I like the music, and a lot of the lyrics, but it's basically not totally about Superman IMO.

So, read these lyrics & hear the tune here


& tell me what ya think:

Well I took a flight around the world to ease my troubled mind
I left my duty lying somewhere in the sands of time
But I've watched the world change from the dark side of the moon
I feel there is nothing I need do, yeah...

I watched myself change on the dark side of the moon
After all I knew it had to be something to do with you
I really don't mind what happens now and then
As long as you'll be my friend to the end

If I go crazy then will you still call me Superman?
If I'm alive and well, will you be there holding my hand?
I'll not keep you by my side with my superhuman might
Gold Kryptonite

You called me strong, I will be weak
But still my secrets you will keep
You took for granted all the times
I never let you down

You stumbled in and bumped your head
If not for me then you'd be dead
I've picked you up and flown you back to solid ground

If I go crazy then will you still call me Superman?
If I'm alive and well, will you be there holding my hand?
I'll not keep you by my side with my superhuman might
Gold Kryptonite

If I go crazy then will you still call me Superman?
If I'm alive and well, will you be there holding my hand?
I'll not keep you by my side with my superhuman might
Gold Kryptonite, yeah


If I go crazy then will you still call me Superman?
If I'm alive and well, will you be there holding my hand?
I'll not keep you by my side with my superhuman might
Gold Kryptonite

Firstly, let me thank you for reminding me of a song that I really like but for some reason haven't thought of in years. I think your modest revisions work well to make this ditty more Superman-specific, but a couple of (perhaps stupid) questions: Who exactly is Supes singing to? Humanity at large? Lois? Jimmy? Is he contemplating killing himself outright, or just his powers? And is there supposed to be a sort of "Checkers speech" you-won't-have-me- to-kick-around-anymore tone to the song?

I was aiming at his singing to Lois after the world changed enough for him not to be quite so needed. See, she's aging, and he not so much. Gold Kryptonite would remove his powers & make him human, but would she love him as 'Superman' anymore after...?

Methinks you are taking what was intended as metaphor as waaaaay too literal.

"Goram it kid, let's frak this thing and go home! Engage!"
