Broken Wings

Words and Music by Raccoon

As recorded on White Horse Ranch Sessions

 

 

I got two broken wings and I canít fly

I lost my directions when I fell from the sky

I need a place to stop and mend my broken bones

Before I find my way back to my mountain top home

 

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

Oh, itís been a long time Ė I thought my quest would never end

 

The only way to bring me down is fill me fulla holes

But you canít stop my soaring soul

Here I go Ė Iím flyin' to the sun

And Iím not the only one

Thereís many people there that youíve never seen before

You never really cared enough to open up your doors

 

And oh, itís been a long time

You gotta keep on flying high

Oh, itís been a long time

You gotta try till you die

 

Timeís like a mountaintop thatís been weather worn to the ground

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

 

Oh, time, time, time

It steals your youth Ė It robs you blind

Oh, time, time, time

It heals all wounds Ė Is it gonna heal mine?

 

Iíve got two broken wings and I canít fly

I lost my directions when I fell from the sky

I need a place to stop and mend my broken bones

Before I find my way back to my mountain top home

 

And I got time

I got time

 

It wonít be long now before I am dead

Please take my feathers and stick 'em in some rich ladyís head

But I got time

I got time
