FIX YOUR WINGS

‚Äč

I found a bird with broken wings

Tried my best to make her smile

And when I woke up in the morning

She was singing right outside

Flapping all her feathers

Chirping out her tune

And when I wrapped my wings around hers

There was nothing I could do

 

And through those years we spent together

Since, I’ve learned you cannot tell a

Bird with broken wings to fly

 

So I set off on my own

Walked until I could not go

On but then I saw that I was on a big plateau

Had to keep on moving

Left foot after right

Eyes out for the birds and so a different nest each night

And all those years I swore

That I would stop trying so hard

To find a bird with broken wings to fly

 

Oh my

 

I found that nimble is the way to walk when at first alone

A little bit of consolation you’ll be strutting off on your own

Stride a few more miles with your eyes on the prize

And don’t look down, don’t look now, you are flying, you are flying

You are flying

And so you’ll know

Without trying

You were meant to grow

You were crying

For a sight unseen

Come clean, come clean

And fix your wings

 

I found a bird with broken wings

There could be no way this time

But when I woke up in the morning

She was looking in my eyes

Ruffling my feathers

Questioning my tune

And when I wrapped my wings around her

There was nothing I could do

And through this time we’ve spent together

Since, I’ve learned you cannot tell a

Bird with broken wings to fly

 

But she caught a drift one day

I was standing ‘cross the way

Thought to help her as she stumbled

But I stayed away

She just kept on moving

Left wing after right

Eyes up towards the sky

And soon she began to rise

And through these years I swear that I could

Not quite be prepared to find a

Bird with broken wings to fly

Oh my

 

But I’ve found that nimble is the way to walk when at first alone

A little bit of consolation you’ll be strutting off on your own

Stride a few more miles with your eyes on the prize

And don’t look down, don’t look now, you are flying, you are flying

You are flying

And so you’ll know

Without trying

You were meant to grow

You were crying

For a sight unseen

Come clean, come clean

And fix your wings
