Lyrics

Have you ever been alone, waiting for somebody to phone

And broken hearts don't need a hero


He got lost in the crowd, and never got found
He got battered, bruised and broken, to the ground
This is the cost of living and if you could spare a pound
Without hope we are beaten

And broken hearts don’t need a hero
And broken hearts don’t need a hero
And broken hearts don’t need a hero
Broken hearts

She got cross, she got loud, and then she unwound
Till the doorway of the shoe shop was a refuge
These are the losses we suffer when there’s no one around
Without hope we are beaten

And broken hearts don’t need a hero
And broken hearts don’t need a hero
And broken hearts don’t need a hero
Broken hearts

So your life runs aground and you nearly drown
When the sad and salty waters drag you down
Then you’re tossed like a rag doll,
But you don’t make a sound

You’re cold and you cannot see beyond the next wave 
Reach out your hand to me, I will save you

Broken hearts don’t need a hero
And broken hearts don’t need a hero
And broken hearts don’t need a hero
And broken hearts don’t need a hero
And broken hearts don’t need a hero
And broken hearts don’t need a hero
And broken hearts don’t need a hero

No broken hearts don’t need a hero
Just a friend
They just need a friend
