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."
The Prince-penned "Manic Monday" was the first song The Bangles heard coming from a car radio, but "Eternal Flame" is closest to Susanna's heart, perhaps because she sang it in "various states of undress."
