Holding Out For A Hero (Glee Cast Version)

Lyricist: Jim Steinman, Dean Pitchford    Composer: Jim Steinman, Dean Pitchford
New Directions:
Duh, duh, duh
Duh, duh, duh
Duh, duh, duh
Ah, ah

Kitty:
Where have all the good men gone
And where are all the gods?
Where's the street-wise Hercules
To fight the rising odds?

Marley:
Isn't there a white knight upon a fiery steed?
Late at night I toss and turn

Kitty and Marley:
and 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 (New Directions: hero)
I'm holding out for a hero 'til the morning light (New Directions: 'til the morning light)
He's gotta be sure and he's gotta be soon
And he's gotta be larger than life, larger than life

New Directions:
Duh, duh, duh
Duh, duh, duh (Marley and Kitty: Oh whoa!)
Duh, duh, duh (Marley: Oh!) (Kitty: Yeah!)

Marley and Kitty:
Ah, ah!

Marley:
Somewhere after midnight
In my wildest fantasies
Somewhere just beyond my reach
There's someone reaching back for me

Kitty:
Racing on the thunder and rising with the heat

Marley and Kitty:
It's gonna take a superman to sweep me off my feet (Marley: Ooh!)
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 he's gotta be soon
And he's gotta be larger than life
I need a hero
I'm holding out for a hero 'til the end of the night

Kitty:
Up where the mountains meet the heavens above
Out where the lightning splits the sea
I could swear that there's someone somewhere watching me

Marley:
Through the wind and the chill and the rain
And the storm and the flood
I can feel his approach is like a fire in my blood

New Directions:
Like a fire in my blood, like a fire in my blood
Like a fire in my blood, like a fire in my...
Blood, blood!

Marley and Kitty:
Oh!
I need a hero (New Directions Boys: 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 (New Directions: hero)
I'm holding out for a hero 'til the morning light
He's gotta be sure, he’s gotta be soon
And he's gotta be larger than life
I need a hero (New Directions: 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
