It's never been the same since you returned from dreamin'
With your nursery rhyme excuses and your picture postcards gleamin'
Tellin' everyone who looks your way 'bout people and their sinnin'
While your left field verse is fallin' in proportion to your winnin'

And I can't be your hero today
I'm through with the simple games you play
It just might take some time to even up the score
But I can't be your soldier home from war

And there you sit shining that there's still hope for us
While nature holds the handcuffs on a Capricorn and Taurus
There's nothing you can do or say to get me to your camp
Go fill up all your savings books and buy yourself a lamp

And I can't be your hero today
Your wholesale price is much too high to pay
Bargain basement atmosphere is no way to sell love
And I can't be your superman above

No I can't be your hero today
That is all I really want to say
Go find a leading man who wants to play
But I can't be your hero today
