You can tell by the way
She walks that she's my girl
You can tell by the way
She talks she woos the world
You can see in her eyes
That no one is her change
She's my girl
My supergirl

And then she'd say it's OK
I got lost on the way
But I'm a super girl
And super girls don't cry
And then she'd say it's alright
I got home late last night
But I'm a super girl
And super girls just fly

And then she'd say
That nothing can go wrong
When you're in love
What can be wrong?
And then she'd laugh
The night time into day
Pushing her fear
Further alone

And then she'd say it's OK
I got lost on the way
But I'm a super girl
And super girls don't cry
And then she'd say it's alright
I got home late last night
But I'm a super girl
And super girls just fly

And then she'd shout
Down the line
Tell me she's got no more time
'Cause she's a supergirl
And supergirl's don't cry

And then she'd scream in my face
Tell me to leave
Leave this place
'Cause she's a supergirl
And supergirl's just fly

Yeah she's a supergirl
A supergirl
She's so in seeds, she's burning trees
She's so in seeds, she's burning streams
Yeah she's a supergirl
A supergirl
A supergirl
My supergirl

    Song Meaningi think its about a girl who was hurt before, and finds it hard to let anyone in
    she leans on excuses such as "im a supergirl" and "im strong", and says she can deal with it alone
    the guy tries to commune with her but she blocks him out of fear for being hutr again
    i watched the clip... in there they make love, and in the end, just hug
    she tries to be free and be herself but she stops herself, just her human needs helped her a bit, and afterwards she couldnt help but to shut her emotions down again
    i love this song.

    General Commentwell, to me, this song is about a girl who has been doing everything by herself her entire life. she's never had someone to actually rely on, so she got used to being independent and to managing things on her own. and now here he is - the boy who wants to help her, who wants to cook her dinner and who wants to be with her.
    and she just can't let go of her old habits, even though he seems to understand her and even though he seems to be perfect for her. she just can't stay and has to move on on her own. which is pretty sad. but I love the lyrics.

    General CommentThis song is very good, I can't understand why it never made to Australia...? I agree that it's about a girl that can't be happy..

    General CommentI agree with romankazimir2003; the lines "she's sewing seeds, she's burning trees" seem to state that she first turns their world around and then leaves them with nothing. She doesn't realize that when you sew seeds a consequence is that a tree grows from that, methaphorically speaking. She's kind of all over the place.

    It just seems to me that she's young and free-spirited, being the indepent girl who enjoys her freedom and shouldn't get into a relationship because she will never be able to make the commitment it requires. She's a tough one.

    My InterpretationThis song is probably about a girl the author/loves .
    He knows her vulnerabilities but repects her fora all she is.
    Although she tries not to cry or to show herself emotional, he knows her deep inside and for him she's definitely a supergirl...
    I also think it's a kind of hommage toall the "supergirls" who try to carry on whatever the circunstances(love pain,,,)

    General CommentI think this song is about a girl who is unfaithful to her boyfriend and stonewalls him. It is about what she says, as an excuse for being late home.

    General Commenti love this song, i think is how this guy sees the girl he loves, with all her qualities and how he feels about her. but one thing i don't get is the video if someone can explain me...
