A Chance To Be A Hero

This song is by Engelbert Humperdinck and appears on the album Love's Only Love (1980).

When I was young at heart, I never had much money
But I never let faith depart, I kept it right beside me
When I was only seventeen, I knew just what I wanted to be
On the stage, on the front page with the spotlight shining
The spotlight shining on me

Take a chance to be a hero, a chance to play in this game
A chance to be somebody who you're gonna recognize my name
A chance to be a hero, a shot at the big time
A chance to be somebody new, a chance to be a hero

Funny, how time can fly right through you fingers
When the parade passes by, you know it's too late then
When your lifelong fantasy floats underneath the door
Down the stairs, out on the street, it won't be coming back
It won't be coming back anymore

Take a chance to be a hero, a chance to play in this game
A chance to be somebody who you're gonna recognize my name
A chance to be a hero, a shot at the big time
A chance to be somebody new, a chance to be a hero

When your lifelong fantasy floats underneath the door
Down the stairs, out on the street, it won't be coming back
It won't be coming back anymore

Take a chance to be a hero, a chance to play in this game
A chance to be somebody who you're gonna recognize my name
A chance to be a hero, a shot at the big time
A chance to be somebody new, I only wanna be
Only wanna be, I wanna be a hero
