Heroes At Forty

Well you thought it would last forever but you know it all comes to an end.

Like before you can't see any problems but there's nothing on which to depend

When you're one of those

Heroes at forty - riding away into the sunset.

One of those

Heroes at forty - looking back on your life.

Well the fame and the fortune you dreamed of came along with the flash of a smile.

Now the lines and the flashes of silver tell a tale when they're put to the trial

That you're one of those

Heroes at forty - riding away into the sunset

One of those

Heroes at forty - looking back on your life.

Well there ain't any use in pretending but it's not quite as bad as it seems

And if acting your age is the secret then it's only the end not the means

Of being a

Hero at forty - riding away into the sunset

One of those heroes at forty - looking back on your life.
