Hope everyone's had a great Christmas. Hoping to start the new year off by getting some music done for these lyrics, always thought of them as a folk song. With acoustic and wind instruments as in guitar, violin, mandolin, accordion, pan flute or penny whistle and bodhran, tabla (or similar) drums.
Anyone interested, feel free to jump in.

A HERO HAS A THOUSAND FACES

 

YOU THINK THEIR ONLY IN FILM OR BOOKS
FACT IS THEIR ALL AROUND IF YOU LOOK
WALK ALONG THE STREETS OF EVERY TOWN
YOU’LL FIND SOMEONE WHO LAYS THEIR HEART DOWN
READY AND WILLING TO LEND THEIR HAND
WITHOUT ANY QUESTION OR DEMAND
THEY CAN COME FROM ANY WALK OF LIFE
COULD BE YOUR NEIGHBOUR OR HIS WIFE

CAUSE

(CHORUS)

A HERO HAS A THOUSAND FACES
ONE RESIDES WITHIN US ALL
A HERO HAS A THOUSAND FACES
READY TO ANSWER THE CALL
A HERO HAS A THOUSAND FACES
TOGETHER WE STAND TALL

IN A WORLD THAT’S FULL OF SO MUCH GREED
THERE’S SOME THAT SOW A DIFFERENT SEED
LET’S HOPE THEIR KIND WILL ALWAYS REMAIN
DOING THINGS FOR LOVE AND NOT FOR GAIN
IF WE ALL GIVE A LITTLE MORE THOUGHT
THEN THIS WORLD OF OURS WOULD BE LESS FRAUGHT
GAVE UP OUR TIME WITHOUT REQUEST
THEN I SAY WE’D ALL FEEL TRULY BLEST

CAUSE

(CHORUS)

(SOLO)

SO IF WE COULD DO JUST ONE SMALL THING
THERE IS SO MUCH JOY THAT WE CAN BRING
THERE’S SO MANY WAYS WE CAN ASSIST
AND ONE BY ONE WE CAN ALL ENLIST
THEN OUR WORLD WOULD BE A BETTER PLACE
TRUE HAPPINESS WE CAN ALL EMBRACE
THERE IS ONLY ONE PLACE TO BEGIN
SO LET’S ALL START BY LOOKING WITHIN

(CHORUS TILL FADE)

Liking the sentiment here.

There’s one quote from scripture everyone knows and agrees with, "Do unto others as you would have them do unto you." But Christ also said, "You are your brother’s keeper," and, "Let each of you esteem the other as greater than yourself." To serve God we must serve each other... 

Just some thoughts 😎 

Do you have an example of the kind of music and rhythm you’re looking for here?

As I said always thought of it as folk song, though never had any particular singer or band in mind. So can't really give examples.

Intro: 4 bars (key of C)

You think they're only in film or books
But they're all around if you just look
Walk along the streets of every town
You'll find someone who lays their heart down
Ready and welling to lend their hand
Without any question or demand
They can come from any walk of life
And could be your neighbour or his wife

A hero has a thousand faces
One resides within us all
A hero has a thousand faces
Ready to answer the call
A hero has a thousand faces
Together we stand all

In a world that's full of so much greed
There is some that sow a different seed
Let's hope their kind will always remain
Doing things for love and not for gain
If we gave others a few more thought
Then this world of ours would be less fraught
If we gave our time without request
Then I say we'd all feel truly blest

A hero has a thousand faces
One resides within us all
A hero has a thousand faces
Ready to answer the call
A hero has a thousand faces
Together we stand all

Interlude: 8 bars

So if we could do just one small thing
There is so much joy that we can bring
There's so many ways we can assist
And one by one we can all enlist
Then our world would be a better place
True happiness we can all embrace
There is only one place to begin
So let's all start by looking within

A hero has a thousand faces
One resides within us all
A hero has a thousand faces
Ready to answer the call
A hero has a thousand faces
Together we stand all

Cause a Hero has a thousand faces

Have fun!

Hi Guy
Apologies only just seen this. Just wanted to say a huge thanks for working on it. However I'm unfortunately now unable to accept this, simply because the day before your post, the lyrics have been chosen by a producer and record company owner. They have been submitted to one of his, new female signings and will have music written by her and the producer. Hopefully for release later in the year.

Apologies and thanks again.
All the best, Roger

@penkslyrics

Big congrats on that Roger! Are you able to share who the singer is, or is that under wraps for now?

I may or may not be an enigma
