I can't be Super Man
And you always hated
The thought of Spider-Man.
Doesn't matter anyway
Super heroes aren't real
They can't save the day.
But if I could be
I'd help you carry
All your burdens that
Are so heavy.
But you shut out the day,
Slap a helping hand away
No matter what I try
You always rip off my cape
Tell me what do I do
When you refused to be saved?
My inner Kryptonite
Is draining out my life
No matter how I try
I feel the fading light.
I don't want to leave your side
But I don't have the strength to fight
For the both of us tonight.
Seems like life is the Joker and he's got a plan
To screw over the Batman
I could really use a helping hand
But you don't seem to understand.
Looks like my Robin is a fake
And doesn't grasp the meaning
Of give and take.
Sometimes I just need you to be the
Wind beneath my cape,
I'll do the hard part,
Fight all the villains
And try to reach your heart.
But you've lost your will to escape
And could care less who gets saved
You're taking me down with you.
Do you know what it is you do?
Something evil has a hold on you
Something that my powers can't break through.
It breaks me to my core
My heart shatters until even the fragments
Can't break anymore
I free fall until I hit the floor
I don't want to leave you behind,
Because that passage has to be
A one way door.
Every day passes you seal your fate
You're content to stay that way
Slapping helping hearts away
And ripping off the capes
Does it make you feel good inside,
To know you've made me cry?
Cause no matter how I tried
You were never going to live your life.
My trust and love you betrayed
By shutting out the light every day.
You can't bring back those who have past
But you're determined to make the pain last.
I never wanted to be Super Man
I just wanted to help you, and take your hand
Show you some people in the world would try to understand.
