I don't wanna let you down

But you've got wrong impressions all around

Not as smart, not as strong as they think I am

Just forget it, you'll never understand.


I'm not your hero

I'm just another zero

Go, look to someone else,

Not to me for help.

The pressure is getting to me.

Fulfilling your idea of me,

Being who I seem to be.

It's hard work you see.

Trying to act like a hero,

When I'm really a zero


I don't want to let you fall.

But I know one day I'll fail you all.

Not as good or cool as they think

But they never listen to me.


I'm not your hero

I'm just another zero

Go, look to someone else,

Not to me for help.

The pressure is getting to me.

Fulfilling your idea of me,

Being who I seem to be.

It's hard work you see.

Trying to act like a hero,

When I'm really a zero


You're being deceived.

I'm not who you perceive

Me to be

Listen to me!

If you knew, would you still approve?

Would you still look up at me?

Be there for me?

If you knew?

That I wasn't all that smart, that I'm not that strong.

That I cry a lot and I'm always wrong.


Would I still be your hero?

Or would I be a zero?

Would there be someone else

You turn to for help?

I can't let you down, but it's so much pressure.

I feel inferior, useless, and lesser.

I'm a fool in dress-up clothes, trying to act the part.

I just don't have a courageous, heroic heart.

Not much of a hero.

I'm just another zero.
