Node.js Question

Heroku Node.js Error R10 (Boot timeout) -> Web process failed to bind to $PORT within 60 seconds of launch

I found a dozen solutions for Express powered apps with setting port to listen on.
But I have an app that doesn't use Express and doesn't in fact listens anything.
And after 60 seconds of it successfully running I get a

Error R10 (Boot timeout) -> Web process failed to bind to $PORT within 60 seconds of launch
message.
How I can get around it? Thanks.

Answer

After lots of googling I decided to npm install express and add

var express = require('express');
var app     = express();

app.set('port', (process.env.PORT || 5000));

//For avoidong Heroku $PORT error
app.get('/', function(request, response) {
    var result = 'App is running'
    response.send(result);
}).listen(app.get('port'), function() {
    console.log('App is running, server is listening on port ', app.get('port'));
});

This fixed the error, even though I don't like adding express just to avoid one error. If someone finds a better solution, please let me know.
