Mary J Blige – Hero lyrics

This is for all the young ladies out there
Who may need a hero
Sometimes we have to save ourselves

Mama didn't raise no fool, nooo
Mama didn't raise no dummy, uhh
Mama didn't raise no imbecile
But that's what I am if I let you hurt me yeah.
And as much as I wanna stay right here
To hear you say I'm sorry
I'll be damn if I stay right here
'Cause I know you do it again and again.

Chorus:
So I gotta be my hero tonight
I gotta come and save me tonight
I gotta be my hero tonight, my hero
And drop the sword and fight for my life.

Since daddy didn't raise a good girl
I was never choosy
See I learnt that I love me...
No man could ever hurt me
'Cause as much as I wanna stay right here, right here
To hear you say I'm sorry uhh
I'll be damn if I stay right here

'Cause I know you do it again and again.

Chorus:
So I gotta be my hero tonight, my hero my hero
I gotta come and save me tonight, save my own life
I gotta be my hero tonight,
And drop the sword and fight for my life ohh.

You may be good, but you're not good to me
You may be kind, but you're not kind to me
You may know to love but you don't know how to love me
So I gonna set me free yeah.

[Chorus:]

Just don't think no one understands, you know I do
I had to pull up the sword and fight for my own life many ah times
So I get it ladies, I did it girls, save yourself
'Cause nobody else is gotta do it for you
