I took a walk around the world
To ease my troubled mind
I left my body lying somewhere
In the sands of time
But I watched the world float
To the dark side of the moon
I feel there is nothing I can do

Yeah

I watched the world float
To the dark side of the moon
After all I knew it had to be
Something to do with you
I really don't mind what happens now and then
As long as you'll be my friend at the end

If I go crazy then will you still
Call me Superman
If I'm alive and well, will you be
There a-holding my hand
I'll keep you by my side
With my superhuman might
Kryptonite

You called me strong, you called me weak,
But still your secrets I will keep
You took for granted all the times
I never let you down
You stumbled in and bumped your head,
If not for me then you'd be dead
I picked you up and put you back
On solid ground

If I go crazy then will you still
Call me Superman
If I'm alive and well,
Will you be there a-holding my hand
I'll keep you by my side
With my superhuman might
Kryptonite

If I go crazy then will you still
Call me Superman
If I'm alive and well, will you be there
Holding my hand
I'll keep you by my side
With my superhuman might
Kryptonite
YEAH!

If I go crazy then will you still
Call me Superman
If I'm alive and well,
Will you be there a-holding my hand
I'll keep you by my side
With my superhuman might
Kryptonite

Woah-woah-oh
Woah-woah-oh
Woah-woah-oh
Woah-woah-oh

    When I get angered.

    My mind goes a thousand miles an hour all over the place, searching for an answer to resolve my pain that is in some way tied to you. But there's nothing I can do but want to explode.

    And when I vent, I'm am unstoppable! I have the strength of a hundred men - am I still your superman? But you! You are my kryptonite - to hold my hand; to hold my deepest hatred at bay - you keep me sane while I am alive. Pleas understand, my love for you is forever adn as strong as I can hate. I can love!

    (carol, forgive me, love.)

    Mmm, great song - both melody and lyrics combined perfectly. Meaning? All about attitude of a very good person, no matter what the cost is - he still a superman for a bad friend. Even he hold the kryptonite, became weak and feel pain is nothing. Friendship still there. Sacrifice for a backstabber friend.

    I frickin love this song! To me, it means that no matter what we've been or where we've gone before, if something happens to me, will you still be there to back me up, will you be "a-holdin' my hand"? Will you be with me unconditionally? Because you're my only weakness, the only thing that could hurt me.

    I think it means some one old like your dad or grandfather.
    Like how you will treat them when their old .

    You stumbled in and bumped your head
    if not for me youd be dead.
    I picked you up and put on solid ground
    (for me it means like when ur little you actually fell down and they helped you get up).
    Its very meaningful.

    I thought this song, was about someone who had died, or was about to die. "I took a walk around the world to ease my trouble mind." I assumed that this person was on drugs, and is basically saying if I come back, will you still be there for me, after all I have done and been through. Will I still be your hero even though I gave into my weakness?
