Mother may I lay my head down
What would you say?
If all that's lost may never be found
It's gone away

I never thought it would be me
Held so high
Fell so far
Mother may I lay my head down
I'm a falling star

Superhero won't you come and take me away
Superhero won't you come save my day

If I ever could have faked it
Oh it would show
And if I ever could have made it
Would I be gold?
I never wanted to be what they even wanted me to be
And now this story ends untainted
Without me

Superhero won't you come and take me away
Superhero won't you come and fly me away
Superhero
Superhero
Superhero won't you come
Save my day

Won't you
Won't you
Won't you take me home
Won't you
Won't you
Won't you take me home
Won't you
Won't you
Won't you take
Won't you come and take me
Won't you come rescue me
Won't you come and take me

Hero
Hero
Hero

Won't you take me home
Superhero won't you come and take me away
Superhero won't you come and fly me away
Superhero
Superhero
Oh my hero
Oh my hero
Superhero won't you come save my...

Mother may I lay my head down
What would you say
If all that's lost may never be found
It's gone away
I never thought it would be me
Held so high
Fell so far
Mother may I lay my head down
