About On Silent Wings

"On Silent Wings" is a song by Tina Turner with guest vocals from Sting. Released in April 1996 in support of Turner's Wildest Dreams album, the single performed well on the US and Canadian adult contemporary charts, peaking at numbers 24 and 13 respectively. The dance version of "On Silent Wings", remixed by Soul Solution, charted at number 47 on the US Dance Club Songs chart. Like much of Turner's later work, "On Silent Wings" enjoyed greater success in the United Kingdom, peaking at number 13 on the UK Singles Chart. It also topped Poland's LP3 Chart for five weeks. The single included the country-flavoured single edit with additional guitar overdubs, later appearing on the 2004 compilation All the Best, as well as a second alternative version of the track. Some formats also featured the non-album track "Do Something", written by Holly Knight and Mike Chapman and produced by Trevor Horn.

There was a time when I would have followed you 
To the end of the earth
I was willing to share it all with you, the love, the hurt
I've seen you when your dreams were falling in the dust
But I never stopped believing in you
I always thought our love was strong enough
One you could hold on to

You never see it coming you just let it fly
On silent wings, silent wings
You can't hide what you feel inside 
And the fire has left your eyes
On silent wings

I see us in my dreams and we're dancing
I can almost hear the song
But the prayers they go unanswered
We both know, we're just hanging on 
I can feel the change but I'll never know the reason why 
The rug was pulled so gently from under my feet
I only know that something good has died
Between you and me, oh, it's just a memory

You never see it coming, you just go separate ways
On silent wings, silent wings
There's no more promises to break, our love has slipped away 
On silent wings

You never see it coming, but you know it has to end
Silent wings, silent wings
I will never be the same again
I feel the whisper of the wind of silent wings
