We believed in love when love wasn't an option
She wanted to give birth, I wanted adoption
After days and days of conversation
We decided to go with fertilization

Then came baby showers and Lamaze classes
2 a.m. phone calls, 1 minute contractions
But then they whisked me away like Brigadoon
No domestic partners in the delivery room

But if I was a superhero, I would break free
Wouldn't need anyone to come and save me
And you couldn't make me feel like I'm crazy
I would see my baby, I would see my baby

And if I was a superhero, I would break free
And I wouldn't be imprisoned wherever you take me
I would change everyone that's trying to change me
I would see my baby, I would see my baby

Life in an occupied land is hard, we pushed harder
Soon to be a mom, him to be a father
Boys with guns at the checkpoint in Rafah
Wouldn't let me pass when I said I need a doctor

I don't know the source of the passport errors
Or how four hours produced a miscarriage
But when it comes to populations to disparage
Gaza's on the list, right below gay marriage

But if I was a superhero, I would break free
Wouldn't need anyone to come and save me
And you couldn't make me feel like I'm crazy
I would see my baby, I would see my baby

And if I was a superhero, I would break free
And I wouldn't be imprisoned wherever you take me
I would change everyone who's trying to change me
I would see my baby, I would see my baby

There's something on my heart
There's someone on my mind
I never would have thought
That I could be so angry
But please give me the patience
Please give me the patience

There's something on my heart
There's someone on my mind
I never would have thought
That I could be so angry
But please give me the patience
Please give me the patience

But if I was a superhero, I would break free
Wouldn't need anyone to come and save me
And you couldn't make me feel like I'm crazy
I would see my baby, I would see my baby

Yeah, if I was a superhero, I would break free
And I wouldn't be imprisoned wherever you take me
I would change everyone who's trying to change me
I would see my baby, I would see my baby

Yeah, if I was a superhero, I would break free
And I wouldn't be imprisoned wherever you take me
I would change everyone who's trying to change me
I would see my baby, I would see my baby
