When The Hero Walks Alone

This song is by Elkie Brooks and appears on the album Bookbinder's Kid (1988).

I've been staring at the lateshow
Instead of holding you
Watching lovers learn to let go
The way that heroes do
Had my heart on Spencer Tracy
But I got Bogart in the cold
It can drive a woman crazy
When the hero walks alone

Should've known enough to love you better
Guess I've got to face it on my own
Now I've got to live it to the letter
Even when the hero walks alone

I was hoping fo a sunset
And we'd go riding off
Didn't count on any upset
Didn't go the way I thought
And I'd love to change the station
But that's all that's on tonight
Another heartbreak situation
With tears in black and white

Should've known enough to love you better
Guess I've got to face it on my own
Now I've got to live it to the letter
Even when the hero walks alone

Should've known enough to love you better
Guess I've got to face it on my own
Now I've got to live it to the letter
Even when the hero walks alone

Should've known enough to love you better...
