My first tab!! I did this by ear: so hopefully it's pretty close!

F#9                                                            C#
Where have all the good men gone and where are all the gods?
F#9                                                     C#
Where’s the street-wise Hercules to fight the rising odds?
F#9                                    C#
Isn’t there a white knight upon a fiery steed?
F#9                                                  D#m
   Late at night I toss and turn and I dream of what I need.


         A#m   F#2                              C#                               G#
I need a hero, I’m holding out for a hero ‘til the end of the night,
                     A#m                                  F#
He’s gotta be strong and he’s gotta be fast,
         C#                                     G#
And he’s gotta be fresh from the fight.
         A#m   F#2                              C#                            G#
I need a hero, I’m holding out for a hero ‘til the morning light,
                      A#m                               F#
He’s gotta be sure, and it’s gotta be soon,
         C#                                 G#
And he’s gotta be larger than life...
            A#m     F#	C#	G#
Larger than life.

A#m     F#	C#	G#

Somewhere after midnight in my wildest fantasy,
Somewhere just beyond my reach there’s someone reaching back for me.
Racing on the thunder and rising with the heat
It’s gonna take a superman to sweep me off my feet, yeah!

CHORUS
 
D#m
Up where the mountains meet the heavens above,
F#
out where the lightning splits the sea,
D#m                                                               C#
I could swear there is someone somewhere watching me.
D#m
Through the wind and the chill and the rain,
F#
and the storm and the raging flood,
D#m                                          C#
I can feel his approach like the fire in my blood

	     A#m  F#2                C#			       G#
I'll meet a hero, and then we'll dance 'til the morning light 
		A#m       F#2
Dreaming he'll lead me
         C#		    G#
Held tight tonight's the night 

CHORUS

A#m     F#	C#	G#   (repeat to end)


F#9                                                            C#
Where have all the good men gone and where are all the gods?
F#9                                                     C#
Where’s the street-wise Hercules to fight the rising odds?
F#9                                    C#
Isn’t there a white knight upon a fiery steed?
F#9                                                  D#m
   Late at night I toss and turn and I dream of what I need.

I need a hero, I’m holding out for a hero ‘til the end of the night,
                     A#m                                  F#
He’s gotta be strong and he’s gotta be fast,
         C#                                     G#
And he’s gotta be fresh from the fight.
         A#m   F#2                              C#                            G#
I need a hero, I’m holding out for a hero ‘til the morning light,
                      A#m                               F#
He’s gotta be sure, and it’s gotta be soon,
         C#                                 G#
And he’s gotta be larger than life...

and the storm and the raging flood,
