Holding Out for a Hero

Where have all the good men gone
And where are all the Gods?
Where’s the street-wise Hercules
To fight the rising odds?
Isn’t there a white knight upon a fiery steed?
Late at night I toss and turn and dream of what I need

I need a hero
I’m holding out for a hero ’til the end of the night
He’s gotta be strong
And he’s gotta fast
And he’s gotta be fresh from the fight
I need a hero
I’m holding out for a hero ’til the morning light
He’s gotta be sure
And it’s gotta soon
And he’s gotta be larger than life
Larger than life

Somewhere after midnight
In my wildest fantasy
Somewhere just beyond my reach
There’s someone reaching back for me
Racing on the thunder and rising with the heat
It’s gonna take a superman to sweep me off my feet

I need a hero
I’m holding out for a hero ’til the end of the night
He’s gotta be strong
And he’s gotta fast
And he’s gotta be fresh from the fight
I need a hero
I’m holding out for a hero ’til the morning light
He’s gotta be sure
And it’s gotta soon
And he’s gotta be larger than life
Larger than life …

I need a hero
I’m holding out for a hero ’til the end of the night …

Up where the mountains meet the heavens above
Out where the lightning splits the sea
I would swear there’s someone somewhere watching me

Through the wind and the chill and the rain
And the storm and the flood
I can feel his approach
Like the fire in the blood

(like the fire in the blood)
(like the fire in the blood)
(like the fire in the blood)
(like the fire in the, aaah)

Yeah, I need a hero
I’m holding out for a hero ’til the end of the night
He’s gotta be strong
And he’s gotta fast
And he’s gotta be fresh from the fight
I need a hero
I’m holding out for a hero ’til the morning light
He’s gotta be sure
And it’s gotta soon
And he’s gotta be larger than life
Larger than life

I need a hero–hero–hero–hero…
(hero – hero ’til the end of the, hero ’til the end of the…)
(gotta be strong, gotta be fast, gotta be fresh from the fight)

I need a hero–hero–hero–hero…
(hero – hero ’til the morning light, hero ’til the morning…)
(gotta be sure, gotta be soon, gotta be larger than life)/p>

I need a hero
I’m holding out for a hero ’til the end of the night …
(oooh oooh oooh) …
(oooh oooh oooh) …
[vocal wail and fade]
