Lyrics

When I was your Superman

Written By: David SHELLEY & Vincent NOONAN

(Verse 1)
THERE WAS NO MOON THAT NIGHT
JUST THE SOUTHERN CROSS
STARING INTO THE FIRE
I KNEW THAT I WAS LOST
INSIDE THE CIRCLE OF GOLD
THERE IS AN EMPTY HOLE
THAT CAN SURROUND YOUR HEART
AND DEVILTAKE YOUR SOUL

(Chorus)
TAKE ME BACK
TO WHERE IT ALL BEGAN
YOU WERE MY CATWOMAN, AND I
I WAS YOUR SUPERMAN

(Verse 2)
I'M DYING INSIDE
I FEEL THE WEIGHT OF TIME
I TOOK A KNIFE AND CROSSED MY HEART
STEPPED OVER THE LINE
BUT INSIDE THIS HOLLOW PLACE
THERE IS A SEED OF BELIEF
THAT MAYBE ONE DAY BABY
YOU'LL COME BACK TO ME

(Chorus)
TAKE ME BACK
TO WHERE IT ALL BEGAN
YOU WERE MY CATWOMAN, AND I
I WAS YOUR SUPERMAN
(2X)

(Bridge)
EVERY SOUL HAS SEEN
THE DARK OF NIGHT
IF LIFE REALLY IS A DREAM
COME BACK AND MAKE IT RIGHT
YOU CAN EASE MY PAIN WITH A GENTLE TOUCH
JUST A LOOK FROM YOU
AND IT WOULDN'T HURT AS MUCH


(Solo)


(Repeat Verse 1)

(Chorus)
