You Are Here Alan Gillies' House of Music
NO SUPERHERO
words & music by Alan Gillies
Once upon a time, not so long ago,
A familiar story, one that we all know.
A strange situation, chilling to the bone.
Against overwhelming odds, one man stands alone.

But he's no superhero
No, he's just a simple man
Maybe he can't save the world,
But he's doing the best he can...

Villains of all shapes and sizes, hide behind every turn,
Seems he's always putting out fires, sometimes he'd like to let 'em all burn.
But he knows that with any power, comes responsibility.
Still, as the calls come every hour, he wishes they'd just let him be.

Because he's no superhero
No, he's just a simple man.
Maybe he can't save the world,
But he's doing the best he can.

He's used to a web of lies,
Fought the devil in disguise,
Watched his enemies drop like flies,
And lived to fight again;

He cries, "I'm no superhero,
No, I'm just a simple man.
I don't know if I can save the world,
But I'm doing the best I can.
I'm no superhero,
There's nothing special about me.
But I'll still make a difference yet,
even if no one else can see.

I'm no superhero..."
