SINGLE PREMIERE: Daughtry – “Waiting For Superman” (+ Lyrics)

It's a yes for "No".

Holding out for a hero.

It’s the single that’s faster than a speeding bullet, more powerful than a locomotive, and able to leap tall buildings in a single bound. Well, maybe it can’t do all these things, but the new single from Daughtry is still pretty good. With a more electro-pop sound, “Superman” is catchy and relatable to a female audience. Look for the single to carry the band back onto the airwaves just in time to save the day. “Waiting For Superman” is the leadoff single from a forthcoming studio album from the band, Baptized, which is out on November 19. Enjoy!

Listen to “Waiting For Superman”. / Purchase “Waiting For Superman” on iTunes.

“WAITING FOR SUPERMAN”

(Let me know if there are any errors below. Thanks!)

[Verse 1]
She’s watching the taxi driver, he pulls away
She’s been locked up inside her apartment a hundred days

[Bridge]
She says, “Yeah, he’s still coming, just a little bit late
He got stuck at the laundromat washing his cape”
She’s just watching the clouds roll by and they spell her name like Lois Lane
And she smiles, oh the way she smiles

[Chorus]
She’s talking to angels, counting the stars
Making a wish on a passing car
She’s dancing with strangers, falling apart
Waiting for Superman to pick her up
In his arms (x2)
Waiting for Superman

[Verse 2]
She’s out on the corner trying to catch a glimpse, nothing’s making sense
She’s been chasing an answer, a sign lost in the abyss, this Metropolis

[Bridge 2]
She says, “Yeah, he’s still coming, just a little bit late
He got stuck at the Five and Dime saving the day”
She says, “If life was a movie, then it wouldn’t end like this
Left without a kiss”
Still, she smiles, the way she smiles, yeah

[Chorus]
She’s talking to angels, she’s counting the stars
Making a wish on a passing car
She’s dancing with strangers, she’s falling apart
Waiting for Superman to pick her up
In his arms (x2)
She’s waiting for Superman

[Middle 8]
To lift her up and take her anywhere
Show her love and climbing through the air
Save her now before it’s too late tonight
Oh, like a speeding light
And she smiles

[Chorus]
She’s talking to angels, she’s counting the stars
Making a wish on a passing car
She’s dancing with strangers, she’s falling apart
Waiting for Superman to pick her up
In his arms (x2)
She’s waiting for Superman

To lift her up and take her anywhere
Show her love and climbing through the air
Save her now before it’s too late tonight
She’s waiting for Superman

  1. I haven’t heard anything from Daughtry that I haven’t liked.

    I love this song! I just heard it for the first time today, and I loved it so much I bought it from iTunes almost right away! I can definitely relate to it, and I don’t think it really hurts Chris Daughtry to do different genres of music since he has a great voice for anything.
