If I Had Wings
by Simple Minds



Open inside something about this pain
There's something about this sweet refrain
Reminds me that you're not there
And if I could care there's something about this curse
Like a needle inside a silken purse
Reminds me of all that you'd bring
If I had wings
I'm still standing

Blue mountain high
Only the fables get to fly
Without these words there's no reason why
It reminds me of all that you bring

If I had wings
Would like to teach myself
If I had wings
Would learn to stir myself
If I had wings
Strapped inside won't be denied

Nightmare brings
All that you said
And if I could fly
Long time saviour
That's the sinner's crime
Well without such trust
I know that I can never find
Never find, never find, never find

If I had wings
If I had wings

I'm still standing

Never find, never find, never find

Open inside something about this pain
There's something about this sweet refrain
Reminds me that you're not there
And if I could care there's something about this curse
Like a needle inside a silken purse
Reminds me of all that you'd bring
If I had wings
If I had wings
If I had wings
If I had wings
