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
