Hero  Steve Taylor

[D]When the house fell asleep there was[F#m(C#)] always a light
And it[D7(C)] fell from the page to the[G(B)] eyes of an America[D]n boy.[G]
[D]In a storybook land I could dream wh[F#m(C#)]at I read
When it[D7(C)] went to my head I'd [G(B)]see: I wanna be a h[D]ero.[A]
I wanna be a[D] hero.[A]
But the [D]practical side said the[F#m(C#)] question was still
"When you[D7(C)] grow up what will you[G(B)] be?"
I wanna be a[D] hero.[A2] I wanna be a [D2]hero.
It's a[A(G)] nice boy notion that the [F#m]real world's gonna de[D]stroy.
[G]You[A(G)] know
It's [Bm]a Marvel comic book [E(G#)]Saturday matinee [A]fairy tale boy.
[Am7(G#)] [A7(G)]  
Growing [D]older you'll find that [F#m(C#)]illusions are bought
And the i[D7(C)]dol you thought you'd [G(B)]be was just another zero.
I wanna be a[D] hero.[A2] [D2]
Heros [Bb]died when the [C]squealers bought 'em off.
[Bb(D)]Died when the d[C(E)]ealers got 'em off.
[F]Welcome[C(G)] to the[F(A)] "In it for the money as an [Bb]idol"[F(A)] show. Ha!
[Bb]When they [C]ain't as big as life
[Bb(D)]When the [C(E)]ditch their second wife
[F]Where's the[Gm7] boy t[F(A)]o go? [Am7] Gotta be a[C] h[G]ero!
When the[D2] house fell asleep from a[D2(C#)] book I was led
To a l[D2(C)]ight that I never knew.[G(B)]
I wanna be you[D2]r hero.[A] I wanna be your[D2] hero.[A2]
And He s[D2]poke to my heart from the[D2(C#)] moment I prayed
"Here's [D2(C)]a pattern I made for you"[G(B)]
I wanna be you[D2]r hero.[A] I wanna be your[D2] hero.[A]
I wanna be you[D]r hero.[A] [D]
