Have I lost my mind?I don't care, you're here tonight

“Hero” positions Iglesias serenading an imaginary lover and questioning the reciprocity of her feelings for him. Throughout the song, the singer and his lover are positioned as each others" emotional savior; in this way, the “hero” of the song is both the singer and the person sung to.

The song itself is slow, and driven primarily by an acoustic guitar. Although the lyric content is primarily concerned with exchanging emotional intimacy, Iglesias’s delivery is distinctly sensual.

“Hero” was the first song to re-enter the Billboard top ten the year after its initial release. It is the first single from his second English-language album, Escape and has been used in the sound tracks of numerous television shows and movies. It was also played frequently by New York DJs after the September 11th attacks.
