"Superman" as written by Pete Woodroffe, Charlie Grant and Joe Brooks....
There are no words, to paint a picture of you girl
Your eyes, those curves, it's like you're from some other world
You walk my way, oh God is so frustrating.

So why do I disappear when you come near,
It makes me feel so small,
Why do I blow my lines, most every time,
Like I got no chance at all,

If I could be your superman,
I'd fly you to the stars and back again.
'Cause every time you touched my hand,
You feel my powers running through your veins.
But I can only write this song,
And tell you that I'm not that strong.
'Cause I'm no superman, I hope you like me as I am, oh yeah,

It ain't no lie, I have to tell you how I feel,
Each time, I try it gets a little more unreal,
You walk my way,oh God is so frustrating.

So why do I disappear when you come near,
It makes me feel so small,
If I could read your mind,
Girl would I find, any trace of me at all.

If I could be your superman,
I'd fly you to the stars and back again.
'Cause every time you touched my hand,
You feel my powers running through your veins.
But I can only write this song,
And tell you that I'm not that strong.
Cause I'm no superman, I hope you like me as I am

If I could be your superman,
I'd fly you to the stars and back again.
'Cause every time you touched my hand,
You feel my powers running through your veins.
But I can only write this song,
And tell you that I'm not that strong.
'Cause I'm no superman,
I hope you like me as I am.

    General CommentBEST.SONG.EVER.
    Its about this guy who cares about this girl so much, but doesn't think he's good enough for her.
    Honestly, if a guy wrote me a song, I would die and go to heaven.

    But thats just me :]

    General Commentand its me too!!

    about a guy infatuated by a girl who barely notices him and yet he still likes her even though they dont talk... we've all been there.

    its about a girl infatuated by a girl who barely notices him in that way. he thinks shes way out of his league, but still likes her, and wonders if they could ever be something. hes no superman, but he likes you and thats all that matters.

    if i could read your mind, would i find any trace of me at all?

    General CommentYou messed up on a couple of things... like its not, "If I could 'reach' your mind." Its read. Anywaysss, this song is adorable! I love guys who think like this. They think the girl they like should be on a pedestal.

    General Commentmy boyfriend dedicated to this song to me, and I couldn't stop smiling. :}<3
    i agree with xgilburrito. it's about a guy who thinks he's not good enough for a girl, but really, he is (even if he doesn't think it)

    hes another stupid person in love, which isnt something youd like to fall into...
    but ANYWAYS, he doesnt have very much belief in himself and so hes telling the girl hes not perfect,
    and he may make mistakes, but hes hoping she'll still like him <3

    that right there is a true man.

    i love this song, and joes cute...

    kbye.
