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 till 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 till 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

Up where the mountains meet the heavens above
Out where the lightning splits the sea
I could 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 my blood
(Like the fire in my blood)
(Like the fire in my blood)
(Like the fire in my blood)
(Like the fire in my blood)

(Hero)

I need a hero
I'm holding out for a hero till the morning light
And he's gotta be sure
And it's gotta be soon
And he's gotta be larger than life

(Hero)
Oh he's gotta be strong
And he's gotta be fast
And he's gotta be fresh from the fight
I need a hero
