Feathery Wings

You there on the bridge
Where’ve you been?
What’s your name?
And you there on the wall
Where will you go to
Once you’ve fall’n?
You, lost at sea
Do you need me?
Do you need directions?
Hey, put down the gun
What are you thinking?
You were someone’s son.

The taste of tears
The sting of pain
The sounds of crying
A long, long time ago
I fell to this place
From another dimension
And thrust amongst the beasts
And the way they behave
It borders on dementia
And now after all these years
I can barely take it
I don’t think I can make it
Take me away from here
I want to go home
I’m so sick and tired of…

The taste of tears
The sting of pain
The sounds of crying
(As you stand here
On the edge of your life
What do you remember?
Was it all you wanted?
I’m tryin’ to earn
a set of feathery wings
I wish I could protect you here
Oh, please don’t cry now, smile
As you stand here
At the edge of your life
Your troubles are over
Mine are just beginning
I’m tryin’ to earn
A set of feathery wings
To take me away from here
It’s me you leave behind.)
Oh, if only I could have been there
I’d be a hand for the sinking
If only I could have been there
I’d be a prayer for the dying
See the pain in my face
Oh, I’m so sick and tired of…

The taste of tears
The sting of pain
The sounds of crying
(As you stand here
On the edge of your life
What do you remember?
Was it all you wanted?
I’m tryin’ to earn
a set of feathery wings
I wish I could protect you here
Oh, please don’t cry now, smile
As you stand here
At the edge of your life
Your troubles are over
Mine are just beginning
I’m tryin’ to earn
A set of feathery wings
To take me away from here
It’s me you leave behind.)

The taste of tears
The sting of pain
The sounds of crying
You’re gone from here
Don’t leave from here
Don’t leave me here
I hate it here.
You’re gone from here
Don’t leave me here
I need you here
I need to see you smile.
