Daughtry - Waiting For Superman
I think this song is about a girl who is broken. Not one who lost a man, but one is waiting for him to come and save her. Break her out of the apartment she's been in. She keeps telling herself he's coming and that he's just late. She counts her wishes. She won't give up that he is coming to rescue her from herself. She looking for answers but can find them and and she knows he has them. She won't let people know she feels this way. She dancing with strangers, she keeping everyone around her happy while she herself isn't. She has faith in superman that he'll come for her and she awaits that day he does.
Daughtry - Waiting for Superman
When I'm happy,This song is about a young woman, who is patiently waiting for her superman to come along. She has no problem waiting. She doesn't want to fool around with other guys; she wants a serious, happy relationship. Sometimes she falls apart and "dances with strangers", but for the most part she's strong. She wants true love - she wants a ONE AND ONLY. She waits for him patient ily, knowing he'll come along. She knows he'll be worth it. when I'm sad, I think it's about someone who is suicidal after they lost someone really close, their "superman". She keeps waiting for him to come back and to make silly excuses as to why he's not there. "He's at the laundry mat... He's at the give and dime." When he doesn't come back, "she starts talking to angles." AKA becoming suicidal. She wants to see him - she smiles at the thought of being with him in whatever life is after this world. The "Oh, at the speed of light" line at the end means she needs help - fast. Sometimes she dies in my imagination - and smiles before her death, thinking of seeing her superman. Sometimes she lives and smiles at the people who help her.
My interpretation doesn't have to do with a romance, it has to do with a father-daughter relationship. The girl is waiting for her father to "Lift her up" and help guide her through the way of life. She's trying to come up with excuses for her father because she wants to believe that he's still going to come back for her.
I think this song is about a woman/girl who's waiting for someone to come back that isn't. I can't tell if it's her husband, father, son, brother, or lover.The lyric that makes me think this is "She's talking to angels, counting the stars"What other reason would you have to talk to an angel?
I think it might be Daughtry's wife waiting for him to come home. He is supposed to be superman and come and save the day. But instead she has to keep on hoping and be patient until he can arrive. Her friends and family tell her to stop hoping in this broken home, but she only knows she has to wait for him and believe in him. She feels like she is crazy and he is tormented by their situation.

Our family would like to thank you all for the outpouring of love as we grieve the loss of our daughter Hannah. We are awaiting the autopsy results to determine how Hannah sustained the injuries that caused her death. Our hearts are broken.
"Waiting for Superman" is a rock song whose lyrics speak of a girl, who feels alone, and who's been 'locked up in her apartment', waiting for that prince charming, aka. her superman, to come and the two fall in love, and have a happy ever after. 041b061a72
