Lyrics:

I was lightning fast and fearless
Ten feet tall and redwood strong
I was smart as Albert Einstein
I never got the answers wrong

Just like tarnished silver
Young wonder turns to doubt
You watch your kids get older
And suddenly they figure it all out

CHORUS
Look at me then
Wasn't I something
If only for a little while
Back when I was Superman
When I was Superman
In the eyes of a child

So I hung up my cape for good
Once they exposed me as a fraud
Their dad used to be invincible
Now they know I?m vulnerable and flawed

CHORUS
Look at me then
Wasn't I something
If only for a little while
Back when I was Superman
When I was Superman
In the eyes of a child

I can?t stop the Earth?s rotation
I know it?s part of some design
But when you're Superman
The only kryptonite is time

We all let go of our heroes
We all pass the torch along
That cape is old and tattered now
But every now and then I try it on

CHORUS
Look at me then
Wasn't I something
If only for a little while
Back when I was Superman
When I was Superman
In the eyes of a child
