I've seen all the downfalls
Temporary Heroes (Whoa)
Misguided direction
Longing for perfection (Whoa)
Love and pain
Only for the foolish
Once again
Try to hide what's there inside
I'm the same, Temporary Hero
Who's to blame

Rituals and movements
Much too soon improvements
Hide many scars)
Others and ours
Too late to discover
This untainted love is
Destined to be)
A sad memory

Love and pain
Only for the foolish
Once again
Try to hide what's there inside
I'm the same, Temporary Hero
Who's to blame

So you take your chances
Watchful of the glances
But don't turn away
Though the wounds are healing
Don't tell me the feelings the same

Love and pain
Only for the foolish
Once again
Try to hide what's there inside
I'm the same, Temporary Hero
Who's to blame
