Last month, I had the immense pleasure of visiting Madison Square Garden in New York for the first time — that pleasure was only compounded by the fact that I was there to see Illenium on his new Ascend live tour. But before the main event, Said The Sky, Dabin, and Adventure Club all put on stellar performances of their own.


It was during Dabin’s set as MSG opened and began to fill up that I heard “Hero” for the first time, and let me tell you, the reaction from the crowd was nothing short of electric. Now, the collaboration between Said The Sky and Dabin, with Olivver the Kid, is finally here.

“Hero” is the second collaboration from Said The Sky and Dabin, following “Superstar” from the former’s album Wide-Eyed last year. It’s safe to say this is a brilliant sequel, especially with the wonderful voice of Olivver. You’ll be singing along to “I wanna be a hero!” in no time.

Check it out below.

Said The Sky, Dabin, & Olivver the Kid – Hero [Lyrics]

[Intro]
I was just calling to say “Hi”
And I had a really long day
And would just love to hear your voice now
Shoot me a call back

[Verse 1]
Feeling sentimental when I stop and think about it
I remember when I had what I wanted
You were waiting by the lake like you promised
Water falling from my mouth like a faucet
Falling backwards in slow motion to the sound of
Your voice on the phone it gave me good luck
Now you’re gone but I’ll always have a taste
I can settle for your voice if I can’t have your face

[Pre-Chorus]
I was making you a playlist
Kings of Leon and Oasis
Tell me how can I make this better for you

[Chorus]
I wanna be a hero
Someone who can save you when it’s tough
I wanna be a hero
Someone who can give you all that love
I wanna be a hero
When you’re scared and when it’s rough
I wanna be a hero
Would I ever really be enough?
I wanna be a hero

[Post-Chorus]
I wanna be a hero

[Verse 2]
It feels detrimental that we stop and talk about it
We can find out what we both wanted
Doesn’t have to be a fight when we talk
But please don’t walk away from me
Tripping over my own words like a boulder
Need someone to lean on like a shoulder
Instead I have my own thoughts in the rain
Wish I could be right back inside your place

[Pre-Chorus]
I was making you a playlist
Kings of Leon and Oasis
Tell me how can I make this better for you

[Chorus]
I wanna be a hero
Someone who can save you when it’s tough
I wanna be a hero
Someone who can give you all that love
I wanna be a hero
When you’re scared and when it’s rough
I wanna be a hero
Would I ever really be enough?
I wanna be a hero

[Post-Chorus]
I wanna be a hero
I wanna be a hero
I wanna be a hero

[Outro]
I wanna be a hero
(I wanna be a hero)
(Whoa-oa)
