It’s a great song, but I’d also love to know how they did those slow motion segments in what looks like a one-take video.

Lyrics:
I miss when I had superpowers
My imagination was my friend and it ran wild and free
I could waste a couple hours
Without a worry in the world staring at stars out on my trampoline, yeah

I miss when Andy McAuthur was the fastest kid there was and kid there was ever gonna be
Ken Griffey Jr. was a giant before parents got divorced and I learned that there was gravity

I miss my old heroes
I had to give them all away
I miss my old heroes yeah yeah
God I wish they could’ve stayed
Cause it turns out that the hardest part of growing up’s not getting old
It’s learning how the real world goes
I miss my old
I miss my old

I miss my Bible study leader
Had all the answers for living in the big bad world
Don’t know if he still talks to Jesus
But his wife’s remarried now and I think he sells garage doors

I miss when I thought chasing dreams was
Holy magic behind curtains in a sacred place
Before it was managers and lawyers
Who colored up and cashed them out
For vacation homes in coastal states

I miss my old heroes
I had to give them all away
I miss my old heroes yeah yeah
God I wish they could’ve stayed
Cause it turns out that the hardest part of growing up’s not getting old
It’s learning how the real world goes
I miss my old
I miss my old
I miss my old heroes

I miss my old heroes

I miss back when the world was small and we had all the answers
I miss how it was when we were young
I miss back before I understood all the ways that life would break your heart
Before I knew that’s what they called growing up

I miss my old heroes
I had to give them all away
I miss my old heroes yeah yeah
God I wish they could’ve stayed
Cause it turns out that the hardest part of growing up’s not just getting old
It’s learning how the real world goes
I miss my old
I miss my old
I miss my old heroes
I miss my old heroes
