guitar. I love the intimacy of your sound (your
original GREEN). The roughness of your vocals is something I cherish, my
ears don't want it covered over with too much backing band "polish." I like
that this is a song of encouragement. You definitely have mine. (I prefer
you over Smashing Pumpkins any day.)

Your music
Just keeps getting better and better. Musically it's very solid but it's the
lyrics I find to be the most compelling here. Your words and subject
matter seems to have matured since you hit 3-0. Nice job on this one, JH!

Wonderful Again
JH, I'm such a big fan of your music and I love your lyrics every time. I
think the vocals on this are far from lame. I enjoy your singing as much
as the great guitar and poppy melodies that always pop up in your
work. I don't think anyone should sing your stuff but you; it's part of
your unique sound. SiMig would be lucky to have you!

You sure you were not English in your previous life?
My Dad would have been touched and humored by this song. You have a
talent for making musical representations of commonplace everyday
things in life and injecting them with melodic fun and humor, just like you
did with "3-0." What makes it even more amazing is that you don't even
speak English in your day to day life, yet you capture those essences with
the mastery of a pop maestro. Thanks, Jes.

I hear....
... a little Billy Corgan in your voice. Is that intentional or just the way it comes out? Nice arrangement btw.
