Alkaline Trio
Broken Wing
It ain't hard to get lost
When you forget where you come from
Turn that dial to the right
Push that pedal down
Don't say goodbye
Just for a drive
Along for the ride

It'd be real nice just to fly away
And escape everything
But little bird
Looks like you've got a broken wing
Now anything so easy
It might not make you weak
But it sure won't make me believe

It's hell, you say, and it gets worse, you know
How many more days am I gonna wake up when there's no place I wanna go?
If that sunshine's really gonna kill us all why is everyday so cold?
Why is everything so f**king cold
And never melts away

It'd be real nice just to fly away
And escape everything
But little bird
Looks like you've got a broken wing
Now anything so easy
It might not make you weak
But it sure won't make me believe

That's the top of your lungs
And the bottom of your heart
Is that the top of your lungs?
Is that the bottom of your heart?
Is that as deep as your heart goes?

I understand the things that keep you up
And I know that you still feel
And I know your heart is hemorrhaging
And needs some time to heal
Now the traffic lights there on your street
Flash yellow all the time
And the mirror in your bathroom it looks cracked in the wrong light
But walk out through your threshold
Fill your lungs and move on down the stairs
And let the things you love come back to you in time
We'll all get there
It'd be real nice just to fly away
And escape everything
But little bird
Looks like you've got a broken wing
Now anything so easy
It might not make you weak
But it sure won't make me believe
