I'm Not Superman

I can't lift you up and fly you through the sky,
I can't shoot fire from my eyes.
And I'm not super strong,
I couldn't lift a thousand tons to save my life.
So, what is about me?
That you find so fascinating.
'Cause in the end, I'm nothing more than human like you,
So, why do you think I'm so special?
I'll be your protection,
I'll do the best that I can.
But every time I get near you,
I feel so sick.
You're like Kryptonite,
My only weakness.
I love you but,
I'm not the man of steel.
I wanna be your protection,
I'll try to be there when you call my name.
Promise you won't hate me, if you found out the truth,
That I don't have special powers to make you feel safe.
I wanna be by your side, sick or not,
With you, I know I can survive.
But if I let you down,
I break your heart, or I'm not good enough for you.
Just remember,
I'm not Superman.
I can't run super fast,
And take you to Paris in the blink of an eye.
I can't mend your broken heart,
'Cause I don't have X-ray vision to find the pieces.
I don't have super hearing to hear your every whisper,
Or I'd know what you were thinking all the time.
I'm not the super-powered man you think I am,
I've told you that time and time again.
Still you insist that I am so special,
And that I'm the only one for you.
I'll be your protection,
I'll do the best that I can.
But every time I get near you,
I feel so sick.
You're like Kryptonite,
My only weakness.
I love you but,
I'm not the man of steel.
I wanna be your protection,
I'll try to be there when you call my name.
Promise you won't hate me, if you found out the truth,
That I don't have special powers to make you feel safe.
I wanna be by your side, sick or not,
With you, I know I can survive.
But if I let you down,
I break your heart, or I'm not good enough for you.
Just remember,
I'm not Superman.
I don't have super breath to blow your fears away,
I can't breathe out ice and chill your anger.
I don't have bullet proof skin, couldn't survive a gunshot,
I don't have microscopic vision to see so far into your eyes.
I'm not super-powered, but I do have one ability,
The ability to love you.
Oh, to love you,
You're special to me.
I wanna be your protection,
I'll try to be there when you call my name.
Promise you won't hate me, if you found out the truth,
That I don't have special powers to make you feel safe.
I wanna be by your side, sick or not,
With you, I know I can survive.
But if I let you down,
I break your heart, or I'm not good enough for you.
Just remember,
I'm not Superman.
I'm not Superman,
I'm not Superman.
I'm not, I'm not,
I'm not, I'm not,
I'm not.
Just remember,
I'm not Superman.
