Lyrics
I am Superman
But I don't know everything
I am Superman
And you met my family
But you will not marry me
Is it the house I grew up in?
With a crater in the ground in the barn? Or...
A city full of freaks who try to kill me everyday
Well that's just my life, on any old day

I am Superman
But I don't know anything
I am Superman
And you wear my diamond ring
But you will not marry me
Is it my fortress of solitude?
Is it my X-Ray eyes on you?
Is it Louis Lane cuz I save her all day
Well that's my job
It's a crappy job

I am Superman
And I don't know everything
I am Superman
And I don't know everything

I like it. Superman never does get to settle down. It really must bother him. Love the couch picture. Thanks!

i know right?!
Thanks so much for listening, and I love that picture too. I believe it's from a documentary about an actor who makes money on the side taking photos with tourists as superman. seemed appropriate visually for sure!

A smart piece of song-writing.
I like this song too, it's a new view on an old character and a view unlike anything I've come across. I'd like to hear you record it again though, paying attention to the enunciation of the words. I had to read the lyrics to find out what they are, and since you have a good voice if you get those words out more clearly it will be all the better for it. Note that I wouldn't make this suggestion if I didn't think the song is worth it. As I wrote above, it's a smart piece of song-writing.

An interesting take
on a a superhero. I rather like the almost tired and world weary delivery. It conveys a sense of hopelessness in that he might be the most powerful being on Earth but it doesn't make him happy.

Perhaps he needs a super-shrink?

Nicely judged backing Nonso. Does what it has to do without getting in the way of the song.

Cheers
