I can\'t stand to fly
I\'m not that naive
I\'m just out to find
The better part of me
I\'m more than a bird:I\'m more than a plane
More than some pretty face beside a train
It\'s not easy to be me
Wish that I could cry
Fall upon my knees
Find a way to lie
About a home I\'ll never see
It may sound absurd:but don\'t be naive
Even Heroes have the right to bleed
I may be disturbed:but won\'t you conceed
Even Heroes have the right to dream
It\'s not easy to be me
Up, up and away:away from me
It\'s all right:You can all sleep sound tonight
I\'m not crazy:or anything:
I can\'t stand to fly
I\'m not that naive
Men weren\'t meant to ride
With clouds between their knees
I\'m only a man in a silly red sheet
Digging for kryptonite on this one way street
Only a man in a funny red sheet
Looking for special things inside of me
It\'s not easy to be me.

    Uh. Well first these aren't the full correct lyics. second, it reminds me of a friend of mine.

    Here are the proper lyrics.

    I can't stand to fly
    I'm not that naive
    I'm just out to find
    The better part of me

    I'm more than a bird:I'm more than a plane
    More than some pretty face beside a train
    It's not easy to be me

    Wish that I could cry
    Fall upon my knees
    Find a way to lie
    About a home I'll never see

    It may sound absurd:but don't be naive
    Even Heroes have the right to bleed
    I may be disturbed:but won't you conceed
    Even Heroes have the right to dream
    It's not easy to be me

    Up, up and away:away from me
    It's all right:You can all sleep sound tonight
    I'm not crazy:or anything:

    I can't stand to fly
    I'm not that naive
    Men weren't meant to ride
    With clouds between their knees

    I'm only a man in a silly red sheet
    Digging for kryptonite on this one way street
    Only a man in a funny red sheet
    Looking for special things inside of me

    Inside of me, Inside of me, Inside of me, Inside of me

    I'm only a man in a funny red sheet
    I'm only a man looking for a dream,
    I'm only a man in a funny red sheet

    Its not easy

    It's not easy to be me.

This song mean more to me than anyone will or could ever know .
