I guess I'm hanging out alone
I'm selfish to complain
Cuz you've always got the best excuse

There's no use in forcing you to stay
You'd kick my weak butt anyway
I'll watch you on the evening news

It's just that i see you next to zero
It's so hard lovin' a superhero

You're too busy saving the world
And I think I need saving the most
And I know that you'd stay here if you could
But you're too busy saving the world

You're sliding on my favorite boots
Those tights are such a tease
But you never wear that stuff for me
Oh

Look up at the sky
It's not a bird nor a plane
The sweetest crime fighter that I'd ever see
I wish she'd call in sick
And just stay home
Just stay home

So go make the world just a little safer
I'll read all about it in tomorrow's paper

You're too busy saving the world
And I think I need saving the most
And I know that you'd stay here if you could
But you're too busy saving the world

I'm so over jumping off buildings
You catching my fall
So I'll brush up on my super villain
And I might see you more

I know you're under cover
But I want you under the covers

And does it feel like I'm asking alot?

But you're too busy
You're too busy
You're too busy
Oooooh

You're too busy saving the world
And I think I need saving the most
And I know that you'd stay here if you could
But you're too busy saving the world

But you're too busy saving the world

    General CommentJust a random guess, but I think this song is speaking a metaphor for missing his girlfriend/wife. She's too busy doing her every day things, or maybe she's either in the police force, or even a doctor, and she's too busy to spend time with him. The line "I'll brush up on my super villains and i might see you more" really speaks to me, even though it's a metaphor, he's basically saying, he'd do anything to spend more time with her, even so much as to be a bad guy, so that when she comes to stop him from whatever villains get up to, he gets to be with her. This song really reminds me of my girlfriend, not in a bad way, she just got me listening to it, so when i hear it i think of her.

    General Commenti think that this song is awesome! by far one of the better songs on their album!
    I think that when he's singing about the girl being too busy saving the world, it's just a metaphor about how he's feeling that she's neglecting him, and is a bit of an ironic statement. Also in the line, "You never wear that stuff for me", makes it seem like his girl is doing stuff for others, like workmates, friends etc, that she wouldn't do for him and so he's showing a slight jealousy...?
    Seems like he's complaining about her, but also letting us know how much he really cares for her... and he's also understanding of the situation..? As he does encourage her to "go save the world"
