​I Don't Need A Hero

This song is by Concrete Blonde and appears on the album Bloodletting (1990).

You always said I was a liar
But we burn like a house on fire
No matter what, you know that to be true
And everything you gave to me
Changed everything I used to be
Much more than anyone I ever knew

And I don't need a hero
I don't need a soldier
I did when I was younger
But now that I am older
I don't need a father
I don't wanna be your mother
It's just that any one of us is half
Without another one is you
Is you

The colours of that piece of time
Are still so fresh inside my mind
And it makes the movie
Of my life seem pale
And all the games I have to play
I got to give a lot of me away
But the part with us
Will never be for sale

And I don't need a hero
I don't need a soldier
I did when I was younger
But now that I am older
I don't need a father
I don't wanna be your mother
It's just that any one of us is half
Without another one is you

(And I haven't seen the rain in this city in so long)

The words of love have been confused
The ways of love have been abused
Is this a lottery you win or lose?
I don't know
It's an endless circle over time
The place inside where I hold and find
Your sweet and happy music in my soul

And I don't need a hero
I don't need a soldier
I did when I was younger
But now that I'm so much older
I don't need a father
I don't wanna be your mother
It's just that any one of us is half
Without another one is you
Is you
