Broken Wings

Words and Music by Raccoon

as recorded on Loose In The City

 

 

I got two broken wings Ė I canít fly

I lost my directions when I fell from the sky

And I need a place to stop and mend my broken bones

Before I find my way back to my mountain top home

 

Mmmm, itís been a long time since I looked in the eyes of a friend

Mmmm, itís been a long time, time, time - I thought my quest would never end

 

The only way to bring me down is fill me full of holes

But you canít stop my soaring soul

Here I go Ė Flyin' to the sun

But Iím not the only one

Thereís many people there youíve never seen before

You never really cared enough to open up your doors

 

And mighty misty mountain that washed out to the sea

There used to be a mountain here but now thereís just me 

And I got time, time, time, time

You gotta keep on flying high

And I got time, time, time, time

You gotta try till you die

 

I feel like a mountaintop thatís been weather worn to the ground

Iím not quite so tall anymore but I sure have spread around

Oooooh, time, time - It makes you old and it makes you blind

Yeeeeah, time, time, time, time

It heals all wounds Ė Is it gonna heal mine?

 

And I got two broken wings and I canít fly

I lost my directions when I fell from the sky

And I need a place to stop and mend my broken bones

Before I find my way back to my mountain top home, yeah
