about

Money raised from this song will be donated to JDRF, a charity dedicated to funding type 1 diabetes research into finding a cure and improving the lives of those with the condition. The lyrics talk directly to the condition with a determination not to let it hold back the child who lives with it from achieving what they want in life.

lyrics

I am the hero
I’m the force you can’t defeat
never surrender
I rise to each challenge I meet
I am the hero
bring on tomorrow

You threw your worst at me
I was tougher than you thought
I could have run away
but I stood my ground and fought
I chose to do battle
take everything on and thrive
not scared of the future
with the courage to survive

I am the hero
I’m the force you can’t defeat
never surrender
I rise to each challenge I meet
I am the hero
bring on tomorrow

When I sense you’re winning
I reach out to those who care
I know I’m not alone
when the world’s not playing fair
You won’t hold back my dreams
I’ll achieve them with a smile
a warrior’s spirit
in the body of a child

You chase me but you’ll never take the lead
I’ll recognise you only when I need
you’re there but I push you to the shadows
you won’t define me or where my life goes

I am the hero
I’m the force you can’t defeat
never surrender
I rise to each challenge I meet
I am the hero
I am the hero

You can’t stop me
gaining in strength
a warrior’s spirit
never give up
I’m the hero
