Australian Unwrapped’s Chosen Song from Alesso:


Length: 3:30

Release: 2014

Opening Lyrics:

We could hide away in daylight
We go undercover, wait out the sun
Got a secret side in plain sight
Where the streets are empty, that’s where we run
Every day people do everyday things, but I
Can’t be one of them
I know you hear me now, we are a different kind
We can do anything
We could be heroes
We could be heroes, me and you
We could be heroes
We could be heroes, me and you
We could be
Anybody’s got the power
They don’t see it, ’cause they don’t understand
Spin around and ’round for hours
You and me, we got the world in our hands
