​Hit the Ground (Superman)

This song is by The Big Pink and appears on the album Future This (2012).

Flying high at speed of sound
On the night bus, heading out
I'll call you now
We'll meet on the streets, and we'll run around
Leave everyone behind
The name-droppers and the unkinds
And we'll meet our friends
Blue plastic bags, full of cans

Like hooded ghosts, we don't make a sound
Feel the earth pull us, hand in hand
But if I fall off this cloud
If I fall off, oh Superman
Oh Superman, I don't wanna hit the ground

I don't wanna hit the ground
I don't wanna hit the ground
Oh Superman
Oh Superman, oh no

Feel my guilt when the light pulls in fast
Hopes for the days are gone, and the hour's passed
Not a fighting chance
Comic ideas of the future
How to jump home now, with a single bounce
And we'll laugh out loud

Like hooded ghosts, we don't make a sound
Feel the earth pull us, hand in hand
But if I fall off this cloud
If I fall off, oh Superman
Oh Superman, I don't wanna hit the ground

I don't wanna hit the ground
I don't wanna hit the ground
Oh Superman
Oh Superman, oh no

I don't ever wanna stop
You could not have made it up
Who'll catch me when I drop?
And stop me falling
Is this every gonna stop
Can you catch me when I drop?
I know there'll never be no Superman

Like hooded ghosts, we don't make a sound
Feel the earth pull us, hand in hand
But if I fall off this cloud
If I fall off, oh Superman
Oh Superman, I don't wanna hit the ground

I don't wanna hit the ground
I don't wanna hit the ground
Oh Superman
Oh Superman, oh no
