Heroes InfoEdit

Heroesalbumcover
"War Child: Heroes" was released Febuary 16, 2009. It was a charity album to help aid efforts in war-stricken areas, such as Iraq, Uganda, Afghanistan and the Democratic Republic of Congo.

War Child asked 15 famous musicians to select a song from their catalogue and an newer artist to create a unique cover of that track. So Bruce Springsteen himself picked none other than The Hold Steady to cover this classic song.

LyricsEdit

Well, they blew up the Chicken Man in Philly last night
Blew up his house too
Down on the boardwalk they're gettin ready for a fight
Gonna see what these racket boys can do
There's trouble bustin in from outta state
and the D.A. can't get no relief
Gonna be a rumble out on the promenade
and the gambling commission's hanging on by the skin of his teeth
Everything dies, that's a fact
Maybe everything that dies someday comes back
Put your make-up on, fix your hair up pretty
and meet me tonight in Atlantic City

Got a job and tried to put some money away
but I got debts that no honest man can pay
so I took what I had from the central trust
and I got us two tickets on that coast city bus

Everything dies, that's a fact
Maybe everything that dies someday comes back
Put your make-up on, make your hair look pretty
and meet me tonight in Atlantic City

And now our luck may have died and our love's gone cold
but with you forever I'll stay
We're going out tonight where the sand's turned to gold
Put on your stocking's girl, the night's getting cold
Everything dies, that's a fact
Maybe everything that dies someday comes back

Now, I been looking for a job, but it's hard to find
Down here it's just winners and losers
and don't get caught on the wrong side of that line
Tired of comin out on the losin end
Last night I met this guy and I'm gonna do a favor for him
Last night I met this guy and I'm gonna do a favor for him
Last night I met this guy and I'm gonna do a favor for him
Last night I met this guy
Last night I met this guy
Last night I met this guy and I'm gonna do a favor for him

Everything dies, that's a fact
Maybe everything that dies someday comes back
Everything dies, that's a fact
Maybe everything that dies someday comes back
Everything dies, that's a fact
Maybe everything that dies someday comes back
Everything dies, that's a fact
Maybe everything that dies someday comes back
Everything dies, that's a fact
Maybe everything that dies someday comes back
Everything dies, that's a fact
