Heroes (We Could Be) - Alesso ft. Tove Lo


The ExperienceWe could be heroes, me and you... All we're lookin' is love and a little light... What makes the hero isn't just the power. It's also the heart that cares, and the friend who supports...



Music video: Alesso breaks into a secret prison where people with special gifts have been stowed away and experimented on. Cell by cell, he's searching for the girl with wings, until he finds her and frees her. Two elements jump out. First of all, Alesso is wearing a key, which is often a bondage symbol, but here means something totally different - the gift of freedom. Second, when Alesso and the girl are cornered, he tells her that he too can fly. It's not true, but it's what it takes to get her to fly off when she doesn't want to leave him behind.  


Meaning of Heroes (We Could Be): The song itself is a very realistic look at what makes for a hero. It's not just power or qualities - w
e are a different kind, we can do anything. They only give you the possibility of being a hero - we could be heroes. Instead, what makes the difference is first of all your heart: the fact that you aren't an uncaring loner - you and me. And second, the people who love and support you - All we're lookin' is love and a little light. Without those two things, you will spend your whole life undercover, afraid of the sun.

Ask yourself: When it's up to you, do you let others be heroes? Even when you have to take the fall?

LYRICS:

We go hideaway in daylight
We go undercover, wait out the sun
Got a secret side in plain sight
Where the streets are empty
That’s where we run 

Everyday people do
Everyday things but I
Can’t be one of them
I know you hear me now
We are a different kind
We can do anything

We could be heroes
We could be heroes
Me and you
We could be heroes
We could be heroes
Me and you
We could be

Anybody’s got the power
They don’t see it
‘Cos they don’t understand
Spin around and run for hours
You and me we got the world in our hands

Everyday people do
Everyday things but I
Can’t be one of them
I know you hear me now
We are a different kind
We can do anything

We could be heroes
We could be heroes
Me and you
We could be heroes
We could be heroes
Me and you
We could be

We could be heroes
We could be heroes
Me and you
We could be

All we're lookin' is love and a little light
We could be
All we're lookin' for is love and a little light
We could be

We could be heroes
We could be heroes
Me and you
We could be
