Out the door
Just in time
Head down four-o-five
Gotta meet the new boss by 8 AM.

Phone rings in the car
The Wife is working hard
She's running late tonight again

Well -
I know what I've been told
You gotta work to feed the soul
But I can't do this all on my own
No I know I'm no Superman
I'm no Superman

You've got your love on line
You think you're doing fine
But you're just plugged into the wall
That deck of Tarot Cards -
Won't get you very far
There ain't no hand to break your fall

Well -
I know what I've been told
You gotta know just when to fold
But I can't do this on my own
No I know, I'm no Superman
I'm no Superman

(That's Right)

You've crossed the finish line
Won the race but lost your mind
Was it worth it after all?
I need you here with me
'Cause love is all we need
Just take ahold of the hand that breaks the fall

Well I know what I've been told
Gotta break free to break the mold
But I can't do this all on my own
No I can't do this all on my own
I know That I'm no -
Superman.
I'm no superman
I'm no superman
Someday we'll be together
I'm no superman
Someday-ay-ay-ay
Someday we'll be togeter
Somday-ay-ay-ay
I'm no superman
