Dedicated to Uncle Rick, you'll always be a hero in my heart, and I will never forget you!


(VERSE ONE)

He wasn't Superman or a celebrity

He was a man who lived too short a life

But touched so many others within it

(Chorus)

And even though this world will never no him (like I did)

I know he'll always be……a hero (hero)

'Cause he touched so many others

And he suffered with such dignity

And even if it's only in my heart

I know he'll always be……a hero (hero)

(VERSE TWO)

He bore his pain so humbly

He didn't constantly complain

And he didn't go insane

(Chorus

And even though this world will never no him (like I did)

I know he'll always be……a hero (hero)

'Cause he touched so many others

And he suffered with such dignity

And even if it's only in my heart

I know he'll always be……a hero (hero)

(VERSE THREE)

When it was that time

Time for him to be called home

He wasn't glad to go, but he was ready

And he was a hero

(Chorus)

And even though this world will never no him (like I did)

I know he'll always be……a hero (hero)

'Cause he touched so many others

And he suffered with such dignity

And even if it's only in my heart

I know he'll always be……a hero (hero)

(VERSE FOUR)

When the calling hours began

I watched in amazement as the line went on (and on)

I had never fully realized, the impact, that he'd had in his life

That was when I realized (mmhmm)

That he was a hero….

(Chorus)

And even though this world will never no him (like I did)

I know he'll always be……a hero (hero)

'Cause he touched so many others

And he suffered with such dignity

And even if it's only in my heart

I know he'll always be……a hero (hero)

In my heart he'll always be…a hero….
