lyrics

He was a gentle and a careless happy kid.

Fell in love with comic books.

Looking for the hero that he never was and never will be.

He was craving for that look.



He met her on the street in Belfast in the spring.

Looking for words in her eyes.

Don’t know how he got her to love him, but she did until she broke him and she broke him many times.



He said “I’m Batman and I cannot be your lover, for the secrets and the burdens that I bear.

You can’t love, nor can I love another, for the spiked ears and the black cape that I wear.”



Now every time he meets a woman, he thinks too much and loves too less.

He’s not the hero that reads about in all these comic books and so he does what he thinks best.

He says “You are my Gotham City. Just light a sign for me to see.

I will be there when you need me but right now I cannot stay. Let go my hand and let me free.



There are some people in your life who change you for the better.

There are some people in your life who make you worse.

about

Ben Hermanski Bochum, Germany

Ben likes to hold on to moments and give them away on stage. To you.
In his songs and the stories that he tells.

Ben Hermanski is an observer, a sensitive writer. A finder of melodies both engaging, catchy and familiar; a teller of stories both true and remote at the same time.

He keeps his eyes closed on stage, because these moments are for giving. To you.
