Jones, Howard - Hero In Your Eyes Lyrics

On my own again fighting with my fear
Starring down at the hard cold ground
Through the frozen tears
Background closing in
White light blur and ice
Hit the ground but not running
Within an inch of my life

Will I get through all this pain
I need the sound of hope to believe again

I hear your voice when they all laugh at me
It is my heart you see
And I still will be a hero in your eyes
Above the cutting words, your love can still be heard
And I still will be a hero in your eyes

Who could know the man I turned out to be
Crashing about in our old backyard sorry sight to see
A stubborn kid not talented a fire in his eye
Still you did what all good folks did
Believed that I would fly

Will I get through all this pain
I need the sound of hope to believe again

I hear your voice when they all laugh at me
It is my heart you see
And I still will be a hero in your eyes
Above the cutting words, your love can still be heard
And I still will be a hero in your eyes

Will I get through all this pain
I need the sound of hope
To believe again, to believe again

I hear your voice when they all laugh at me
It is my heart you see
And I still will be a hero in your eyes
Above the cutting words, your love can still be heard
And I still will be a hero in your eyes
When they all laugh at me
It is my heart you see
And I still will be a hero in your eyes
Above the cutting words, your love can still be heard
And I still will be a hero in your eyes

Jones, Howard Hero In Your Eyes Comments
  1. Tadeusz Laskowiecki

    Thank you Howard

  2. Subject98

    Damn, this song is beautiful. Never heard his music before but I'm into it.

  3. Nigey Taylor

    I swear Howard is from another dimension , sent to educate us about our ignorance towards one another !

  4. burnsport1

    The background slow motion clips of 80s Howard at the second chorus (2:12) makes for a beautiful sequence

  5. cantforgetyou

    Nice synths, drumcomputer and melody. Very emotional. One of his best work and songs.

  6. Chitral 'Chity' Somapala

    Genius (y)

  7. solartron


  8. Starlost

    I Like It

  9. Stiftzahn Heini

    Can't put the melody out of my head again. But i don't want to. Thanks Howard. Great minimalistic tune. Did you use equipment of Jean Michel Jarre?

  10. John

    Approaching my 50th now; but still excitedly remember Hanging around outside the Albert Hall in 1987 for the One to One tour, and Howard inviting us in to watch his sound check. HoJo Still rocking it in 2019.

  11. Jane Porter

    Great song!!💖💖💖💖💖

    Yes hoJo are back again, with an electroPop album finally. So roots to 80'. Wonderful! More...

  15. AtlantisIndigo

    You will always be a hero in my eyes HoJo. You are an amazing soul

  16. AtlantisIndigo

    Just got back from this concert. Boy can HoJo put on a show. ABSOLUTELY LOVED the remixing of his own stuff live! Go see this show. You will love it!

  17. Multi Retro Man

    Absolutely love this song! I was listening it in headphones and the noises going from side to side is amazing. The lyrics are so thought provoking too. I'm so glad you're still making new songs Howard!

  18. Mike Gardner

    Walls of sounds pleasure my ears

  19. Oldskool Heavyweights

    I left school in 87’ and now heading for 49 yrs old. I grew up on music diet of ‘Humans Lib’ and ‘Dream into Action’
    Epic legendary albums I still adore today.
    This track is incredible. Go HOJO 💙

  20. Robert NYCGUY Raised on Records

    The album is quite good. Bought it a few days ago on vinyl on Amazon. Darn missed his NYC SHOW THOUGH. I hope he comes back to NYC. I did a video unboxing in my channel a week ago and show his other LP's I purchased in the 80's. He's an inspiration. Saw him in concert 4 times in the 80's alone. TY for the new album HOJO.

  21. Eric Johnson

    Howard Jones has an excellent ear for modulation. Very smooth.

  22. The Banana

    18 dead heads av slipped n pressed the dislike button . never mind, he'll make another classic just like this is

  23. yoshiteru

    I've been waiting for so long.
    I'm glad I hear this song.
    Thank you.

  24. Roodian Pinedo

    Me encantó. Listo para escucharlo en Lima.

  25. Anders Lenart

    My seven-year-old girl couldn't stop dancing to this, so I danced with her. Let me be her hero just a little longer. Please.

  26. steveelmo1

    Went to see Howard Jones at the Bridgewater hall theatre in Manchester on Friday and China crisis supported him they were good but when Howard Jones came on stage the stage was empty apart from his piano he did one song then went behind a curtain and he burst into life with new songs and some old songs I went with my wife expecting to listen to his old songs we love but was amazed at the quality of his new songs it just proved to me that age and time doesn't stop you from being as good as you once where this track hero in my eyes was amazingly good so don't stop yet Howard

  27. anthony palmeri

    In 2006, he said: "My songs are not about drug-taking or debauchery or rock and roll. They're about positive thinking and challenging people's ideas. I wasn't fashionable. I never got good reviews. But I'm proud of the fact that I wasn't liked by the media... Pop music is so reactionary and bigoted. And I found that what's 'cool' is often very shallow and transient." this is why i have respected and loved his music since the 80s, such great talent.

  28. Edmondo Guidi


  29. Lynn Marie Anderson
