Lyrics

Ain't looking for stars anymore

Ain't searching for a pot of gold

I ain't looking for any more rainbows

Or the things I can't hold. 

Ain't looking for Superman

or The Lone Ranger

Ain't looking for any more heroes

Acting like tall dark strangers.

 

Tired of trusting everyone

Picking up the pieces

Fall for most anything

Cause I want to believe 'em.

But people do change

For the good or bad

I'm not sure which phase

You happen to be at. 

 

Big white hat

Silver six-gun

Riding in

On a cloud of dust.

Last of the cowboys

Fighting that crime

Saving the whole world

One town at a time.

 

 

Growing up on tv

In the early sixties

Every story had an ending

That had a good deed.

Oh, I want to belong

Be a part of someone

Something bigger than me

Than where I come from.

 

Sometimes you reach out

Nothing comes back

Sometimes you want to hurt

But you just can’t.

Ain't the way it's supposed to be

Ain't supposed to be like this

It ain't supposed to be a lot of things

But it just is. 

 

Big red cape

Faster than a speeding train

Leaping tall buildings

Gonna save the day.

But every man's a myth

When he talks about his fights

He falls harder than he lets on

Cause every man's got his Kryptonite.

 

 

Ain't looking for Superman

Or The Lone Ranger

I ain't looking for any more heroes

Acting like tall dark strangers.

Ain't looking for stars anymore

Ain't searching for a pot of gold

Ain't looking for any more rainbows

Or the things I can't hold. 

Ain't looking for Superman

Or the Red Tornado

Ain't looking heroes...anymore.
