i wrote this song in thunder bay. my brother really likes it -probably because of the superman reference...


i always thought you had a certain grace
like you could be a hero if you wanted to.
it was written there all over your face
and when i saw, i wanted to be a hero too.
with an elegance that you can’t fake.
a gift that no one can take from you.
if you would be what you could be.

you know ability alone is not half enough.
required effort allows you to rise above.
in blue tights + red cape like superman,
i stand on a ledge and wonder if i can
step off and take flight,
float upon a ray of light
that shines down on me.
(my graceful hero always leaves).
feel the light on my freefall shine
as i join the skyline..
