Be My Super Hero


Author Comments

This is the first song on my 25 song album (digital & printed) called "The Hero Within". I released this puppy earlier this year.

The whole album is filled with songs about becoming a hero for yourself - - along with some fan favorites.

Big THANK YOU to all of my Patrons on patreon.com/hania for your ongoing support! Also, a huge high five to Patrick who voiced the "Hero" in this song. Really drove the song home, in my opinion.
Here are the lyrics for this track:

My Super Hero lingers in my hall
He's always leaning up against my wall
I ask politely if he's going to stay
He doesn't speak he only stares and never goes away

My Super Hero lingers all alone
Maybe he flies away when I'm not home, who knows?
I just don't get why he's always around
I live a life that keeps me pretty healthy, safe and sound

My Super Hero never says his name
He stands there smiling, it's always the same
By now it's normal, he's just like a chair...
He's so important but I sometimes forget he's there

"Do something, Super Hero with no name!"
He shakes his head no, he shakes his head no
"Why are you here? What do you stand to gain?"
"Why do you linger so? Why do you linger so?"

My Super Hero perks his ears and frowns
He takes a knee and puts his head upon the ground
His smile erases from his gentle face
He looks at me, holds out his hand and says "Get in this space!"

And so we fly - this happens way too fast
Trying to grasp the moment as it passed
We land as quickly as we'd taken off
(It's so confusing, try keep up because it doesn't stop)

A battle rages right outside the door
I hear My Hero scream to show him more
And there I am surrounded by these beasts
My Hero fighting as I'm frozen he yells at me...

"DO SOMETHING! Girl who never says her name"
I shake my head no, I just can't let it go
"Why am I here? What do we stand to gain? Why am I frozen so?"
I need to just let go and "DO SOMETHING!"

Blood and tears, he yells at me!

"Super Hero! Be my Super Hero! We are here, pick up a sword and swing. Super Hero! Be my Super Hero!!"

"Be my..."

"Be my..."


Be my... be my... "SHOW ME MORE!"

Super Hero be my Super Hero! Super Hero be my Super Hero! (SHOW ME MORE!) We are here! Pick up a sword and swing. Super Hero be my Super Hero!

The track is 4:34 and I wanted to start it off nice and slow to represent the mundane way of life with this weird superhero character just lingering around a house.

I actually find it kind of hilarious thinking about just some dude in tights and a cape being part of the furniture.

Heh, anyway, as the song progresses, I wanted to introduce an element of danger to the girl character, caused by her hero. It represents the need to face some fears sometimes, even though it's not by choice. However, she fights against it - being a lil' bitch imo - for the first while.

As most self realization stories go, she wakes up when she sees her bleeding hero screaming for help. Her inner strength comes through and she battles triumphantly to his side where they can be each other's hero.

And that's my thought behind this track. :) If you have a different interpretation, sweet! I love it when people create their own stories to my music.

If you want to support my music and help keep the lights on, go support me on www.Patreon.com/Hania where you can download this song immediately, as well as all the other new tracks I've released for my loyal Patrons!

I release a new song every single month as part of the monthly reward for Patrons on there... regardless, it's worth looking into if you'd like to support his little singer/songwriter. :D

This is simply amazing!

I miss you so much on here. Again what an awesome song. I love that your songs tend to have a story or if they don't (Haru song) you can easily create one. I really like the music and the singing, and way better than any of the music that is out now.

This was a great song. I felt it could be the caption song for most of the Comic-Con productions that have been showcased in the past year and a half.

hania responds:

I wish it was!

Years passed and I still listen to your songs. Your creations accompanied me while growing up and now I'm an adult, heh.
Just wanted to say I love what you do.

I could seriously listen to this song all day. Lovely voice and great instrumental; Everything just sounds right. Straight into my Spotify playlist. Great job!

hania responds:

Thank you! :D Super glad you like it! My next album "WANTED: Vigilante" has more songs along this line, look out for it in the new year!
