I heard the song years ago but didn’t hear the words
Until last night when I almost cried.
Heroes aren’t all that special
Because they walk upon the earth.
He’s just a man making it safe for all to sleep
While looking deep inside of him to know how to feel,
Nothing special, in fact funny with a red sheet
Wrapped around his imposing stance.
Can you stand tall and sense that life isn’t easy
Even though you’re there to catch the fall and save
Those who believe that flying is special
When you know it’s just what is inside of you.
(With gratefulness to Five For Fighting – Superman)
