  • Living, loving, ain't going to waste my life
    Singing music, someday the sun don't shine
    I don't want to be the one,
    The one that can never say,
    "I need to let it out, won't you let me in"

    Give it all up, surrender thankfully
    Fall down on my knees, my hands open wide
    I don't want to be the one,
    The one that can never say,
    "I need to let it out, won't you let me in"

    Look in the mirror, even with a broken heart I'm fine
    Keep on pushing, getting closer to peace of mind
    Look in the mirror, even with a broken heart I'm fine
    Living is so sweet now with Superman inside

    No more running, ain't going to hide away
    I'm standing outside in the pouring rain
    'Cause I don't want to be the one,
    The one that can never say,
    "I need to let it out, won't you let me in"

    Look in the mirror, even with a broken heart I'm fine
    Keep on pushing, getting closer to peace of mind
    Look in the mirror, even with a broken heart I'm fine
    Living is so sweet now with Superman inside

    Look in the mirror, even with a broken heart I'm fine
    Keep on pushing, getting closer to peace of mind.
    Look in the mirror, even with a broken heart I'm fine
    Living is so sweet now with Superman inside Writer/s: DOYLE BRAMHALL, ERIC PATRICK CLAPTON, SUSANNAH MELVOIN

  • Maciej from Warsaw, PolandActually it was Doyle Bramhall II and his wife - Susannah Melvoin who wrote this song for Mr. Clapton. DB II is a famous texas guitarist (he is left-handed, but plays on guitar which is strung normally, so the bass strings are down!). DB II is a son of DB, who has played on drums with Stevie Ray Vaughan. DB II played on Roger Waters (post - Pink Floyd) live album: "In the flesh", and Clapton's albums: Reptile, Sessions for Robert J., Road to Escondido. He toured with Mr. Clapton in 2006/7. Now he is a second guitarist in Mr. Clapton's band!!
  • Dan from New York, NyDoyle Bramhall is now part of Clapton's band. He's very talented. Also plays backwards, which i find facinating.
  • Dan from New York, NyBefore someone makes a stink, i do mean backwards. I'm aware he's left handed, but he also strings backwards, with the lowest strings at the bottom instead of top.
