“Waiting for Superman” by Daughtry
This song is about a guy who is unappreciated for saving people’s lives. This song has some very inspiring lyrics such as
“She’s talking to angels counting the stars
she’s waiting for superman to pick her up in his arms”.
Those lyrics mean that she’s waiting for a guy to come save her. She believes in him and is waiting for him to come save her.
Daughtry was formed by singer Chris Daughtry. The band is very popular. They have very inspiring lyrics about life events, for example the song “September”. In this song, the band talks about how summer will never be the same heading towards the end of it. It talks about the memories they had leading up to September.
“Of all the things I remember
summer never looked the same
The years go by and time just seems to fly by
but the memories still remain
In the middle of September
We’d still play out in the rain
Nothing to lose but everyting to gain
Reflecting now on how things could’ve been…it was worth it in the end.”
I personally understand the feelings of this band. They make very inspirational music and Daughtry is for people who have memories or feel very secure. Just listen to them. They’ve got soft songs and all their songs are about past memories or life events that affect the generation today.
