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 turn and I dream of what I need.
* I need a hero, I’m holding out for a hero ‘til 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 ‘til 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.
Do do do do Do do do do
Do do do do Aaah aaah
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, yeah!
( * )
Up where the mountains meet the heavens above,
out where the lightning splits 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 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! Aaah!
