Someday I hope to be
Someone that somebody needs

Even if it's just for a short while
I'd find it a good a reason as any
To go that extra mile

 I want to be a hero
Somebody's superman
The one thing people reach for
When they need a helping hand

Losing purpose is a nightmare come true
When I realize
I don't mean as much as I think I do

My ego was growing
My head inflated
Till somebody poked their needle
And watched me as I deflated

Maybe it's just as it should be
The world not needing me
Maybe it's written in stone
That I'm the definition of lonely

Well, it's just as well
But I won't give up yet
I refuse to go down without a fight
I'll be something they won't forget

And when I'm gone
They'll think of me then
Something that was useful
Way back when

Until that day
I guess I'll just go ahead and say
That I'm here for now
I'll be someone someday
Once I figure out how

I think you did a wonderful job with this. It always feels good to be there for somebody when they need you.
