he says she’s his superhero, he says she’s too good for him,
if she’s a 10, then he’s a zero, that’s how it’s always been..

I have known both sides of longing, I’ve been the carrot and the stick,
I’ve loved well, but I’ve done wrong and acted like a prick,
+++ I’m comin’ back to earth where the real people live,
+++ I’m gonna base my worth on the things that I give,
+++ I’ll never be your superhero, that’s no way to live..
+++++ with all the phone booths disappearing,
+++++ now Captain Marvel®’s hard of hearing,
+++++ we’re turning into something smaller,
+++++ this could be your finest hour..

when you fall, it’s only human to turn your eyes up to the sky
for someone who’ll come and save you, I’m sorry I can’t..
+++ fly, I’m comin’ back to earth where the real people live,
+++ I’m gonna base my worth on the things that I give,
+++ I’ll never be your superhero, that’s no way to live
+++ I’m comin’ back to earth, I’m comin’ back to earth,
+++ I’ll never be your superhero, that’s no way to live…
