Daughtry – Waiting For Superman lyrics
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

    My best friend who recently passed away unexpectedly used to sing this song to me all the time. We were together for a short time and even after we broke up we were still best friends and he was always there for me. This was his song dedicated to me. Every time I would be upset he would sing it to me. When we would video chat at night he would sing me to sleep while he slept on the other line. He never didn’t sing the song. When we would hang out at the library I would catch him singing it and he would just look at me and smile. I miss his smile. Fly high man! D.J.O. 9.19.1997~10.5.2017

    In my opinion, this song is about a woman who is waiting to be saved by a man who'll fall in love with her, and sweep her off of her feet. She's waiting around for her "Superman" to come and save her from feeling lonely. It seems like in this song is saying that she's falling apart from dancing with strangers, because she can't find "The one", and she's still looking up in the sky, wishing and hoping that one day he'll come. It's sad, but understanding with good music to it. It's a beautiful song, and I love it.
