Royce Da 5’9″ – Hero Lyrics

Hero By Royce Da 5’9″

Crown royal bag open watching boxing
Arguing with dad, who gon’ knock who out, s---
He probably gon’ be mad if my fighter drops his
And that’s exactly what happened, now he got me moppin’, dammit
Okay

Papa was my hero, without him, I’d be zero
Probably six feet below, probably sniffing kilos
Probably homicidal robbery for all that we know
Stayed on top of me, make sure that I achieved
Even more than I believed that I can be though
Okay, [light] saw a toothbrush, scrubbing on the toilet bowl
Soon as they cut the street lights off – you rush home, n----
You must be on time at all times
You gon’ get the stool ’cause you won’t miss your school bus
Papa was psychotic, mama was a goddess
Big bro had a dome [?] I grew up a screw up
Cop the Book of Ryan, n----, don’t listen to us
Even though sometimes a n---- home would get abusive
But papa showed us tough love, don’t misconstrue us
I talked about his past, I thought I did it with respect
But I’m just dragging all these bags, and all these feelings is suppressed
I’m just the artist, and anytime I write – I put the art first
In retrospect, I feel like you right: we should’ve talked first
I apologize

To my hero, without him, I’d be zero
I probably six feet below, I probably sniffing kilos
Robberies at college, how do we know
Getting in the dramas – easy, finding peace – is hard as find a Nemo
Diss ’cause out of y’all grew up without a hero
Uh, seventeen – you tell me to go to the army
Or get out, I had to walk, and as I’m walking out
I started having thoughts of all this happened over years
And we swept under the rug and never talked about
Wasn’t until I let go with a grudge
Let all these feelings on my heart get out
I got all the blessings the reverend talks about
I agree: a lot of things between him and I should be TMI
Y’all can call me anything, but me ain’t lie
I just write the truth to free my mind for the [b-m-i]
Uh, not only did I finally realize: there is a God
I realize a n---- highly favored
One thing is phenomenal with the day I decided to hold myself accountable for my behavior
My bank account would grow
All of the things that poppa instilled beside me was like a common denominator
I flew out to NY, said, I’m living here till I get deal
Came back a year later signed to a major
Papa, I just want you to keep my mama happy
She stayed right there beside you to all this time
She went above and beyond faithful
And you inspired me to get dollars but my way like Carlito
I retire you as soon as I’m able
My hero (My hero)

Look what you’ve done (My hero)
Look what you’ve done (My hero)
We used to sweep problems under the rug
We used to barely show any emotion
Maybe this was ideal love (My hero)
Look what you’ve done (My hero)
Look what you’ve done (My hero)
We used to sweep problems under the rug
We used to barely show any emotion
Maybe this was ideal love (My hero)
