VERSE
Am                                   G
Where have all the good men gone and where are all the gods?
F                                   E
Where’s the street-wise Hercules to fight the rising odds?
Am                          Em
Isn’t there a white knight upon a fiery steed?
Dm                                     Esus4            E
   Late at night I toss and turn and I dream of what I need.
 
 
CHORUS
         Am                          Em
I need a hero, I’m holding out for a hero ‘til the end of the night,
     F
He’s gotta be strong and he’s gotta be fast,
         C                        G
And he’s gotta be fresh from the fight.
         Am                          Em
I need a hero, I’m holding out for a hero ‘til the morning light,
     F
He’s gotta be sure, and it’s gotta be soon,
         C                    G
And he’s gotta be larger than life...
 
            Am
Larger than life.

VERSE
Am                                   G
Somewhere after midnight in my wildest fantasy,
F                                   E
Somewhere just beyond my reach there’s someone reaching back for me.
Am                          Em
Racing on the thunder and rising with the heat
Dm                              Esus4           E
It’s gonna take a superman to sweep me off my feet, yeah!
 
 
CHORUS
         Am                          Em
I need a hero, I’m holding out for a hero ‘til the end of the night,
     F
He’s gotta be strong and he’s gotta be fast,
         C                        G
And he’s gotta be fresh from the fight.
         Am                          Em
I need a hero, I’m holding out for a hero ‘til the morning light,
     F                       Dm7
He’s gotta be sure, and it’s gotta be soon,
         C                    G
And he’s gotta be larger than life...
 
         Am
I need a hero,
                      Em
I’m holding out for a hero ‘til the end of the night

BRIDGE
Am
Up where the mountains meet the heavens above,
F
out where the lightning splits the sea,
Dm                     E                 Am
I could swear there is someone somewhere watching me.
 
Am
Through the wind and the chill and the rain,
F
and the storm and the flood,
Dm                     E                 Am
I can feel his approach like the fire in my blood
 
Cdim
like the fire in my blood, like the fire in my blood,
                                               Esus4    E
like the fire in my blood, like the fire in my blood! Aaah!
 
 
CHORUS x2
         Am                          Em
I need a hero, I’m holding out for a hero ‘til the end of the night,
     F
He’s gotta be strong and he’s gotta be fast,
         C                        G
And he’s gotta be fresh from the fight.
         Am                          Em
I need a hero, I’m holding out for a hero ‘til the morning light,
     F                       Dm7
He’s gotta be sure, and it’s gotta be soon,
         C                    G
And he’s gotta be larger than life...
