Superhero (8 y.o. Jake)

Story Behind The Song

This song was written for Jake who is battling with cerebral palsy - and winning. As Jake told us, the kids at school would poke fun at him for being slower than the others - we thought he should have a way to get back at them. Hence Superhero was born.

You think I?, too slow for ya
But I? never out of time
You think I?m too much for ya
As if it was a crime

Too different - Odd one out
Eccentric - ain?t no doubt
That?s a compliment coming from a zero
Cos next to you I?m a superhero

Be my inspiration
Be a friend of mine
You can be a hero
But you gotta find a way to shine

I?m turbocharged
I?m the main man
I?m larger than life
Nobody knows who I really am

You can count on me - The best of me
You can check me out - But I?m not what I appear to be
I?m right out there - And it?s not just for show
I?m giving it all - Like a superhero

Be my inspiration?

I have found a way to log into my energy
And I can demonstrate it - show you what I mean
Let me do my thing and be exactly what I wanna be
I?ll get you to imagine me the way a hero ought to be

You know I?m the one
Time that you believed
The superhero strength
And the power I received

It?s not a mere illusion
It?s not a make-believe
Time you understood
The superhjero thing in me

Be my inspiration?
