Lyrics

Yeah yeah
Yeah yeah
Yeah
You were smiling by my table
Had to call up everyone that day
A beautiful mind and body
What a happy ending I see
My mind had been enabled
In the memory you overflowed
Want to be your superhero
Even if I tumble fall

I’m okay
You have that effect on me
But I need you desperately
You know I need you desperately

Brick or stone cannot hurt me
Madmen around the city go
They attack I’ll bring them down
Making their chances super low
Oh my my, pretty navel
Dimple cheek, a face I adore
Want to be your superhero
Fallin’ from a running horse

I’m okay
You have that effect on me
But I need you desperately
You know I need you desperately

I oh, I
Hold to that illusion
I oh, I
I’m not your average guy

Other guys
They won’t dare to
Join the line
In order you peck
When I introduce me to you
My face had turned to super red
Your steady
Beck and call boy
Playing on the piano
Wanna be your superhero
not afraid to tumble fall

I’m okay
You have that effect on me
But I need you desperately
You know I need you desperately

Want to be your superhero
Yeah I want to be your superhero
I want to be your superhero
Oh I want to be your superhero
Oh yeah
Oh yeah
Oh yeah
