Broken Wings Words & Music by Chris de Burgh Intro: E - F#m - E/G# - A - E - F#m7/B - E - Esus4 E F#m E/G# A These broken wings can take me no further E B A E Esus4 I'm lost, and out at sea, E F#m E/G# I thought these wings would hold me forever E B A Ab And on to eternity, A E/G# A E And far away I can hear your voice, A E/G# Bsus4 I can hear it in the silence of the morning, B E F#m E/G# A But these broken wings have let me down E/G# F#m F#m7/B E Esus4 - E - Esus4 They can�t even carry me home. In broken dreams that keep me from sleeping I remember all the things I said, Well I've broken all the promises I said I would be keeping, They're gone, like leaves they fell, For it's so hard when you�re far away, All I needed was a shoulder I could cry on, Now these broken dreams have woken me, My love, will you carry me home. E Esus4 B Or will you treat me like some traveller A E/G# E On a dark and lonely road, F#m E/G# A E/G# F#m7 B Who sees a light and a woman who will give him love, E F#m Oh and just when she reaches the part E/G# A When she's supposed to comfort his broken heart E F#m B A - E/G# - F#m She turns away, and sends him travelling on, on. Oh when I left I believed that nothing would go wrong I thought the whole world would be waiting for my story, Take me back, my love, I need you now, Come back and carry me home, E D C#m A Take me back and heal these broken wings, F#m F#m7/B E F#m E/G# A - E - B - A - E Come back and carry me home.
