  • She's watching the taxi driver, he pulls away
    She's been locked up inside her apartment a hundred days
    She says, yeah, he's still coming, just a little bit late
    He got stuck at the laundromat washing his cape"
    She's just watching the clouds roll by and they spell her name like Lois Lane
    And she smiles, oh the way she smiles

    She's talking to angels, counting the stars
    Making a wish on a passing car
    She's dancing with strangers, falling apart
    Waiting for Superman to pick her up
    In his arms yeah, in his arms yeah
    Waiting for Superman

    She's out on the corner trying to catch a glimpse
    Nothing's making sense
    She's been chasing an answer
    A sign lost in the abyss, this Metropolis
    She says "Yeah, he's still coming, just a little bit late"
    He got stuck at the Five and Dime saving the day"
    She says "If life was a movie, then it wouldn't end like this"
    Left without a kiss
    Still, she smiles, oh the way she smiles, yeah

    She's talking to angels, she's counting the stars
    Making a wish on a passing car
    She's dancing with strangers, she's falling apart
    Waiting for Superman to pick her up
    In his arms yeah, in his arms yeah
    She's waiting for Superman

    To lift her up and take her anywhere
    Show her love and climbing through the air
    Save her now, before it's too late tonight
    Oh like the speed of light
    And she smiles

    She's talking to angels, she's counting the stars
    Making a wish on a passing car
    She's dancing with strangers, she's falling apart
    Waiting for Superman to pick her up
    In his arms yeah, oh in his arms yeah
    She's waiting for Superman

    To lift her up and take her anywhere
    Show her love and climbing through the air
    Save her now before it's too late tonight
    She's waiting for Superman Writer/s: MARTIN JOHNSON
