The Lyrics

This is a revised version of the original Holding Out For A Heroine which I made back in ‘18. Enjoy
Where have all the good men and women gone?
And where are all the legends?
Where’s the champions of defenders
Who manages to defy the rising odds?

Night after night, I toss and I turn
Dreaming of what I need.
I need a heroine
I’m waiting for a heroine to rise in the moonlight.
Holding out till the end of the night.

She’s gotta be fast
She’s gotta be fierce
She’s gotta be strong
She’s gotta be emerging from the fight.

It’s gonna take a Wonder Woman to bring hope for me.
I need a heroine
I’m waiting for a heroine to rise in the moonlight.
Holding out till the end of the night.

She’s gotta be sure
And it’s gotta be soon
She’s gotta be larger than life!
Larger than life!

(Instrumental)

Sometimes in my wildest dreams
I can feel someone approaching me
Getting in close proximity, I can barely stand
Cause her appearance causes a chill in my spine.

Up where the Fortress meets from the Heavens above
Out near on the ocean that surrounds that mysical island
I swear that I got the feeling someone was watching me
Reaching out for me.

Through the rain and through the chill
On the choppy waves of the ocean
Oh, her approach is like a fire in my blood.


Taking a risk, throwing that Lasso of Truth
Something’s gotta give and take
Cause by daylight
Everything could be gone without a sight!

I need a heroine
I’m waiting for a heroine to rise in the moonlight.
Holding out till the end of the night.

She’s gotta be fast
She’s gotta be fierce
She’s gotta be strong
She’s gotta have integrity.
Holding out till the end of night
I know she’ll rise by the start of daylight.

Yeah, I need a heroine
Gonna take a Wonder Woman to bring hope for me.
Yeah, holding out for a heroine...
