A tired man
in his chair
doesn't move
he only stares

at the machine
across the room
there's nothing there
it's not getting through

He shakes his head
finally stands up
throws his hands up
in the air

A blinding flash across the room
A sudden crash
A sonic boom
Changes everything he knew

It's everything he's never seen
the biggest deal there's ever been
described in light upon the screen

Nobody else is stronger than I am
Yesterday I moved a mountain
I bet I could be your hero
I am a mighty little man

I am a mighty little man

I am a mighty little man

[song sample ends here]

    General CommentDude, there's actually like a whole two more minutes to this song, which is amazing. They follow as (if anyone's interested):

    From way up here you can't look down
    As of now there is no ground
    The microscope's been turned around

    Don't be alarmed
    Don't make a fuss
    He's still like you
    He's one of us
    He'll come back before too long

    Takes a breath
    Clears his mind
    Grabs his coat
    Steps outside

    An empty street
    There's no one there
    He lifts himself
    Into the air

    A billion thoughts
    Expressed as one
    Etched in words
    Across the sun

    And it said:

    Nobody else is stronger than I am
    Yesterday I moved a mountain
    I bet I could be your hero
    I am a mighty little man

    Nobody else is stronger than I am
    Yesterday I moved a mountain
    I bet I could be your hero
    I am a mighty little man

    General CommentThis song is about him wanting to move on, so he isn't known as "the guy from Blue's Clues" the rest of his life. The lyrics are pretty obvious that he grew tired with a part of his life, and wanted to end it and start a new part.

    General CommentI think it's about discovering inner heroism/strength.

    General CommentI agree with all of you. This is actually my favorite song off SfD along with Troposhere. Actually nevermind, I don't have a favorite. I wish he'd tour in CA again soon..

    General CommentActually, as opposed to what ThePlaygroundMiracle said, in an interview with Steve Burns, he said that he doesn't mind at all being "Steve, from Blues Clues", he even said he's proud of it. It's where he got his start, and he's not ashamed at all. Hell, the interview was done with him sitting in "The Thinking Chair"

    As for my idea of what the song is. I think that it's kind of saying that anyone can be strong, in their own way. Size and physical ability have nothing to do with it, everyone has inner strength, and you shouldn't let people tell you otherwise.

    General CommentI think ThePlaygroundMircle was close to right. He wanted to move on from his past and do something new. But I definately don't think that he regrets who he was and how he got here. I think it's a song about recognizing who you were and using it to make a stronger future for yourself.
