Biography

My Only Hero is a four piece Alternative/Pop/Rock band from Leesburg, Florida that formed
in early 2008. After generating a local following, they moved to Orlando, Florida in mid 2009.
Since that point, their fanbase has been rapidly expanding in the Orlando/Metropoliton area. Also, through the
means of social networking, they have garnered a generous Scottish following.
Their sound can best be described as a fluid combination of Angels & Airwaves effects-laiden guitars and
synthesizers, with catchy melodies of bands such as the Goo Goo Dolls. Their self recorded and produced debut
6 track EP is due out January 2011. They have also spent countless hours on projects used to complement their music, such as
a self produced music video for their first single "Alone". With their catchy hooks, infectious melodies
and dynamic live performance, it's only a matter of time before this band is a household name.

Lyrics

Alone

Written By: Preston Saylor & Duncan Weachock

Watch you move, across the room
so beautiful I just can't close my eyes.
But it's our time, you and I
a miriacle I've built up in my mind

in my mind

I don't know where I've been going but,
I found a way back home but it's not enough,
'cause it's not home when you're not with me.
Slow dancing, spinning in circles now,
just watch our feet lift off the ground
but it's all a dream because I know
I just don't want to be alone.

Watch us fly, the sunset dies
you can't fight back the tears
that you don't cry
but then you're just in time,
but out of line
you're the only thing that can save
me from my life

from my life

I don't know where I've been going but,
I found a way back home but it's not enough,
'cause it's not home when you're not with me.
Slow dancing, spinning in circles now,
just watch our feet lift off the ground
but it's all a dream because I know
I just don't want to be alone.

I've been here for three long years so
I know what its like to feel this way,
and everything I thought I knew
held the promise of you and I someday

When We Were Young

Written By: Preston Saylor

Just take a breath,
and exhale, everything will
be just fine

I know that you're just scared
but so am I
and I promise
that I'll take you for a ride
for the ride of your life
don't you ever doubt it

we drove slowly through
the streets of your hometown
right past where we first met the
sun went down
on that night it was so cold
but we were alone
and thats all that really mattered

the days were ours they belonged to us,
we always said

When we were young,
we didn't give a damn about true love
just begging for the world to call our bluff
when we lived for the summer sun
when we were young

so just take it slow but you'll
still have to cross that line
to catch that fairy tail thats
in your mind
i can say that you'll be mine
but we'll never know
unless you take your chances

the days were ours they belonged to us,
we always said

when we were young,
we didn't give a damn about true love
just begging for the world to call our bluff
when we lived for the summer sun
when we were young

so don't act like your tounge tied
baby you know, trying hard
to find the words to say
always knew that it'd be this simple
you always knew that it'd be this simple

x2

don't act like your tounge tied
baby you know, trying hard
to find the words to say
always knew that it'd be this simple
you always knew it would

when we were young,
we didn't give a damn about true love
just begging for the world to call our bluff
when we lived for the summer sun

oh when we were young
we didn't give a damn about true love
just begging for the world to call our bluff
when we lived for the summer sun
when we were young
