Broken Bird

Original and similar lyrics
When you left here this morning, you were a broken bird You said you can't turn out the fire You can't turn out a fire Your senses were widened Your smile was hiding what you want nobody to see Broken bird, now you're free When you called from the pay phone You were a paper doll Said I couldn't tear you up easy As weak as you were and as strong as I was You think I'm stronger I think you're wrong, girl It's not easy to give you away Still you call just to say Just to say you were broken (just a terrible pair of wings) You were broken (just a terrible pair of wings) You were broken You were a broken bird Yeah, you knew when you met me That I was razor blade In these halls of bad memories I'll do what it takes just to cut 'em all loose Cause that's where I found you That's where I found you To a rocket headed straight for the moon Where I will meet you soon I could tell you were broken (just a terrible pair of wings) Stranded in motion (just a terrible pair of wings) You were broken You were a broken bird And you asked me for the world All I gave you was the falling sky Yeah, you asked me for the world All you needed as place to fly Yeah, you asked me for the world And I couldn't give you the world Cause you were broken (just a terrible pair of wings) Left your heart open (just a terrible pair of wings) You were broken You were a broken bird A broken bird You were broken (just a terrible pair of wings) Stranded in motion (just a terrible pair of wings) You were broken You were a broken bird

Aint No Way Around It

FASTER PUSSYCAT
My money's gone my tank is empty This dope-filled life has got the best of me Wait this can't be right But it's all written in black white (black white) I've been looking for the clown That's brought me up and dragged me down I've hocked my life and all my things For a beat up pair of broken wings That won't fly Ain't no way around it There ain't no way around it My crutch is gone my baby left me Took what I had to Tampa Bay Forget, No! I'll have my time Meanwhile I'm spaced out of my mind I've been looking for the clown That's brought me up and dragged me down I've hocked my life and all my things For a beat up pair of broken wings That won't fly Ain't no way around it There ain't no way around it My crutch is gone my baby left me Took what I had to Tampa Bay Forget, No! I'll have my time Meanwhile I'm spaced out of my mind I've been looking for the clown That's brought me up and dragged me down I've hocked my life and all my things For a beat up pair of broken wings That won't fly Ain't no way around it There ain't no way around it

Broken Wings

ANASTACIA "Resurrection"
Wings of an angel Replaced by beautiful scars We're hidden in the dark Time seems to stand still The world is falling apart So heavy on my heart And it's raining And it all comes crashing down Anyone would give up But not me not now Even with broken wings Even with shattered dreams I'm still gonna try I'm still gonna fly Even with broken wings I can do anything I found a strength I never knew I had in me With these broken wings Turning the pages Cuts like a knife once again Where does the end begins? Through all the stages A silent fighter remains You got to lose to win Through the fire And the smoke starts to clear Anyone would give up But not now not here Even with broken wings Even with shattered dreams I'm still gonna try I'm still gonna fly Even with broken wings I can do anything I found a strength I never knew I had in me With these broken wings I said I never doubt it Wrapped my hands around you Changed my everything Even with broken wings Even with shattered dreams I'm still gonna try I'm still gonna fly Even with broken wings Even with shattered dreams I'm still gonna try I'm still gonna fly Even with broken wings I can do anything I found a strength I never knew I had in me With these broken wings

Instinct

AS BLOOD RUNS BLACK "Instinct"
I knew that this was the last thing This was the last thing that I had to prove Have all my struggles amused you? This was the hardest thing to do I chewed through the chains With broken teeth in my mouth I was finally free Free in my own mind (free in my own mind) But I was always trapped inside I will escape from this cage and extend my broken wings I will escape from this cage and extend my wings I walked out on everything that I ever knew and now And now I find myself cold and alone Searching for strength The strength to stand on my own two feet Approaching the edge, taking the leap A leap of faith with my broken wings As I rise to my feet I realize I should be standing up for myself Why haven’t you? What do you have to lose? When there is so much to gain I will escape from this cage and extend my broken wings I will escape from this cage and extend my wings Why haven’t you? What do you have to lose? When there is so much to gain

Teaching Angels How To Fly

JACKIE EVANCHO "Prelude To A Dream"
Jackie, how do angels fly? Well, Kimberly, let me tell you how There are times in life gifts come our way We don't really realize til it's too late The smile on their faces light this world The innocence of each boy and girl Her name was Kimberly, my precious one And I cherish every day God gave to us Jackie, can you read it one more time Cause I'm not too sure how angels fly? Just like a bird up in the sky She spreads her wings And now she's soaring high She's farther than clouds can go She's past the stars Over the moon And she;s already broken through Where angels live and never die Our little Kimberly Is finally learning how to fly Now and then Ill hear her voice calling me When I feel the wind blow I know she's earned her wings I can feel the feathers Brush my face She leaves behind amazing grace Just like a bird up in the sky She spreads her wings And now she's soaring high She's farther than clouds can go She's past the stars Over the moon And she's already broken through Where angels live and never die Our little Kimberly Is finally learning how to fly Just like a bird up in the sky She spreads her wings And now she's soaring high She's farther than clouds can go She's past the stars Over the moon And she's already broken through Where angels live, never die Our little Kimberly Is teaching angels how to fly

Fragments

JAYMES YOUNG
It's a new chance A new day Avoiding the thought of you coming over I’ve been drafted into your war I feel shafted waking up On your shore once again I never really let you go Just thought that you should know Even though you broke my bones Your soul is where I made my home, my home, my home You were looking for another way out Try to fix these broken things All we had were fragments You were stumbling a new way down Falling on your broken wings All we had were fragments. Can't blame it all on you, Can't blame it all on me We were too young To try to start a family Of our own, of our own, of our own It's too bad you finally came to your senses I don't wanna hear a damn sentence Out of your mouth, out of your mouth You were looking for another way out Try to fix these broken things All we had were fragments You were stumbling a new way down Falling on your broken wings All we had were fragments. And it's hard looking back Knowing what I could've done I’m never going back I’m always on the run And you never really find The pieces that you leave behind All I got from this place is fragments. You were looking for another way out Try to fix these broken things All we had were fragments You were stumbling a new way down Falling on your broken wings All we had were fragments.
