Lyrics

"Superman" (Cancer Survivor Song)

Written By: Jimmy Charles,Goose Gossett, Phil Shulka

I'm up every morning
Best shape of my life
I'm everything to my 3 kids
a Lover to my wife
Still run five miles when I get home
Play pick up at the Y
So whys this doctor telling me I should be scared for my Life
And I didn't wanna come here
I swear I'm feeling fine
You say I got Cancer Man
I say you lost your mind!
Chorus
Its the hardest thing I'll ever do
Swallow my pride and face the truth
go through hell, feel the Fear
Praise the Lord that I'm still here
Cause I still got more miles here in this road
And I 'm here to help you all to understand
You can't fight this battle on your own
You Ain't Superman
V2.
I struggled through the treatment
I fought hard through the pain
there were days where I would give up hope and give God all the Blame
Until I thought of all I had to loose, I saw my Family
Then it finally all hit Home
This wasn't about me
Chorus,
Its the Hardest thing I'll ever do
Swallow my pride, face the truth
Go through Hell, feel the fear
praise the Lord that I'm still here
Cause I still have more miles here on this road
and here to help you to understand
You can't fight this battle on your own
You Ain't Supeman
Bridge;
To Everyone who's had to loose
to every Man that wears the Blue
to every guy scared to know
Know that you are not Alone
Chorus
Its the hardest thing you'll ever do
Swallow your pride and face the truth
You'll go through hell, Feel the Fear
But if you press on You'll still be here
Casue you still have more miles here on this road
And I hope that you can understand
You can't fight this battle on your own
No ones Superman! No ones Superman, No ones Superman!

Notes: This song was written for a Nationwide Cancer Organization called Zero Cancer, the (End of Prostate Cancer) It was designed to bring awareness in Men to get checked for Prostate Cancer, as early detection is so critical. We flew a Cancer Survivor (Phil Shulka) in to tell his story and help raise awareness. The song helped raise $400,000 so far, I performed it live in front of thousands of Prostate Cancer Survivors and their families and it continues to touch lives and inspire across the country!

Lyrics
I'm up every morning
I'm in the best shape of my life
I'm everything to my 3 kids
And a lover to my wife

Still run 5 miles when I get home
play pick up at the "Y"
So why's this doctor tellin me
I should be scared for my life

I didn't even want to come here
I swear I'm feelin fine

So when you say that I got cancer man
I think you've lost your mind

It's the hardest thing
I'll ever do
Swallow my pride
Face the truth
Go through hell
Feel the fear
Praise The Lord that I'm still here

And I've still got some more miles here on this road
Now I'm here to help you all to understand
That You can't fight this battle on your own
You ain't superman

I struggled through the treatment
I fought hard through the pain
There were days where I give up hope
Give God all the blame

But then I thought of all I had to lose
I saw my family
Then it finally all hit home
This wasn't about me

Chorus

To everyone that's had to lose
To Everyman that wears the blue
To every guy who's scared to know
You are not alone

It's the hardest thing you'll ever do
Swallow your pride
Face the truth
You'll go through hell
Feel the fear
But if you press on you still be here

Cause you still got more miles here on this road
And I hope that you can understand
That you can't fight this battle on your own

No ones superman
