She’s watching the taxi driver, he pulls away
She’s been locked up inside her apartment a hundred days

She says, “Yeah, he's still coming, just a little bit late
He got stuck at the laundromat washing his cape”
She's just watching the clouds roll by and they spell her name like Lois Lane
And she smiles, oh the way she smiles

She's talking to angels, counting the stars
Making a wish on a passing car
She's dancing with strangers, falling apart
Waiting for Superman to pick her up
In his arms, In his arms
Waiting for Superman

She's out on the corner trying to catch a glimpse
Nothing's making sense
She's been chasing an answer
A sign lost in the abyss, this Metropolis

She says... Yeah, he's still coming, just a little bit late
He got stuck at the Five and Dime saving the day”
She says... If life was a movie, then it wouldn't end like this
Left without a kiss
Still, she smiles, the way she smiles, yeah

She's talking to angels, she's counting the stars
Making a wish on a passing car
She's dancing with strangers, she's falling apart
Waiting for Superman to pick her up
In his arms, In his arms
She's waiting for Superman

To lift her up and take her anywhere
Show her love and climbing through the air
Save her now before it's too late tonight
Oh, like a speeding light
And she smiles

She's talking to angels, she's counting the stars
Making a wish on a passing car
She's dancing with strangers, she's falling apart
Waiting for Superman to pick her up
In his arms, In his arms
She's waiting for Superman

To lift her up and take her anywhere
Show her love and climbing through the air
Save her now before it's too late tonight
She's waiting for Superman

    It's about a girl who keeps waiting and waiting for the right guy to come along, her hero, her 'Superman'. She's hoping and wishing for him to come protect her even when she's been broken so many times before. And sometimes she loses a little hope, because she just can't find him, but no matter what she puts a smile on her face and acts like she's happy even though inside she's still breaking and waiting for that one guy to finally come and save her. This is one of my favorite songs of all time. I think it's beautiful and the lyrics are just amazing.

    I don't know why everyone is saying it's about a girl. It's about a girl- and A guy who always does good by everyone and never get's the appreciation that he deserves. Also, aside from him, It's about the girl who is waiting for someone like him. She's waiting for a Superman- which he is. So as he goes by saving the day and getting punished for pretty much saving so many people, he still continues to help and it finally pays off when the girl and him collide as her saves her from bullies who torment her. He then almost gets in trouble for that too before she cleared things up and hugged him showing him that he is appreciated.
