Hometown Hero Lyrics by Michael Bolton

Hometown Hero Lyrics

    Well alright, you put your heart and your soul on the line
    You pay the price, you can leave all your dues behind, yeah
    You go spinning your wheels, till just one song makes it right
    Live your life on the road, now they call you a star overnight
    Overnight, overnight, oh no no
    Gave it all, for it seemed like ages
    Lived the life of a rolling stone
    Seen the world from a thousand stages
    There ain't no feelin', you've ever known
    Like when a hometown boy comes home
    This guy's a joker, and this is not the key to your found
    And there's always somebody, who thinks he makes a living
    From putting you down
    You're aware of the odds, just forgetting the chance you must take
    When you're bound to a vision, there is no decision to make
    No no no
    When he comes home
    The road is long and you're on your own
    But through it all you know your roots run so deep
    Out on the rock and roll highway
    You make a promise to bring it back home
    And that's one promise, you know ya gotta keep
    But it's never gonna feel like
    When a hometown boy comes home
    He's a hometown hero
