You Can Call Me Clark (Your Un-Superman).

You Can Call Me Clark (Your Un-Superman).

I can save the world,
But can the world save me,
It’s hard to be un-super now,
When no one wants me to be,
I can love and I can cry,
And I can feel like you,
Everyone can see me fly,
But no one sees me true,

You can call me Clark,
If you truly can,
I would be so proud to be,
Your un-superman,
You can save my days,
In ordinary ways,
You can hold my hand so I won’t,
Need to be so brave,

I could win you away,
With my powers, it’s true,
O’, but I just want the power,
To put a crush on you,
I can jump and I can fly,
And I can win, I know,
But I want to know what it’s like,
To need someone to hold,

You can call me Clark,
If you truly can,
I would be so proud to be,
Your un-superman,
You can save my days,
In ordinary ways,
You can hold my hand so I won’t,
Need to be so brave,

O’, you can save my days,
You can hold my hand,
You can call me Clark,
Your un-superman,
Yeah, you can call me Clark,
Your un-superman.

  1. interesting view of an American icon... my only suggestion would be to add one final line... something like, "...but if you tell anyone about this, Lois, so help me, I will burn out your heart with my laser-vision!" haha.. j/k.
