"Superman Tonight" as written by Jon Bon Jovi, Billy Falcon and Richard Sambora....
There's something about you
I wanna rescue
I don't even know you
So what does that mean

Maybe I'm cynical
I'm painfully logical
You're tragic and beautiful
And that's good enough for me

You're looking for a hero, but it's just my old tattoo
Tonight I swear I'd sell my soul to be a hero for you

Who's gonna save you
When the stars fall from your sky
And who's gonna pull you in
When the tide gets too high
Who's gonna hold you
When you turn out the lights
I won't lie I wish that I
Could be your superman tonight

If somebody sent you
An angel to save you
What would you tell him to turn him away

That your heart don't break
That your lips don't kiss
That life is just a lie
That heaven don't exist?

Who's gonna save you
When the stars fall from your sky
And who's gonna pull you in
When the tide gets too high
Who's gonna hold you
When you turn out the lights
I won't lie I wish that I
Could be your superman tonight

Who's gonna fix you
The next time you break down
Stranded alone by the side of the road
It's your baggage that's dragging you down
Don't look back
Let it go

Oh, oh

Who's gonna save you
When the stars fall from your sky
And who's gonna pull you in
When the tide gets too high
Who's gonna hold you
When you turn out the lights
I won't lie I wish that I
Was that superman

Who's gonna save you
When the stars fall from your sky
And who's gonna pull you in
When the tide gets too high
Who's gonna hold you
When you turn out the lights
I won't lie I wish that I
Could be your superman tonight

Woah, woah, woah oh
Woah, woah, woah oh
Woah, woah, woah oh
Woah, woah, woah oh

    General CommentIn an interview about the new album, Jon said he has a specific idea of who the girl is in this song but wouldn't say who. I like the idea behind it: wishing you could help someone but knowing it's just not possible.

    My InterpretationI can't shake the feeling that this song is about his daughter, actually. She's growing up, and he's coming to terms with having to stand aside and let her go. He can't catch her all the time, can't be her Superman all the time, but he still wants to be.

    My InterpretationI think this song is about a man loving a woman he just met. The woman has her probems, but regardless her difficult personality he sees something beautifull in her and he's willing to accept her as she is.
    The song develops in him being there for her in her time of needs and in the good times.
    He's also able to let her free, but being there for again if necesarry.
