  1. Like Superman

From the recording Travel Back In Time

The inspiration for this song came from Bob Carlisle’s Butterfly Kisses (yes, I’m old). I loved the wonderful relationship between a dad and his daughter expressed in that song. With Like Superman, I tried to put into words how I would relate to my daughter if I were a father to one. Little did I know then that some fifteen years later I would be a father to not just one but four wonderful daughters. Guess who they call upon when they have night terrors?

Lyrics

Put his girl to bed
On his way to leave the room
When she says:
Daddy I’m afraid of the dark
Don’t leave me
Don’t leave me here alone
He turns to her to say:
Baby don’t you know
I’m always in your heart

Never fear when I’m not around you
Don’t feel despair when I’m out of sight
‘Cause in our hearts we stay connected
I can feel you everywhere
And when you need me
I’ll come flying like superman
Like superman

He is in New York
She in cold Amsterdam
On the phone they talk
About those little things
Daddy I’m so alone
When will you come home?

Never fear when I’m not around you
Don’t feel despair when I’m out of sight
‘Cause in our hearts we stay connected
I can feel you everywhere
And when you need me
I’ll come flying like superman
Like superman

(solo)

Never fear when I’m not around you
Don’t feel despair when I’m out of sight
‘Cause in our hearts we stay connected
I can feel you everywhere
And when you need me
I’ll come flying like superman
Like superman
