VERSE 1: 
I always wanted a red cape on my back
I always wanted to best in my pack
I always wanted to be known to be good
To be the hero of my own hood
If I could just fly, I could save everyone
Stop all the wars, so nobody’s gotta run
All the killing all the crimes
pain and suffering,
its getting tougher to be buffered from it all
are we gonna make it through?
is he gonna fly back in
cuz if he don’t come right now
I don’t think good will win
Time is running out
Do we wanna wait for him
Or is it our time now
To bring the good back in

CHORUS 1: 
We don’t have to leap tall buildings
In a single bound
Here’s a lot of good that we can do
Standing on the ground
We don’t need a jet pack suit
To take us to the clouds
Its up to me and you,
Right here, right now
SuperHero
SuperHero
SuperHero
SuperHero

VERSE 2: 
The world is full of so much pain
And though I can’t fly
I can do my little part here
Before I die, yeh
I may not win the nobel prize
But at least I can try
To be, a little more kind,
Spend a little more time
It might change one life, yeh..
Like…Givin a hug when somebody is down and
Feeding a soul, when there’s nobody around and
Small things that can change the sound
And the vibe of the spirit that can change a town  and
Started small, Now its touched a crowd and
The crowd is growing, now the word is out-
that if we all do our parts we can touch the clouds
without a cape and a mask, we can touch the clouds, yup!

CHORUS 2: 
We don’t have to leap tall buildings
In a single bound
Here’s a lot of good that we can do
Standing on the ground
We don’t need a jet pack suit
To take us to the clouds
Its up to me and you,
Right here, right now
SuperHero
SuperHero
SuperHero

BRIDGE: 
Yeh, Its The smallest things that make a difference
And all the power’s locked within us
All we gotta do is find the key, and-
Turn the latch and set it free, yeh
We don’t needa be fast and strong, cuz-
A kind word can go a long way
Help someone whose faith is gone
-To get-back-up and carry on, maybe-
Its too hard to understand, think its –
Too much for us to handle, but –
I promise you that you can, cuz –
You don’t need to be superman

CHORUS 3: 
We don’t have to leap tall buildings
In a single bound
Here’s a lot of good that we can do
Standing on the ground
We don’t need a jet pack suit
To take us to the clouds
Its up to me and you,
Right here, right now
SuperHero

  • From an Ivy League education to Wall street to fame and fortune as a MTV Rap star, at some point along Nimo's journey he realized that we was walking a path of suffering and that the only path to light was through selfless service to others and his own internal purification. For the past 10 years Nimo has been serving and working with the underprivileged communities in the Gandhi Ashram in India. Most recently Nimo has reconnected to his roots of music and is offering this gift of love, peace and oneness through his songs: an offering he calls "Empty Hands Music". Nimo chose the title 'Empty Hands', because of the profound wisdom we all can gain when we understand this deeper truth: that we arrive on this planet empty handed and we will all soon leave empty handed. So then, how and in what spirit do we want to spend the time in between? (Editors Note: For two years Nimo has joined the team of Common Bond Institute in Jordan, bringing his musical gifts of hope, restoration, and resilience to refugee children and their families served by CBI's trauma healing programs.) -- Email: nimo.patel@gmail.com / Web: https://www.emptyhandsmusic.org/

  • Orange County, California-based Singer/Songwriter, Producer and Humanitarian DANIEL NAHMOD (\pronounced Nay-mod‚) has performed his profound, heart-opening original music for over one million people in 45 U.S. states and Canada since beginning his music career in 1999... selling 110,000 CDs (and 10,000 printed songbooks!) to date and receiving literally thousands of standing ovations along the way. His songs are recorded and performed all over the world on a weekly basis. Recent media appearances of Daniel's music include Saturday Night Live, The Voice, American Idol, The Super Bowl, and the Today Show. Daniel's poetic and evocative message of peace, love and compassion across all nations, cultures and faiths has found overwhelming acceptance wherever he has performed. He was a recent keynote performer at the Parliament of World Religions in Toronto in 2018 with his friend and collaborator Nimo (www.emptyhandsmusic.com), and has been featured on numerous cable and radio broadcasts in over 90 countries; at cultural festivals, interfaith and environmental fairs, workshops and conferences, youth rallies, 9/11 services; and as a keynote musical presenter at benefits for such organizations as Habitat For Humanity, Operation USA, Achievable and Anti-Defamation League. Daniel has also performed for various U.S. governors and mayors, and for congressmen in Washington, D.C. Daniel has presented his spectacular music and message for nearly all of the world's major faiths, including Christian, Catholic, Muslim, Hindu, Buddhist, Jewish, Bahai, and Mormon audiences, and has worked with some of the most influential and brilliant speakers and leaders in the world --- including Jean Houston, Marianne Williamson ("A Return To Love"), Deepak Chopra ("Seven Spiritual Laws of Success"), Mark Victor Hansen ("Chicken Soup For The Soul"), Arun Gandhi (grandson of Mahatma Gandhi), Yolanda King (daughter of Martin Luther King Jr.), Rhonda Britten (of NBC's "Starting Over"), and Neale Donald Walsch ("Conversations With God"). In response to Hurricane Katrina, Daniel visited the Houston Astrodome for two days, walking amongst the survivors talking, shaking hands and singing songs. Following late 2004's humanitarian crisis in Asia, Daniel organized, produced and hosted two soul-stirring benefit concerts, raising over $15,000 for Operation USA, a Los Angeles-based relief agency working in Indonesia and Sri Lanka. And in 2000, he was nominated as National Hospital Volunteer Of The Year for his musical work at Cedars Sinai Hospital in Los Angeles. -- Email: Contact@DanielNahmod.com / Web: http://www.danielnahmod.com/music.html
