Heroes was the Swedish entry at the Eurovision Song Contest 2015 in Vienna by Måns Zelmerlöw. An up-tempo anthem featuring front-projected visual effects, it was the hot favorite going into the contest after breaking several records at the 2015 edition of Melodifestivalen.

The song easily qualified from the second semifinal. In the grand final, it was performed 10th following Norway and preceding Cyprus. At the close of voting, it was declared the winner with 365 points, giving Sweden its sixth victory overall.

Lyrics

Don't tell the gods I left a mess
I can't undo what has been done
Let's run for cover

What if I'm the only hero left
You better fire off your gun
Once and forever

He said go dry your eyes
And live your life like there is no tomorrow, son
And tell the others
To go sing it like a hummingbird
The greatest anthem ever heard

We are the heroes of our time
But we're dancing with the demons in our minds

We are the heroes of our time
Heroes

But we're dancing with the demons in our minds
Heroes

We are the heroes of our time
Heroes

But we're dancing with the demons in our minds
Heroes

The crickets sing a song for you
Don't say a word don't make a sound
It's life's creation

I make worms turn into butterflies
Wake up and turn this world around
In appreciation

He said I never left your side
When you were lost I followed right behind
Was your foundation

Now go sing it like a hummingbird
The greatest anthem ever heard
Now sing together

We are the heroes of our time
Heroes

But we're dancing with the demons in our minds
Heroes

We are the heroes

(We keep dancing with the demons)
(You could be a hero)

Now go sing it like a hummingbird
The greatest anthem ever heard
Now sing together

We are the heroes of our time
Heroes

But we're dancing with the demons in our minds
Heroes

We are the heroes of our time
Heroes

But we're dancing with the demons in our minds
Heroes

We are the heroes

Trivia

  • Both Ann Sophie and The Makemakes did their own parodies of the song after the contest on social media, replacing the word "heroes" with "zeroes" as they both scored nul points in the final.
