Dead Heroes

The Giving Tree Band - Vacilador

Featured on:

What do you do when your heroes are dead

The laughs are out and it’s all been said

What do you do when you’re all alone again

 

What do you do when the money’s all gone

The trees are cut and the paper’s worn

What do you do when you can’t get blood from a stone

 

What do you do when the church bell rings

And God’s gone on to finer things

What do you do when you have no songs to sing

 

You move it on

 

What do you do when your heroes are dead

The lies are out and it’s all been said

What do you do when your nights are cold and lonely

 

What do you do when the water’s run dry

And tears like rain don’t fall from the sky

What do you do when the only word’s “goodbye”

 

What do you do when the church bell rings

And God’s gone on to finer things

What do you do when we have no songs to sing

 

You move it on

 

Just as the wheel turns

My heart still burns

And I’m waiting on the rains to calm my flames

 

Just as the river flows

My love still grows

Now I’m waiting on you to wait on me

 

Just as the day is long

My back is still strong

And I can carry that weight all the way home

 

And you can run

But you can’t hide it

I’m gonna find out what you had in mind.
