Words and Music: Eddie Star, Kelly Charles, David Taub

When I was just a kid
I’d sit in front of the t.v.
Watching all those super-heros
And dreaming it was me.
Now I am almost grown-up
So many things I see
I’ve looked into this whole wide world
And seen life’s harsh reality

I feel your pain.
I feel your heartache.
I feel your sorrow.
I feel your outrage.

I am not your savior
I am not your superman
I’m not someone who could save your life

I wish I could be superman
The strong man of steel
Then I could save all of mankind
And all of societies wounds heal
Faster than a speeding bullet
I could fly higher than a plane
I could protect the innocent and the weak
From all the acts that are so insane

I wish I could be batman
The hooded avenger of the night
I’d cruise around in my Bat-mobile
And turn all the wrongs into rights
But I am only a young man
Made of flesh and blood
I can’t even save myself
From this wave of evil crude.
