She sits in the dark
 Quietly cursing him and this love
 While she's rehearsing every line
She's gonna say when she walks away
On a wing and a prayer 

 Looking back at her in the mirror is a stranger  Years that have passed, how they seemed to change her
A woman once able to stand on her own
 Searches for strength to stand on her own
On a wing and a prayer 

On a wing and a prayer 
She's leaving tonight
 Holding her heart in her hands  Somewhere out there she knows that she'll find a love that understands 
Why she left there on a wing and a prayer 

She held on to maybe as long as she could, knowing he wouldn't
 Believing he would, give her a single reason to stay
To keep her from breaking away on a wing and a prayer 

On a wing and a prayer 
She's leaving tonight
 Holding her heart in her hands  Somewhere out there she knows that she'll find a love that understands 
Why she left there on a wing and a prayer 

 Somewhere out there she knows that she'll find a love that understands 
Why she left there on a wing and a prayer 
Oh, why she left there on a wing and a prayer
