"We All Need a Hero", alternatively "My Hero", is a song in Death Note: The Musical.

OverviewEdit

After seeing Misa Amane's concert, Light Yagami tells Sayu Yagami that he liked the opening when Misa thanked her "beloved hero" Kira. But Sayu says she didn't like that part. When Light asks her what she would say to Kira if she could, she would tell Kira to be more like her brother, and she sings this song about how Light's her hero. Resting after her performance, Misa begins singing the song as well, but she's singing about how Kira is her hero instead. Although he doesn't sing, Light moves center stage with Ryuk, halfway between Sayu and Misa, symbolically split between the two opposing aspects of himself.

English versionEdit

The song was originally written in English, but an English-language version has not been released. The original English title of the song is "We All Need a Hero".[1]

On October 13, 2017, script-writer Ivan Menchell shared the English lyrics when a fan asked him on Twitter.[2]

English lyrics

[Sayu]
When I get afraid
And all hope is gone
I reach for your hand
And I go on
'Cause someone like you
Who's scared, but won't run
Is standing his ground for everyone

Because the best of us
Can come from anyplace
Helping the rest of us
To face what we must face

We all need a hero
Somebody to help us to be brave
We all need a hero
And someone he can save

We all need a hero
Believing that deep inside
We'll find there is
Some kind of hero, too
Like the one I found in you

[Ryuk (spoken)]
She must have you confused with someone else.

[Sayu]
And so, win or lose
You fight the good fight
As long as you try with all your might
A heart that is strong
A heart that is true
A heart that will risk it all to do

Whatever he can do
When something must be done
Showing us we can do
The same thing one by one

We all need a hero
To rush in and try to save the day
We all need a hero
For dragons yet to slay

We all need a hero
To show us that deep inside
We'll find their lives
A kind of hero, too
[Sayu/Misa]
Like the one I found in you

A dreamer catching dreams
A light that's always burning bright
Chasing the dark from the night

[Sayu]
We all need a hero
Somebody to help us to be brave
[Misa]
We all need a hero
And causes lost to save

[Sayu/Misa]
We all need a hero
Believing that deep inside
We'll find there is
Some kind of hero, too
Like the one I found in you

Japanese lyricsEdit

[Sayu (spoken)]
正しいことをするつもりなんだろうけど、間違いだって。もっと深く考えて、思い遣りを持ってって……そう。お兄ちゃんみたいになってって言うかな。

[Sayu]
辛い時ただそばに 寄りそってくれる人
大切なものをいつも 見失わない人
空を飛べる翼はない 魔法だって使えないけど

理想のヒーロー 立ち向かう勇気を
いつもくれる その笑顔で
私のヒーロー クールだけれど
誰より優しい人 兄貴のように

[Ryuk (spoken)]
お前のこと、大分誤解してるみたいだな。

[Sayu]
強さより正しさを 大切にする人
誠実にまっすぐに チャレンジを続ける
不可能だと思うことも 諦めずに立ち向かう人

理想のヒーロー 生きていく強さを
見せてくれる その背中で
自分のヒーロー 心の中に誰もが持ってるはず

[Misa]
私のように

[Sayu & Misa]
泣いてる人
見捨てたりしない
どんな時にも

[Sayu]
理想のヒーロー
生きていく強さを

[Misa]
見せてくれる
その背中で

[Sayu & Misa]
自分のヒーロー
心の中に誰もが持ってるはず
私のように
私のように
