Lyrics

Somebody’s Hero ©2016 Karen Potje

You can be condescending. Promise a happy ending
But it’s not over till you name the day
Aren’t you an inspiration? Loved by a hungry nation
Snap on your satin cape and fly away

Don’t take it personally
You look like somebody’s hero
Maybe I can make believe you’re mine

You can be so convincing. Quietly self-sufficient
You can’t be constant though. You come and go
Studied and sympathetic. The right words always ready
You could be lonely but I’d never know

Don’t take it personally
You look like somebody’s hero
Maybe I can make believe you’re mine
Run for a phone booth
While I hold my breath, count down to zero
Baby, aren’t they getting hard to find?

Look! Do you see? Is it him? Could it be?
Cape flying high off his shoulders
Can he be real? Man of flesh. Man of steel
Man, but he looks so much older

You were the perfect stranger. Laughed in the face of danger
You got the scars to prove you never cry
Things in the rear view mirror -- closer than they appear
Your distant past’s about to pass you by

Don’t take it personally
You look like somebody’s hero
Maybe I can make believe you’re mine
Run for a phone booth while
I hold my breath, count down to zero
Maybe you could save me with your life line

Look! Do you see? Is it him? Could it be?
Cape flying high off his shoulders
Can he be real? Man of flesh. Man of steel
Man, but he looks so much older

Man of Steel, you’re getting past your prime
Hurry Babe. You’re running out time
Man of Steel, you’re getting past your prime
