From the album The Possibility of Disaster EP
Written by Mark Croft
Hold on tight,
Hold on tight I'm coming baby
There's no need to run and hide
It's a trick of light
Flickering in distant shadows
Cast in complicated times
But there's a man here
Who's not some crazed crusader hiding in the crowd
Who'll be the one to save you when there's no more superheroes around
I don't like heights
I got no cape upon my back
And I'm sure these pants don't fit too tight
And there's no disguise
To hide my face beneath a mask
So you can look me right straight in the eyes.
So go on, I’ll search the darkest corners of this town
And be the one to save you when there’s no more superheroes around.
Well I'll keep my motor running For when your backs against the wall
And I'll keep my eyes up to the sky Just in case you ever call
I know you’re not the kind of girl to come crying save me please.
But I can see you hanging on the edge of some disastrous possibilities
So when the earth starts quaking
And the room starts shaking
And the ground starts breaking underneath your feet.
Evil’s on the rise And I know your terrified
Because you’re headed for catastrophe
I know it seems lately
Things have been crazy
But I’ll help you land safely on your feet…your own two feet.
So hold on tight,
Hold on tight I’m coming baby
Though it might be suicide.
I’m no white knight
And I’m might be late into the battle
But it’s on the metro bus I ride
So hold on And surf this silver lining when you're down
Cause I'll be the one to save you when there's no more superheroes around
I'll be the one to save you when there's no more superheroes around
