2.1 Broken Wings

Verse 1

The bird became bigger and stronger

He was able to fly higher and longer

But one day he came to a thunderstorm

So swept away that he forgot where he came from


So the bird met death

A first time

He took him his breath

and the sunshine

broke him his wings

that he was nothing

but flesh, bone and skins


The bird with broken wings

Knows that death always wins

He’s frightened of the end

no way to defend

Verse 2

Every beat of its wings was wasted power

the wind tore him further and further

till he couldn’t any more and fell down

he cried to the sky but there is no help to be found


The cloudy day became a dark night

he was still on the ground with the end in sight

but still he possesses a will to live

so he raised himself up again, up on his feet

instead of flying he learnt how to walk

he does what he says when others just talk
