Verse 1

Murders and crimes in headlines,

It looks like the bad outshines

The good by a yard and twelve.

We're all obsessed with ourselves.

Verse 2

Friends tell me not to think much,

We can't do a thing as such

To make it stop, make life fair.

True, but I can't just stand there.

Chorus

Did you know a smile can brighten up someone's day?

A hand on a shoulder takes the burden away?

Yes, we can't beat up bad guys, we're not superman.

But I'll do everything else that I can.

Verse 3

If everybody turned cold,

There won't be a hand to hold.

If everyone was selfish,

None would ever find real peace.

Verse 4

And I refuse to burn out,

I can't ignore silent shouts.

I can't stop reaching out to

People around me and you.

Chorus

Did you know a smile can brighten up someone's day?

A hand on a shoulder takes the burden away?

Yes, we can't beat up bad guys, we're not superman.

But I'll do everything else that I can.
