  • Lyrics
  • This is a track from American Rock band Bon Jovi's eleventh studio album, The Circle.
  • Jon Bon Jovi has long sported a Superman tattoo on his arm and in this song he references the cartoon superhero.
  • This song was co-written by long-time Bon Jovi associate Billy Falcon, who has also written or co-written songs performed by Trace Adkins, Cher, Manfred Mann's Earth Band and Stevie Nicks. He also had his own Hot 100 Top 40 hit in 1991 with "Power Windows."
  • The song is about a boy-girl relationship. Bon Jovi explained: "It's a girl, which I watched from a distance without any possibility to do something. She is in a way like a pinball - reflects a lot of guys, very beautiful and smart but thinks it would be happier if more trusted. This song is something like a diary of the observer and I'm just the fly on the wall of what looks."
