about

(I'm Not Your) Superman speaks of the pressure of being dreamed up as a hero.

It features the marvellous Joshua Burnell on keys, Hugh Bradley on electric bass, John Arneson on drums, and John Rodgers on lead guitar.

lyrics

Don’t want to be your hero
Dragging you from the ledge
Driving every day down at zero
Living every night on the edge
Don’t want to be your soldier
Don’t want to be your king
Don’t you know now I’m older
I ache with everything

CHORUS

Oh, I’m not your Superman, can you
Catch me baby, catch me if you can
Oh, I’m not your Superman, can you
Catch me baby, catch me if you can

Don’t want to be a Lone Ranger
Riding off into the sun
I ain’t some tall, dark stranger
Can’t be the holy one
No, I’m not some dealer
The gangster of your dreams
Some kind of mystical healer
Who cures your energy streams

CHORUS

Don’t want to be your hero
Dragging you from the ledge
Driving every day down at zero
Living every night on the edge
These heroes that your seeing
They stand like ancient kings
But I’m just a human being
Ain’t got no magical wings

CHORUS
