Holding Out for a Hero (The Matt Flynn Tribute)

Where has our quarterback gone
With the season on the line?
Who's the unknown champion
To keep playoff hopes alive?

Will you be our white knight upon a fiery steed?
Late at night we toss and we turn and we dream of what we need

WE NEED A HERO! (Matt Flynn!)
We’re holding on for a hero to fight Sunday night
He’s gotta be strong
And he’s gotta be fast
And he’s gotta be fresh for the fight
WE NEED A HERO! (Matt Flynn!)
We’re holding on for a hero to fight Sunday night
He’s gotta be sure
And it’s gotta be soon
And he’s gotta be larger than life

Sometime after 7 pm
Sunday on NBC
I’ll be reaching toward my big screen
To give you the courage that you need

Racing on the thunder and rising with the heat
It’s gonna take a superman to beat BELICHEAT

WE NEED A HERO! (Matt Flynn!)!
We’re holding on for a hero to fight Sunday night
He’s gotta be strong
And he’s gotta be fast
And he’s gotta be fresh for the fight
WE NEED A HERO! (Matt Flynn!)
We’re holding on for a hero to fight Sunday night
He’s gotta be sure
And it’s gotta be soon
And he’s gotta be larger than life

WE NEED A HERO! (Matt Flynn!)
We’re holding on for a hero to fight Sunday night

Up on the coast somewhere in the East
Where the ocean is somewhat blue
Lombardi will be up there above
Watching over you
Through the wind and the chill and the snow
And the New England crud
Let them feel your approach
With a fire in your blood!

WE NEED A HERO! (Matt Flynn!)
We’re holding on for a hero to fight Sunday night
He’s gotta be strong
And he’s gotta be fast
And he’s gotta be fresh for the fight
WE NEED A HERO! (Matt Flynn!)
We’re holding on for a hero to fight Sunday night
He’s gotta be sure
And it’s gotta be soon
And he’s gotta be larger than life

    Robert Greenfield, sir, wherever you are; know that you pen has lightened my heart and built a fire of courage in my eyes. GO PACK! GO!!!
