Holding Out for a Hero Lyrics

Where have all the good men
gone and where are all the gods?
Where’s the streetwise
Hercules to fight the risin’ odds?
Isn’t there the right 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 holdin’ out for a hero ’til
the end of the night
He’s gotta be strong and
he’s gotta be fast
And he’s got to be fresh
from the fight I need a hero
I’m holdin’ out for a hero ’til
the mornin’ light
He’s gotta be sure and
he’s gotta be soon
And he’s got to be larger than life
Larger than life

Somewhere after midnight
in my wildest fantasy
Somewhere just beyond my reach,
there’s someone reachin’ back for me
Racin’ on the thunder and
risin’ with the heat
It’s gonna take a Superman to
sweep me off my feet, yeah

I need a hero
I’m holdin’ out for a hero ’til
the end of the night
He’s gotta be strong and
he’s gotta be fast
And he’s got to be fresh
from the fight I need a hero
I’m holdin’ out for a hero ’til
the mornin’ light
He’s gotta be sure and
he’s gotta be soon
And he’s got to be larger than life
Larger than life

Up where the mountains meet
the heavens above
Out where the lightnin’ splits the sea
I could swear there was someone
somewhere watchin’ me
Through the wind and
the chill and the rain
And the storm and flood
I can feel his approach
like a fire in my blood

I need a hero
I’m holdin’ out for a hero ’til
the end of the night
He’s gotta be strong and
he’s gotta be fast
And he’s got to be fresh
from the fight (I need)
I need a hero (Hey)
I’m holdin’ out for a hero ’til
the mornin’ light
He’s gotta be sure and
he’s gotta be soon

And he’s got to be larger than life
I need a hero
I’m holdin’ out for a hero ’til
the end of the night (Oh)
He’s gotta be strong and
he’s gotta be fast
And he’s got to be fresh
from the fight I need a hero
I’m holdin’ out for a hero ’til
the mornin’ light (Yeah, yeah)
He’s gotta be sure and
he’s gotta be soon
And he’s got to be larger than life
Larger than life
