"My Superman" as written by and John Hill Santi White....
Well you're a liar and
Your cues are all wrong
But I can't count all the ways you woo me
I watch you capture
What I can't hold
Now make it make some sense to me

You are
You are my [Repeat x3]
Superman

Make it fly
Bless your soul
You get by
Take me along
But all the static here it's breaking you a-part
You can't stay the way you, you, you, you

You are
You are my [Repeat x3]
Superman

    General CommentI love this song.

    The way I interpret the song is its like she is saying, just like superman with 2 identites, she hates him, yet for some unknown reason she cant get over him. Even thought the signs are ther there. She fees as if she is in love with 2 people although its the same person.

    "Well you're a liar and
    Your cues are all wrong
    but I can't count all the ways you woo me
    I watch you capture
    What I can't hold
    Now make it make some sense to me"


    Great song

    General Commentin addition to the above verse the song continues with (loose interpretation of the lyics):

    you are, you are my
    you are, you are my
    you are, you are my
    superman...

    you got to live...

    make it (hard)
    bless your soul
    you get by
    take me alone

    but all the static, yeah
    staring you all, boy
    so get out of the way
    you you...

    you are, you are my...
    superman

    you you you gave me away
    so go go go now
    you know you saved me
    don't dont put your hands down

    you are, you are my...
    superman

    you got to live...

    as far as meaning... i sense some serious condescending undertones.

    General CommentThis is an amazing song... Personally, I think it's Santigold's best on her record. It's so strong, yet her lyrics make her seem so weak. To me, it's a about a guy (maybe a past lover?) that she can't get over. He'll always be her Superman, whether she wants him to be or not. He'll always amaze her, even though he's done some terrible things to her. I love the line "You've got to let me get by, Bless your soul, You get by, Take me along". It shows that Superman has moved on from her, but she hasn't moved on. She knows she has to move on/get by, but she still wants to go along with Superman. Very well done, Santi.
