lyrics

"If You Had Wings" (key of C)

A little bird told me
She was invincible, but now we see
This bird don't fly no more
Her little legs won't be
Good enough to walk again, never
"I expected this," said no one ever
But no one senses a car crash
And an ambulance was her endeavour

If you had wings
We could fly and you'd be fine
It's hard but I know that
Your mind's safe and sound
We'll strive for the things
You could be before God said
That you'd be better off
Staying on the ground

This little bird don't fly
I'm no help, but please mockingbird don't cry
It isn't the end of the world
Sit on my shoulders, you'll still touch the sky
You're no longer a chickadee now
All your friends reassure you but don't know how
Difficult it is to be a bird without wings
But our heads we bow

If you had wings
We could fly and you'd be fine
It's hard but I know that
Your mind's safe and sound
We'll strive for the things
You could be before God said
That you'd be better off
Staying on the ground

When the doctor said
She'd never walk again, our hearts filled with dread
Two years later, she's stronger now
And she's happy she's not dead
Now she sees the world in a whole new light
And when she thinks of flying, her eyes get bright
Cause she knows when she's taken home
She'll have her own pair of wings and she might

Fly with angels

Beause you don't need wings
To fly or to be fine
It's hard but we know
That your mind's safe and sound
You've found new things
You can be after God said
That you'd be better off
Flying on the ground.
