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 at 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 strikes the sea I could swear there is 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 a fire in my blood
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
