Lyrics

He drives into the city
Works extra hard all day
He finishes up early so he can get away

'Cause there's a blue-eyed kid on second base
Wants Dad to watch him play
Daddy knows he's waiting
So he hurries on his way

'Cause you know heroes come in every shape and size
Making special sacrifices for others in their lives
No one gives them medals, the world don't know their names
But in someone's eyes they're heroes just the same

She rocks her crying baby
In the hours before dawn
She whispers words of hope to help her husband to hold on

She takes time with the children
Making sure they know she cares
She's more then just a Momma, she's the answer to their prayers

'Cause you know heroes come in every shape and size
Making special sacrifices for others in their lives
No one gives them medals, the world don't know their names
But in someone's eyes they're heroes just the same

Now I don't pretend to know you
But I'll bet it's safe to say
There's someone out there somewhere looking up to you today

They see everything you do
Except for your mistakes
You may not think you measure up but you got all it takes

'Cause you know heroes come in every shape and size
Making special sacrifices for others in their lives
No one gives them medals, the world don't know their names
But in someone's eyes they're heroes just the same

No one gives them medals, the world don't know their names
But in someone's eyes they're heroes just the same

Yeah, in someone's eyes they're heroes
Just the same

Talking 'bout a hero
Special kind of hero
No ordinary hero
Special kind of hero, yeah
