"Superwoman" as written by Linda Perry, Steve Mostyn and Alicia Augello-cook....
Everywhere I'm turning
Nothing seems complete
I stand up and I'm searching
For the better part of me
I hang my head from sorrow
State of humanity
I wear it on my shoulders
Gotta find the strength in me

I am a Superwoman
Yes I am
Yes she is
Even when I'm a mess
I still put on a vest
With an S on my chest
Oh yes
I'm a Superwoman

For all the mothers fighting
For better days to come
And all my women, all my women sitting here trying
To come home before the sun
And all my sisters
Coming together
Say yes I will
Yes I can

I am a Superwoman
Yes I am
Yes she is
Even when I'm a mess
I still put on a vest
With an S on my chest
Oh yes
I'm a Superwoman

When I'm breaking down
And I can't be found
And I start to get weak
Cause no one knows
Me underneath these clothes
But I can fly
We can fly, ooh

I am a Superwoman
Yes I am
Yes she is
Even when I'm a mess
I still put on a vest
With an S on my chest
Oh yes
I'm a Superwoman

Oh ooh

    General CommentI freakin' LOVE this song.

    "Cause no one knows
    Me underneath these clothes
    But I can fly"

    This hits me hard. There are so many things about me that people don't know about because I hide them. Most people don't know how strong I really am. That's why I love the "cause no one knows me underneath these clothes but i can fly" part. It fits perfectly.

    "Even when I'm a mess
    I still put on a vest
    With an S on my chest"

    Just an empowering song for women. Alicia Keys is amazing!

    General CommentThis is one of my favorite songs on As I Am because its not just about love or crushes or break-ups or anything, its about the power of women and how much work they do, moms especially!
