songs about what it means to be a hero?

Another piece of homework help. I have a project about heroes and one part is: find a song about what it means to be a hero, copy out the lyrics and write what you think the writer means by the lyrics. Stupid, I know but does anyone know any songs? ASAP thanks so much!

    "A Hero is an Ordinary individual who finds the strength to persevere and endure in spite of the overwhelming obstacles." - Christopher Reeve

    "It doesn't take a hero to order men into battle. It takes a hero to be one of those men going into battle." - Norman Schwarzkopf

    "A person doesn't have to go to war to be a hero. They can say they don't like pie when there isn't enough to go around." - E.W. Howe

    These songs all have something to do (from my perspective) with the expectaionts we have and how we define heroes. It doesn't have to be someone who got their start on a comic book page. Soliders going to war. Police and fire fighters. The person you can go to for any little thing. Even the hero inside all of us. It doesn't have to be something big. Someone who shows courage, strength, sacrifice, where there isn't any being offered up. I've tried to list songs that have examples of all this. Hopefully they help with your homework.

    This Love, This Hate - Hollywood Undead

    [In a time of need only few can see what's wrong

    and we've got each others backs until we're back where we belong,]

    Your Guardian Angel - Red Jumpsuit Apparatus

    War of Change - TFK

    [It's a truth that in love and war,

    World's collide and hearts get broken,

    I want to live like I know I'm dying,
