Part 2: Analysis
I think the intention of these lyrics are to mean that a hero can get you through a hard time and give you the strength or ability to move on. Mariah Carey described the hero as in the hero lies in you meaning that you can find the strength to carry on and eventually when you reflect on yourself, you are a hero too. I think the message of these lyrics are, you are able to pick yourself up and carry on with any situation you are in, you just have to give it time.
