Superhero Me – Science of the Lamps
The super hero me looks great in lycra
She’s confident and knows just what to do
She wows them all with style, and flare and beauty
with a brilliant mind and patient kindness too
She doesn’t spend time focusing on negatives
there’s no excuses — only way is up
She flies away all fabulous and glowing
how can I make the alias shut up?!
Oh oh oh (Chorus)
With glasses on no one recognizes her
labelled as “before” in a fashion mag
Her skies are grey and no one really likes her
so she might just hang around in rags
My kryptonite is surely negativity
a self fulfilling prophecy of doom
When life feels so much better when I’m flying
cause super Kaya’s just immune to gloom
Oh oh oh (Chorus)
Ok I don’t believe in super powers
I just want to have a super day
A whole day allowing me to flower
and shine in my own peculiar way
No more fear of their rejection
Cause no one would reject a super me?!
I need to learn to share affection
For this me — the me I want to be..
