holding out for a hero lyrics – various artists

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 i turn and i 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 be 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 be 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 be 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 be 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 that 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 blood

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 be 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 be soon
and he’s gotta be larger than life

i need a 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 ’til the morning, hero ’til the morning
gotta be sure, gotta be soon
gotta be larger than life

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