They Are Heroes (RFS Tribute by Soluna)

I was inspired to write a song dedicated to two RFS volunteers (Horsley Park) who lost their lives. I shared the video & was contacted by their family requesting a copy of the song to be one day shown to their 18mth old daughter. I hope this story touches your heart.

They fight fires at the front
Fight fires in the haze
Saving people’s homes and animals from the blaze
Doing what they can
Sacrificing their own lives

They are brave
They are strong
They are heroes
They are heroes
They are heroes to me

They are heroes
They are heroes
They are heroes to me

Building from the ashes
One brick at a time
Nothing but their memories
We’re standing by your sid
Love of humankind
Flora and fauna will return

They are brave
They are strong
They are heroes
They are heroes
They are heroes to me

They are heroes
They are heroes
They are heroes to me

They are heroes
They are heroes
They are heroes to me

They are heroes
They are heroes
They are heroes to me
