My Hero

Foo Fighters

 

This Foo Fighters track really resonated with me. It has a catchy hook and when you delve into the lyrics and discover the inspiration for Dave Grohl writing this song, it means so much more.

Dave Grohl didn’t have CF people in mind when writing this song. He did however wish to acknowledge the ‘average Joe’ who goes on with their business no matter what.

I feel this sums up people with CF. We get on with our lives, facing challenges as they come along.

I don’t know if my donor was an average Joe or not, but this person would not have been expecting to enable me to spend more time with family and friends, travel, drink good coffee…drink bad coffee.

That to me is a hero.


My Hero

Lyrics by Dave Grohl, Nate Mendel and Pat Smear

 

Too alarming now to talk about

Take your pictures down and shake it out

Truth or consequence, say it aloud

Use that evidence, race it around

There goes my hero

Watch him as he goes

There goes my hero

He’s ordinary

Don’t the best of them bleed it out

While the rest of them peter out

Truth or consequence, say it aloud

Use that evidence, race it around

There goes my hero

Watch him as he goes

There goes my hero

He’s ordinary

Kudos my hero

Leave them all the mess

You know my hero

The one that’s on

There goes my hero

Watch him as he goes

There goes my hero

He’s ordinary

There goes my hero

Watch him as he goes

There goes my hero

He’s ordinary
