Bonnie Tyler I Need a Hero Lyrics

Last updated: 05/16/2010 11:00:00 AM

Duu-duu-duu-duu...
Duu-duu-duu-duu...
Duu-duu-duu-duu...
Aaa-aaaa

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 on 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 (hero)
I’m holding on for a hero ‘till the morning light (‘till the morning light)
He’s gotta be sure
And it’s gotta be soon
And he’s gotta be larger than life (gotta be larger than life)

Duu-duu-duu-duu...
Duu-duu-duu-duu...
Duu-duu-duu-duu...
Aaa-aaaa

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

I need a hero
I’m holding on 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 on 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

I need a hero
I’m holding on for a hero ‘til the end of the night

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 a fire in my blood
(Like a fire in my blood)
(Like a fire in my blood)
(Like a fire in my blood)

I need a hero
I’m holding on 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 (hero)
I’m holding on for a hero ‘til the morning light (‘till the morning light)
He’s gotta be sure
And it’s gotta be soon
And he’s gotta be larger than life (gotta be larger than life)

I need a hero
I’m holding on 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 (hero)
I’m holding on for a hero ‘til the morning light (‘till the morning light)
He’s gotta be sure
And it’s gotta be soon
And he’s gotta be larger than life (gotta be larger than life)

I need a hero
I’m holding on for a hero ‘til the end of the night

Uuuu-uuu-uuu-uuuuu... (fading background)

This is what i've been looking for. | Reviewer: Shaun Diaz | 7/19/09

We used this song as an "entrance theme" for my friend Ty as he entered the arena in a bratwurst-eating contest that took place at Joint Base Balad, Iraq. With a fire in his eyes and an American flag cape flying in the wind behind his not-so-muscular shoulders, this is the White Knight every woman is looking for. Thank You Bonnie Tyler!!!

Awesome anthem for the lonely | Reviewer: Cheryl Lee | 5/26/08

I've always loved this song... Tyler is dynamic with this song. To me, it is a heart's cry for a real man of substance that will be a true hero, a man that will be the perfect partner. The kind of man we all pine for but usually never meet, but hey we can dream can't we?



Anthem for the lonely | Reviewer: Cheryl Lee | 5/26/08

This is a dynamic song, Tyler really pours her voice into it. To me, it is an anthem for the lonely looking for a true hero that will sweep them off thier feet. The kind of man we've dreamed of but doubt we will ever tyruly meet. But hey, we can dream can't we?
