“I think every dad probably feels this way about their kids: No matter how old they get or how young they are, you’re always going to be there to fight for them, and you’re always going to be there to pick them up when they fall down,” he explained. “‘Waiting For Superman’ is not necessarily about a superhero, but it’s definitely using that archetype as a metaphor for waiting for that person to be what you need them to be — you know, to step up and be that strength. My wife and my daughter were certainly my muses for the lyrical content of that song.”
