(V1)     Yeah, you would be king

if you were my hero

and you saved me from the pain,

all the guilt, despair and pain

in my soul.


(V2)     Oh, come as you are,

oh, come if you dare.

Come right now and set me free,

come by land, the air, or sea,

I don’t care!



(BR1)  I don’t love him anymore,

but I just can’t walk out that door.

So, please, please, please,

will you, won’t you be?


(CH)    Be my hero,

be my hero,

be my hero!


(V3)     Oh, come take my hand

and draw me near.

Come and take me in your arms

and protect me from the harm

that I fear!


(V4)     I’ll gather my strength,

gather my courage

when you break through all the chains

and you wash away the stains

from my heart!


(BR2)  All these years I’ve known what’s right,

but I’m too scared to leave, tonight!

So, please, please, please,

come and rescue me!


(CH)    (Repeat Double Chorus)


(Tag)    Hero, hero!
