  • Lyrics: The Hero – by Kritzer & Lehman And as the dawn breaks, The hero comes home, Always uncertain, Always alone He wears on his chest, The medals of old, But he keeps in his heart, The wound ever cold, He carries it with him, Alone in his bed, And sleeps with an angel, To ward off the dead, And when he awakes, His pillow’s all wet, He turns up the sheets, And pretends that it’s sweat, One merciful night, He’ll no longer arise, And the pain of the warrior, Will pass from his eyes, He carries it with him, Alone in his bed, And sleeps with an angel, To ward off the dead, And when he awakes, His pillow’s all wet, He turns up the sheets, And pretends that it’s sweat, One merciful night, He’ll no longer arise, And the pain of the warrior, Will pass from his eyes, He carries it with him, Alone in his bed, And sleeps with an angel, To ward off the dead, He sleeps with an angel, To ward off the dead, He sleeps with an angel, To ward off the dead, copyright 2000 - Roger Lehman All Rights Reserved
