Her and her friends piled into a Camry Headed downtown, got in for free She's all dolled up, looking VIP Walked in, found a booth, took a seat Wiped the tear from the corner of her eye Faked a smile to the Corona guy Usually she wouldn't give him the time of day But hey, in here tonight
She don't wanna feel nothing real She just want somebody to give her attention For a minute, call her beautiful She ain't trying to wind up in love She's just trying to burn some time up On a Friday night in the neon light Yeah, he hurt her soul
She just needs a hero to save her From being all alone From paying for a drink she don't want Nothing more than a dance or two She's feeling blue But she just needs a hero, mmm And she just needs a hero
He's all geared up for his football game He's wearing his jersey with the same last name A still reminder of the guy that ain't around these days And his mama's up in them aluminum stands Saying 'run, baby run', she's his number one fan Doing the best she can But wondering why his daddy can't be a better man
He just wants to feel what kids feel Walking off the football field After winning, for a minute In his daddy's pads The kid should never have to wonder If his old man even loves him On a Friday night under Friday lights Shouldn't be so sad
That should be his hero That left him and his mama all alone Barely even calls him on the phone Every year in March, sends a birthday card But he just needs a hero, mmm Yeah, he just needs a hero
There's an old white haired preacher man With a leather bind good book on the stand Says "if you're ready for a change, here's your chance With every head bow, slip up your hand"
If you wanna feel something real That this mean old world can't kill Not even Satan There's a saviour, he'll wash away your sins All you gotta do is reap in Open up your heart, accept him and He'll save your soul
Jesus is a hero, ooo And everybody needs a hero Jesus is a hero, ooh And everybody needs a hero
