The song that proves capes and masks can never disguise true love for long.

The Life of a Comic Book Hero
© 1998 Bennett Neuhauser. All rights reserved. BMI®.
Bennett Neuhauser is a.k.a .Ben Sage

I’m a happy, normal guy, except when you come walkin’ by
Then I feel so miserable, the real me turns invisible

I make like a man of steel, so you won’t know how weak I feel
’Cause I’m afraid you’ll never see my secret true identity

It’s the life of a comic book hero
It’s the life of a comic book hero

I’d like to show you who I am, and just exactly why I’m here
I’ll only say, if you need love, you have nothing more to fear

It’s the life of a comic book hero (Comic, comic, comic book hero)
It’s the life of a comic book hero

Up, up and away ...! [Instrumental break] (Comic, comic, comic book hero)

I know it’s quite a lot to ask, to see the man behind the mask
But once you look past my disguise, you’ll find your hero waiting in my eyes

It’s the life of a comic book hero (Comic, comic, comic book hero)
It’s the life of a comic book hero

Maybe I’m too mild mannered to show up on your romance scanners
But once you give these lips a try, you’ll believe that you can fly

It’s the life of a comic book hero (Comic, comic, comic book hero)
It’s the life of a comic book hero

It’s the life ... (Comic, comic, comic book hero)
It’s the life ... (Comic, comic, comic book hero)
It’s the life of a comic book hero

It’s the life ... (Comic, comic, comic, comic book hero)
It’s the life ... (Comic, comic, comic, comic book hero)
It’s the life of a comic book hero.
