I'm Not A Super Hero

I'm not a super hero, although I try.
I don't have a cape and I know I can't fly.  
I'm a little bit lost and a little bit bent.  
I can't account for the ways that my timeís spent.  
I'm a little bit lonely, but I'll never tell...  
I'm a little bit worried that I'm going to hell.  
This life, it is odd, but never is it even.  
For all that I try, someone's always leaving.  
I'm a little bit shaky, I'm a little bit scared.  
Even without the bottle, I'm a little impaired.  
I'm not a super hero, and I know I'm no savior.  
If there is a God, I'm sure he owes me a favour.  
I don't have a cape, and if I did I'd get tangled.
Fall down some stairs and get myself mangled.  
Iím a little bit lost but I donít mind the road trip.  
Iím a little bit bent and I know I need to get a grip.  
Iím a little bit lonely, but I donít mind the ride.  
Iím a little bit worried, and those things I hide.  
This life, it keeps moving, and itís a little bit shaky.
Some days I get scared that it just might break me.  
Iím not a super hero, not a soul can I save  
I hide all my fear, but I am not really brave
I donít have a cape to wear out with pride
Iím a little too human, if in you I can confide
I get a little too down, I get a little too high  
I get a little mental and think I can fly
And then the fall hits and I realise this is me
Iím not close to perfect and I will never be  
Iím not a super hero, but my heart still can love  
Iím not a super hero, and itís not enoughÖ
