  • Tall, dark, and Superman
    He puts papers in his briefcase and drives away
    To save the world or go to work
    It's the same thing to me
    He's got his mothers eyes, his father's ambition
    I wonder if he knows how much that I miss him
    I hang on every word that you say
    And you smile and say, "How are you?"
    I'll say, "Just fine"
    I always forget to tell you
    I love you, I love you forever

    I watch superman fly away
    You've got a busy day today
    Go save the world, I'll be around
    And I watch superman fly away
    Come back, I'll be with you someday
    I'll be right here on the ground
    When you come back down

    Tall, dark and beautiful
    He's complicated, he's irrational
    But I hope someday you take me away and save the day, yeah
    Something in his deep brown eyes has me singing
    He's not all bad like his reputation
    And I can't hear one single word they said
    And you leave, got places to be and I'll be okay
    I always forget to tell you I love you
    I loved you from the very first day

    I watch superman fly away
    You've got a busy day today
    Go save the world I'll be around
    And I watch superman fly away
    Come back, I'll be with you someday
    I'll be right here on the ground
    When you come back down

    And I watch you fly around the world
    And I hope you don't save some other girl
    Don't forget, don't forget about me
    I'm far away but I'll never let you go
    I'm lovestruck and looking out the window
    Don't forget, don't forget where I'll be

    Right here, wishing the flowers were from you
    Wishing the card was from you
    Wishing the call was from you

    'Cause I've loved you from the very first day

    I watch superman fly away
    You've got a busy day today
    Go save the world, I'll be around
    Forever and ever here
    I watch superman fly away
    I swear, I'll be with you someday
    I'll be right here on the ground
    When you come back down

    La, la, la, la, la, la
    La, la, la, la, la, la
    When you come back down Writer/s: Taylor Swift
