Broken Angel

HansonBuy this song

So small, yet still so proud 
At night before he dreams he looks into the clouds 
A high-flyer's what I want to be 
Seems they won't let me
Says I'm too small 
I don't feel small at all 

Break my dreams
That's what they'll do 
Well, I'm going to run away
And learn to fly like you 
I'm going to go so high
And swoop so low 
You can't bring me down
Going to be so proud 

Little angel, you got to learn to fly 
Get up and earn your wings tonight 
Little angel, just look in my eyes 
Get up and earn your wings tonight 

Push and shove, then climb aboard 
This is the shuttle train to the top of the world 
When you look around, what do you see?
These are all high-flyers 
But none of these high-flyers look like me 

What is that supposed to mean 
What am I supposed to be 

I pull my way up through this crowd 
To find your body crushed on the ground 
It's so obvious; why couldn't you see
That you can't go high-flying 
Without a pair of high-flyer wings?

Little one's broken lying on the ground 
Trying to get up 'till his last breath out 
Wings are strewn everywhere; there's blood all around 
'Cause even angels die, but that light just fades 
It's so sad, but he'd be so proud 

Broken angel, you've got to learn to fly 
Get up and earn your wings tonight 
Broken angel, just look in my eyes 
Get up and earn you wings tonight 
Get up and earn your wings, earn your wings tonight
