Oohhh, Ohhh,
I loved you, and loved you
With all that's in my power
I was used and abused
Til I was sweet and sour

I kissed you, I kissed you
And gave you all my sugar
You knew that I'd be useless
If I let you know what you were to me
I thought it would be okay
We shared everything, no way

And I told you,
I told you how I was such a sad case
You said you could save me
I'm doing the saving

Went to sleep with superhero
And woke up with villain
Killing, killing my love
Oh what happened?
Don't know what happened
You got me fighting
Like wonder woman

But, I, I, I don't wanna fi-i-ight
I, I, I don't wear no ti-i-ights
And I can't fly-y-y
I'm no, I'm no superhero
Oh, oh, oh
I, I, I don't wanna fi-i-ight
I, I, I don't wear no ti-i-ights
And I can't fly-y-y
I'm no, I'm no superhero

Oh no, don't know what happened.
Don't know what happened

I keep trying and trying
To wrap my head around it
Cryin so can't let
Nobody see how I'm actin

You hurt me, you hurt me
And no not physically
Ain't got no bumps and bruises to show people
What your doin to me

I thought it would be okay
But you see, I heard everything you said
And I knew it,
I knew that you'd turn out to be a sad case
You said you could save me
I'm doing the saving

I, I, I don't wanna fi-i-ight
I, I, I don't wear no ti-i-ights
And I can't fly-y-y
I'm no, I'm no superhero
Oh, oh, oh
I, I, I don't wanna fi-i-ight
I, I, I don't wear no ti-i-ights
And I can't fly-y-y
I'm no, I'm no superhero

You got me using all my kungfu tricks (tricks)
Hit em' with the roundhouse kick, to the temple
1234, Hung-Ha-Ho!
TKO, Taekwondo
You know, when you see that
Hand go 'Chop! '
Everything stops, the flows so hot
Like steam from a coffee pot

Rush hour, no traffic
No Jet Lei, just Jackie
You actin like you stay behind, go re-up up on your classes
You old fake, ole wanna be superman
Give Clark Kent back his glasses man
I hit you with the judo kick so fast
You looked back like "What happened?"

I, I, I don't wanna fi-i-ight
I, I, I don't wear no ti-i-ights
And I can't fly-y-y
I'm no, I'm no superhero
Oh, oh, oh
I, I, I don't wanna fi-i-ight
I, I, I don't wear no ti-i-ights
And I can't fly-y-y
I'm no, I'm no superhero

    'superhero', in my opinion, is about how someone's boyfriend who was all that, but then just forgot about their girlfriend. So she felt used and abused and hurt on the inside. So she has to act like a superhero to fight the villan (the boyfriend) and save any other girl from being used. So she's using all her kung fu trinks and hitting him with a roundhouse kick to the temple and using taekwondo and hitting him with a judo kick so fast he looks back like "what happened? " haha.

    What "superhero" means to me is that it's about realizing we all have the strength to overcome our weeknesses, much like many superheros do in modern day tales. After all, we are the most powerful when we believe ourselves to be so. We have the most faith when we have more for ourselves and "superhero" is about realizing those weaknesses and finding the streanght to overcome.

    In a relationship with your lover. Everything was perfect they were your "superhero" everything you could imagine and hope for. And the next thing you know they turn into a "villain. " "killing" tearing you apart and breaking you down emotionally. You realize you're the one holding you both up and you just don't see the point anymore. So you let it go, because you yourself are not a "superhero. " it's not the role you signed up for. ( that's my interpretation of the song )
