I see you in trouble, I come to your rescue
Because I’m a superhero, it’s what I do
When you’re down, at the end of your rope
I’ll lift you up and give you hope
When all you see is darkness, I’ll show you the light
When all you know is wrong, I’ll show you what’s right
When you want to die, I’ll show you life’s worth living
When you feel no one hears you, I’ll show you I’m listening
When you cry, I’ll wipe away your tears
I’ll be your strength, there’s nothing to fear
Just call my name and I’ll be there
No matter when, no matter where
And when you’re healed and can stand on your own, you may go your separate way
Because my job is done, there’s nothing left to say
I’ll fly back to my cave, and live my life of solitude
Doesn’t matter if I feel your leaving me is crude
It’s not about me, I want to see you happy
Doesn’t matter if your happiness makes me feel envy
Doesn’t matter if I’m alone, doesn’t matter if I’m sad
Doesn’t matter if I’m confused, doesn’t matter if I’m mad
Doesn’t matter if no one understands me
Doesn’t matter if no one saves me
Do you see me falling? No you don’t.
Will you come when I call? No you won’t.
Of course you’d think I’ll be fine. Why shouldn’t I be?
I’ve got superpowers, right? Nothing could possibly be wrong with me.
I’m just a stupid superhero in bright underwear
Who saves the saviour? Nobody cares.
