Tall dark and superman, he puts papers in his briefcase and drives away
To save the world or go to work- it's the same thing to me
He's got his mothers eyes, his fathers ambition
I wonder if he knows how much that I miss him
I hang on every word you say, and you smile and say how are you?
And I'll say just fine.
I always forget to tell you I love you. I'll love you forever

I watched Superman fly away
You got a busy day today
Go save the world
I'll be around
And I watched superman fly away
Come back I'll be with you some day
I'll be right here on the ground
When you come back down

Tall, dark and beautiful, he's complicated, he's irrational
But I hope someday he'll take me away and save the day, yeh
Something in his deep brown eyes has me saying,
He's not all bad like his reputation
And I can't hear one single word they say.
You'll leave, got places to be and I'll be OK
I always forget to tell you I love you
I loved you from the very first day

I watched Superman fly away
You got a busy day today
Go save the world, I'll be around
And I watched Superman fly away
Come back, I'll be with you someday
I'll be right here on the ground
When you come back down

And I watch you fly around the world
And I hope you don't take some other girl
Don't forget, don't forget about me
I'm far away but I never let you go
I'm love struck and looking out the window
Don't forget, don't forget where I'll be
Right here wishing the flowers were from you,
Wishing the card was from you wishing the call was from you
'Cause I've loved you from the very first day

I watched Superman fly away
You got a busy day today
Go save the world, I'll be around
Forever and ever
And I watched Superman fly away
I swear I'll be with you someday
I'll be right here on the ground
When you come back down

When you come back down

    It's like saying, no matter how small the things that guy does, it's special. You loved him for a long time now, but still hasn't have the courage to tell him about your feelings.

    I think it means that taylor has someone who seems like superman to her and that he is special in her life.

    I think superman is supposed to mean that taylor has a man who is a hero to her in her heart and she knows that he makes a difference in the world or at least to her.
