Superman
Ivory Layne Lyrics


(Is it a bird or just a plane
Is it a bird or a plane
Is it a bird or just a plane
Is it a bird or a plane)

What happened to the boy I knew?
He promised me his love was true
Supposed to be a man
But his little plan had fell through

The one who used to tell me jokes
Was popular with all my folks
Had everybody fooled ‘cause he was so cool
Now it's up in smoke

What happened to my childhood dream
Your language I no longer speak
How come you never talk to me?
My telephone never rings

I wish I'd known that you would mean
To let me go,
I was oblivious
You were up on a pedestal
And I could not ring you in

But you fell short
'Cause you needed lungs to breath
And you can't fly
Look with eyes like laser beams
And I was blind for wanting you to rescue me
But you were caught in the clouds

And I was left on the ground

(Is it a bird or just a plane
Is it a bird or a plane
Is it a bird or just a plane
Is it a bird or a plane)

What happened to the boy I knew
The one I thought had hung the moon
Supposed he was a man
But one stroke of his hand
And I'm painted blue

What happened to my childhood dream
Your language I no longer speak
How come you never talk to me?
And my telephone never rings

I wish I'd known that you would mean
To let me go,
I was oblivious
You were up on a pedestal
And I could not ring you in

But you fell short
'Cause you needed lungs to breath
And you can't fly
Look with eyes like laser beams
And I was blind for wanting you to rescue me
But you were caught in the clouds
Oh,
You fell short
'Cause you needed lungs to breath
And you can't fly
Look with eyes like laser beams
And I was blind for wanting you to rescue me
But you were caught in the clouds

You can't read the thoughts
That form inside my head
And you aren't strong enough
To save my soul from dead
Then you can't keep my heart
From being ripped to shreds

I was wrong to alter reality
I made you some
Superman you couldn't be
All this time, oh, I truly did believe
That you got caught in the clouds

I wish you'd known that I would mean
To fall in love
Were you oblivious?
You were high in the atmosphere
I disappear below

But you fell short
'Cause you needed lungs to breath
And you can't fly
Look with eyes like laser beams
And I was blind for wanting you to rescue me
But you were caught in the clouds
Oh,
You fell short
'Cause you needed lungs to breath
And you can't fly
Look with eyes like laser beams
And I was blind for wanting you to rescue me
But you were caught in the clouds
Oh

You got caught in the clouds, oh

And I don't know myself now, no

Is it a bird or just a plane
Is it a bird or a plane
Is it a bird or just a plane
Is it a bird or a plane

This showed up on my Spotify Discover Weekly thing and now I listen to it everyday. It's a shame no one really knows about it.

Nova Is Tired

Megan Ross

@Dayne Graves huh. It disappeared a while ago but they must have put it back or something. I don't know. I'm glad it's there now though.

Dayne Graves

It's currently on Spotify.... At least, that's how I found it a couple weeks ago, and can still listen to it.

Haley Allen

@Megan Ross I was so disappointed when I saw it wasn’t on there anymore. I hope she puts it back eventually.

Megan Ross

It's not on Spotify anymore and I am Greatly Disappointed. This has been on one of my playlists for a while now.

MrUltrapresident

I agree so much

Massiel Veloz

Am I the only one who thinks that this song is powerful? I don't know how to describe it but this is perfect.

Rob Ramsey

The greatest, most romantically constructed lyrics on over expectation ever written. Beautifully sung, with such musicality and finesse.
