Here’s a snippet:

 

I wish that I could cry, fall upon my knees.  Find a way to lie about a home I’ll never see.  It may sound absurd, but don’t be naive, even heroes have a right to bleed.  I may be disturbed, but won’t you concede, even heroes have the right to dream.  It’s not easy to be me.

 There were a lot of attributes about Superman that were very popular, but the ones that this song – and fans like myself – seem to value most was the ability to “never tell a lie”. It wasn’t that he could fly, leap tall buildings in a single bound, or run faster than a locomotive, but his honesty, his heart, and his passion that made him a true hero.  I relate to how he felt as an orphan, having that strong desire to find an identity, to belong somewhere  to someone.  No matter how magnificent Superman’s abilities, his greatest attributes were his love and use of his powers to save an often ungrateful and selfish world.
