"Metropolis" as written by Adam R. Young and Matthew Arnold Thiessen....
Oh oh, I can't even take it in
Oh oh, I can't even take it in
Oh oh, I left my heart in Metropolis

So far apart, I check that the coast was clear,
I feel like a post card,
I wish you were here
Subway through the dark, tearing through the park
Taxi down the street, the avenue's at my feet
Don't matter much to me
What it is that I do
As long as I'm coming home With you

Oh oh oh, as far as I can see,
You're the only one, the only one who can get to me
Like a high jacked plane,
Or a runaway train,
Or a speeding bullet,
There's no stopping this!
I left my heart in Metropolis!

A thousand miles feels like a million years,
Like hundreds of postcards
That say I wish you were here!
Airplane through the sky, grey all racing by,
Air bike on the beach, sailboat on the sea,
Don't matter much to me
What it is that I do,
As long as I'm coming home with you

Oh oh oh, as far as I can see,
You're the only one, the only one who can get to me
Like a high jacked plane,
Or a runaway train,
Or a speeding bullet,
There's no stopping this!
I left my heart in Metropolis!
I left my heart in Metropolis!

Like a high jacked plane,
Or a runaway train,
Or a speeding bullet,
There's no stopping this!
I left my heart in Metropolis!
I left my heart in Metropolis!
I left my heart in Metropolis!
I left my heart in Metropolis!

Oh oh, I can't even take it in
Oh oh, I can't even take it in
Oh oh, I can't even take it in
Oh oh, I left my heart in Metropolis

    Song MeaningAdam said it himself, this song is, yes, about Superman. However, it is mostly about bullying. And yes this is made obvious by the music video.

    General CommentTo me, this song seems like a long-distance relationship. I think this could be talking about a guy going to see his long-distance girlfriend for the first time in months, and when it says 'I left my heart in Metropolis,' the song's talking about leaving his heart with her, in the city she lives in.
