Waiting For Superman Lyrics

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

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...

    Its about a girl who lost her hero, like a father, and needs someone to show her to be strong again, and to save her from the pain. "Locked in her apartment for 100 days," is a coping mechanism and "Talking with angels" is her trying to communicate with him.

    It's a religious interpretation we are all waiting for the second return to save us the album is called baptized and Daughtry is a Christian.

    I personally believed it was about a women who had just lost her superman and is in denial about losing the perfect person she just had saying "he's at the laundromat", and In turn turning suicidel due to her loss - this is expressed with the "talking to angels line"

    I've always thought That this song was about a young girl with cancer is trying to make everyone feel special while she's still alive by dancing with them, talking to angels, making wishes with passing cars, and waiting for Superman to pick her up, and Superman would be Jesus and she's just waiting for it all to end, and make it worth everything.

    I think it is about a suicidal woman.
    Of course she is also waiting for the right guy to come and save her from herself but she isn't helping herself, as she was "locked in her apartment for 100 days"
    She is creating silly excuses to why her 'superman' hasn't found her yet, like being "stuck in the laundromat washing his cape"
    Finally she is giving up, as she is "talking to angels"

    I think "dancing with strangers" and "she smiles, oh the way she smiles" is part of her facade, and "she's falling apart" is also part of her facade, but behind it.

    Why does it not say waiting for superman to save her heart? rhymes a million times better "with shes falling apart" and still retains the superman saving theme. i love the song but that line crashes on my ears every freakin time

    The song is about someone who is waiting for her "superman" to finally rescue her. She wants to find that man to love her like no other. She's waited for a long time for him and in a way when she makes excuses as to why he hasn't shown up yet, it's because she doesn't want to lose faith or hope. Someday he will come.

    I don't think shes waiting for the perfect man i think its about a girl who lost her "superman" suddenly and is wishing he would come back.

    She's waiting for someone to save her from the state of mind she is in.

    She's not waiting for perfect man like others say, she's living in her own imagination (if life was a movie) and wants what doesn't exist… No one is good enough for her (locked up inside her apartment for 100 days) but the problem, actually, is she

    The woman he sings about is waiting for superman not literally. She's just waiting for a good guy. Better than what she's known.

    "She's waiting for superman to pick her up " "save her now". She's just waiting to meet the right man.

    What's to really explain the lyrics say it all. This woman is waiting for the perfect man (superman). That man has not entered her life yet but she's ready to find him.
